about

In the Greek myth, Narcissus was enticed to a pool where he fell in love with his own reflection, wouldn't leave, and eventually died. I imagined just giving the narcissist a gentle push to speed things along.

lyrics

You and your reflection
Such a pretty pair
Models of perfection
White teeth and shiny hair
To you your life's a movie
And you're the superstar
The rest are only extras
But they all know who you are


If only you could pry your eyes away
If only you would take a look around
You might see me sneaking up behind you
To remind you that Narcissus drowned


The center of attention
Better than the rest
Monopolize discussion
You deserve only the best
But on the day you're lonely
You'll be left with no one else
And when the mirror cracks my friend
You can't hide from yourself

Do you remember when you had it all
Before you let it go straight to your head
They say that pride goes before a fall
You're going down with no one to catch you
