Mirror Mix 

Tonight, I looked into the mirror
And this, this is what I heard
All at once.
Let the whole world fall away
And walk into my grave
All at once.
It is all happening tonight.
All at onceÖ

          So come here; my star is fading;
                                                                                I swerve out of control.
          Come on, my star is fading
     And I see no chance of release,
     And I know Iím dead on the surface,
     But I am screaming underneathó

                              Iím sick of the secrets,
          Stuck on the end of this ball and chain
          And Iím on my way back down again.
          Stood on a bridge, tied to the noose,

Iím sick of the secrets:
Don't cut me loose.

Selling out
Is not my thing.
Walk awayó
I won't be broken again,
                                        I'm not,
I'm not what you think.

                   Nothing equals nothing.

          Turn to stone,
        Lose my faith:
       I'll be gone
     Before it happens,

I'll be gone.

                                                  I dreamed I was dying; as I so often do,
                                                                         And when I awoke I was sure it was true.

                    Would you follow me?

                              Will you walk into the grave with me?
                    Will you leave this empty world,
          Soft and wistfull?
To sink into the dark, dark earth
And never reappear would be blissful.
This must be your skin that I'm sinking in,
This must be for real because now I can feel,
          And I didn't mind:
          It's not my kind,
          Not my time to wonder why
Everything's gone white
And everything's grey,
          Iím not ready for this.

Though I thought I would be.
I canít see the future,
Though I thought I could see.
I donít want to leave you,
Even though I have toó
Can I go my own way,
Can I pray my own way?
I donít want to leave you,
Oh, I need you!
Am I ready for this?
Did I think I would be?
Can I see the future?
No, I canít see.

                                                            But I still tell you everything,
                                                            And I hope that you won't tell on me.
                                                            And I'd give you anything,
                                                            And I know that you won't tell on me.
                                                            And I can only cry,
                                                            And I can only cower,
                                                            And I can only cry:

                                                            You have all the power.

                                                                                                                        Still, time is never time at all:
                                                                                                                        You can never ever leave without leaving a piece of you,
                                                                                                                        And our lives are forever changed,
                                                                                                                        We will never be the same,
                                                                                                                        The more you change the less you feel.
                                                                                                                        Believe, believe in me, believe!
                                                                                                                        In the resolute urgency of now!
                                                                                                                        We'll crucify the insincere tonight!
                                                                                                                        We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight,
                                                                                                                        The impossible is possible tonight!
                                                                                                                        Believe in me as I believe in you, tonight,
                                                                                                                               Breathe in the air:

          Don't be afraid to careó
                    Leave, but don't leave me,

                                        Run, rabbit, runÖ
          Dig that hole, forget the sun.
       And when at last the work is done
     Don't sit down:
    It's time to dig another one,

                                        Race toward an early grave...

Iím sick of the secrets.

Believe in me as I believe in you tonight,
Time is not a thing we can save,
So believe in me quick
And follow me close, empty,
To my grave.
