Mirror musings

Projections are my favourite psychological phenomenon. The transfer of part of our unconscious content to another being.

Our friends who do not exist

Oh, the passengerHe rides and he ridesHe looks through his windowWhat does he see?He sees the silent hollow skyHe see the stars come out tonightHe sees the city’s ripped backsidesHe sees the winding ocean driveAnd everything was made for you and meAll of it was made for you and me‘Cause it just belongs to you…
