I watched

Slippery slippery slippery sanity
Where is your mind at today?
You once recognized your reflections
I watched them slip-sliding away
.
I watched from the corner
As you reeled yourself in
And I watched as you gladly
let possession begin
.
Slippery sanity, dripped down the drain
There was no way to stay clean
Your buttons belonged to his remote
Your bullets in his magazine
.
I watched from my exile
As he changed your whole mind
And I watched as you simply
Chose to leave it behind
.
Sipping and sipping and sipping insanity
A junkie with endlessly supply
You looked like a girl fresh from Stockholm
Just what color was your world’s sky?
.
I watched from the corner
I was biding my time
And I watched as you realized
you’d committed no crime
.
Then you woke in a sweat, dripping in sanity
Fighting your conscience in fear
You finally noticed me watching
And smiled up at me in the mirror
.
