sonnerie téléphone portable pour 'i went to the mirror'

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?"

Uh oh, here i go thinking them crazy thoughts again.
Who is that there? you mean i been walking around
In that all these years? what's it all about?
Where's it all at? i don't want to get heavy but
What am i doing here? uh

My lip has a dark spot upon it
(the voice of a mature adult who's comprehensive
Capacity has suddenly been reduced to that of a
Cherrystone clam)
My teeth look like plastic in chips
And there on my chin i discover
One lonely red and arrogant zit
I went about my business this morning
You got to get out of bed and make that bread
But try as i may to get away
I won't forget what i seen in the mirror today

Boogie on out to a brand new day.
Get off your back and dance!

I seen my eyes. i seen my nose. my lips. my teeth.
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...
