It's where we keep our keys and cameras
It's where we hide our new identities
It's where we stash our snubnosed parachutes
And they're waiting when we need them
Only strangers ever see them

It's where we walk through fields of marigolds
It's where we lie in states of happiness
It's where we stand by all our alibis
And they're shining if we lose them
Only strangers ever use them

And here in the mirror
We report to our sister
And we beg to go with her
On her mission to deliver

It's where we step inside the firelight
It's where we look beyond the boundries
It's where we slip into the underground
And it's lonely when you breach it
Only strangers ever reach it

It's where we swim across the Hellespont
It's where we windsurf down Niagra
It's where we sail into the hurricane
Let the four winds blow above us
Only strangers learn to love us

And here in the mirror
We report to our sister
And we beg to go with her
On her mission to deliver

It's where we plot against our enemies
It's where we laugh at crazy foreigners
It's where we bow to all authority
Are we hollow? Are we jealous?
Only strangers ever tell us

It's where we crawl when things get difficult
It's where we cry when no one notices
It's where we dive beneath the parapets
Are we gamblers, are we chancres?
Only strangers know the answer

And here in the mirror
We report to our sister
And we beg to go with her
On her mission to deliver

It's where we sleep when skies are darkening
It's where we work to earn our vitamins
It's where we play before we sleep again
When it's often, first we choose it
Only strangers can refuse it

It's where we dream of golden fairy cakes
It's where we dance with gods and goddesses
It's where we end our fruitless reveries
In denial and frustration
Only strangers see salvation

And here in the mirror
We report to our sister
And we beg to go with her
On her mission to deliver
