In a voice soaked with euphoria:
I went to the mirror this morning
I looked in the mirror instead
The first thing to come into focus
Was a face wrapped all around my head
There's something sticking out of the middle
I guess it's my nose (I suppose)
I just don't recognize those eyes
All these years I've been watching from the other side
The voice is now one of brutal stupefication. The underlying question is - "If
you went crazy, would you know it?"

My, my gums. I seen my gums! I looked all the way
down my throat! I looked at my ears. I looked real
hard at my ears. I looked at my hair. I think I'm going
bald. I had hair all over the sink or something...
