"Through the Looking Glass" as written by and Robert J. Kral....
I can feel the sands of time
Passing through the hourglass
And it shimmers in my eyes
As I linger in the wake
As eternity escapes
I begin to realize.

We'll walk a thousand miles just to see for ourselves.
Look behind our eyes
Find our hell.
And in the light of the sun we go.
Through rain and raging snow
To find the things we do not know.

I will go
Never laying low
Just tell me how to breathe
And I will make it so.
You must know
That this is not for show
And if you are not wise (it will)
Be your demise.

Once I walked along a field
Another nightmare in my mind
And beheld the fearful symmetry.
Everything was beautiful
Even things that were dead
And I surged with violent imagery.

I walked a thousand miles just to see for myself
Looked behind my eyes
And found my hell.

We'll walk a thousand miles just to see for ourselves.
Look behind our eyes
Find our hell.
And in the light of the sun we go.
Through rain and raging snow
To find the things we do not know.

I will go
Never laying low
Just tell me how to breathe
And I will make it so.
You must know
That this is not for show
And if you are not wise (it will)
Be your demise.

We come to honor; to stand or die
To pass the hours of our lives.
We burn the silence and all the lies.
To fuel the fire inside our eyes
We all go!

And in the light of the sun we go.
Through rain and raging snow
To find the things we do not know.

I will go
Never laying low
Just tell me how to breathe
And I will make it so.
You must know
That this is not for show
And if you are not wise (it will)
Be your demise.

Come to honor
Stand or die.
Fuel that fire in your eyes.

    General CommentI believe the song is about a young man who is a soldier. He reflects the things he has seen and now everything he sees reminds him of the horrible things he has experienced as a soldier. He has to constantly remind himself of how this is actually happening and that he is not dreaming. The chorus is about a message he sends to someone he loves, and how he promises to come back. In the end, the "We come to honor" segment (my favourite part of the song). He realizes that he is fighting for his country and "fuels the fire in his eyes".
    Kinda literal, but that's what I think about.
