Flip It


Two sides of a coin,

Flip it

Heads or tails

Heads or tails

Looking in the mirror

Which side will show?

Flip it

Docile girl from next door

The one nobody sees

Bitter broken soul

Jaded gaze, controlled blank stare

Flip it

Lights on, nobody home

Nobody home

Glance in the mirror,

Roll the dice

Chance controlling fate

Mask on, hair down

Cover up the circles, the only truthful thing

A sign of reality

Of sleepless nights, battering myself

Shape up the putty till its form can wave and smile,

Lights on nobody home

All just players on stage, hiding behind the curtain,

What's on the other side?

Flip it
