opening night player
myrtle gordon #1
she avoids her mirror
to be young again

very actor cycle
very not so clean
myrtle wears her broken mirror
on her aging sleeve

can not
stop now
in sleep
all the way

myrtle’s in the back room wondering why
it’s hard to believe she can never set her free screaming why

    General Commentgreat song. one of my favorites by this band. i think the lyrics are just telling a story. maybe about a person who's at the top but still hasn't found happiness.
