here seems to be something going on inside of you
Maybe what you need is just another point of view
But not from me, that's not for me to do
So, step back, relax, take a second, look inside of you

And you can see an image of yourself you never saw before
Despite all the trauma you've felt
If one way or another, we all are bright stars
It's just a simple way to find out who we really are

Chorus
Why do we let it out of control? Has all this taken a toll?
I don't know if we can take anymore
We've got to stop and take a look in the mirror before


Step back, take a look inside yourself
From the outside, you can see someone else staring back at you
It's your reflection

Why do you feel so empty every time you've had enough?
Well, maybe you don't realize with what you've been filling up
It's plain to see that eventually you will see
The Jekyll and Hyde game in your mind is just a simile

Chorus

Before your perception has started to get a little numb
And your perfection isn't helping anyone
Your reflection is the only way for you to see
For your protection, you need to see reality

Chorus

    General Commentim pretty sure this song is about learning to be yourself and when you feel like youre not being who you really are you need to take a step back and listen to your heart
