    The little girl is little no more
    She has grown up into a young woman
    She sees to eyes no longer
    Nor hears the sounds

    She takes her medication
    She's a good girl
    5 pills in the morning
    5 pills in the eve

    It's night yet again
    She's staying up
    Watching the television
    Always something good

    Commercial break, she's thirsty
    She goes to the kitchen
    Grabs a drink
    And looks in the mirror

    The reflection looks back
    Pretty like her owner
    Smiling oh-so sweetly
    If just a bit too widely

    She can't look away from herself
    The drink forgotten
    The eyes draw her further in
    And flash red

    All her fears come rushing back
    As her urine comes rushing out
    Her colour drains
    And her breathing stops

    The girl in the mirror just smiles
    She can see all the teeth
    1, 2, 3, 4
    She's never seen so many before

    33, 34, 35, 36
    Is that all there is?
    The lips spread further
    There's far too many teeth

    The eyes are growing
    Bigger, bigger, redder
    They're glowing now, ever so faintly
    Glowing dots in the deep abyss

    The skin in the mirror is red and black
    Burnt, bloody and flaking
    The hair is long and wet
    With gore and with spit

    In the mirror, hands are coming
    Out from behind the little girl
    She's a child again
    And begins to cry

    The hands have claws
    The hands are bony
    They reach out from behind
    And tear her apart

    She finally makes a sound
    But there's no daddy to save her
    No mommy to soothe her
    She's all alone

    She screams and screams
    She tries to run away
    She can't move, she can't flee
    And now the laughter she hears

    She wakes up in the hospital
    Chained to a bed
    She screams out in panic
    "It's all in your head."

    She has seen this man before
    Not bad looking, not at all
    He has a chart and a white coat
    And a tired smile on his lips

    "We'll have to up your dose
    Maybe have another peek.
    I must admitt, my dear
    You may have to stay here."

    Now she feels no fear
    No pain, either
    She feels no joy
    For always the guards come to beat her

    She stays there for 15 years
    Coming out a better person
    A little bruised, a little dead
    But at least she has no fear.

    (And roughly 50% longer than part 1, oh my.)
