Ever watch someone talk themselves till diminished,
nitpick every thing you said out to be flawless,
and now they're finished?

You sit back and think,
"Well damn, I thought I was making you feel better."
But all I did was give you the words behind the trigger,
that's what I figure.

'Cause I said this.
but you said that.
And I meant that.
but you meant this.

Suddenly, it's like a mirror reflection.
What I see in you, someone saw in me.
and that's what I projected.
Wow! We've both been infected.

We see in others what we don't ever witness in ourselves.
Don't feel bad. I'm just a little overwhelmed.
