The ordeal has begun
To oblige the unknown, within me

As I drown
Cannot remember, cannot think
As I sink, deep...

Near the monolith of doubt
Creeps the fear
The fear to lose yourself
In the severe reflection

I don't know
A flashing moment that has frozen me
My whole existence passed by
Through the trusted eyes of a mirror
But it wasn't me I could see

This monolith of everything that I have been
Is vacillated and aghast
The inexorable time has taught me once again
That my features will change and macerate me

See, it's me, my monolith of doubt

    General CommentThis song is about a woman who is growing old but doesn't want to accept it.

    Her "monolith of doubt" is her fear to accept the fact that her beauty is fading away, her fear to "lose herself in the severe reflection." (the severity of her aging in the mirror)

    The monolith of everything she has been in her youth is now "vacillated and aghast" (it's in ruins, or unstable). Time has taught her that her physical features will change and dry the beauty from her face.

    A pretty upsetting song when I think about it too much!

    General CommentI believe you are right. At first I didn't know what the hell it was about, because it uses alot of sophisticated words that I've never heard of (I'm from norway), but I researched the words and it seems to be about facing your mirror.

    I also think it's about a woman finally realizing that she is getting older.

    General CommentAt first I though this song is about people who feel troubled and stressed of what they might've done are somehow regretting it, and it gets over them.
