i think we've all known at least one distortionist in life, am i right? i for one am NOT a fan of being blamed for others mistreating me. of course distortionists will say that about themselves too, which sucks, but the most you can do is be the better person, trust that others will see the true reflection for themselves, and. maybe. write a song about it. oops

"The Distortionist" is an original song by Ghost featuring YOHIOloid. It is based off of a person they knew in real life.
The song is about a person who controls mirrors to reflect him as a good person. The mirrors, however, become self-aware, starting to reflect his true self. When a mirror "betrays" him, he smashes it with a metal bat and either blames the mirror for breaking or says he can't control himself, so he isn't to blame as well.
Eventually, the mirrors work together, reflecting spotlight on the Distortionist, burning off his skin and revealing the true person they tried to reflect all the time. The Distortionist secludes himself in his own private little world, looking at his reflection and denying he ever has done anything wrong.
