about

"Look in the mirror - can you see your destiny? Can you see the blood flowing in your veins? Can you fight it, deny it?
Farewell - cause mirrors don't lie".......
Farewell - Mirrors Don't Lie is I Ya Toyah's second single from the full length debut album Code Blue. The song talks about the experience of a loss that makes a significant alteration in our life and distorts the way we perceive the reality and ourselves.
The loss described here can be anything that is essential to us: love, sanity, values, freedom - dealing with which can be ultimately difficult and lead to alienation or realization of temporariness of things, and perhaps, the destiny we cannot escape.
Written, recorded and produced by I Ya Toyah at Bradley Mental Institute.
Mixed and mastered by Brad Pack of Punchy Kick.

lyrics

I asked you to stay
But you turned away
Bitter farewell
It feels like it happened only yesterday
Ooooooaaaa...
Life
Is just a fantasy
Tale
Of mortality
I challenge it
Every possible way
There is no tomorrow and no yesterday
Oooooaaaa...
And I am just lookin, look into my eyes
To see
And I’m just lookin, look into my eyes
Mortality
And I’m just lookin, look into my eyes
To realize
And I’m just lookin, look into my eyes
I have no chance
These mirrors don’t lie...
I only look one way
There’s no tomorrow
No yesterday
Illusion feeds my mortality
I’ll live up to insanity
The meaning of it all
The tale of life
challenge of it all
Your egocentric self
Always in control
There is no tomorrow
No yesterday for sure
These mirrors won't lie…..
