"Looking Glass" as written by and Gary Winston/chater Withem....
day break on the city streets from the corner of her eye
pass the man who holds the box he'll try to get inside
faces look back at me from their places on the wall
above the girl who held the shiny looking glass

she said
all faces in here, have an undercoat of blue
if you look real close with this glass of mine
you can pick out every hue
i took the glass from her hand and held it to the sky
i took one glimpse, i slipped and fell
into the other side

CHORUS
sometimes i can't see how far we've come
sometimes i feel like me body's gone numb
sometimes i can't see how far we've come
but i step back, and i look again
and my chains come undone

back out on the sidewalk now crashing through the night
feel first breath of air bringing in the sun
on the bench ahead a man sat, playing national guitar
i didn't recognize the tune but i dropped change in his jar

the first notes to hit my ears didn't sound quite right
but i let the sound wash over me
and it got me through the night

CHORUS

(solo)

step inside take a look at the tapestry untied
sadly saw the details that occupy your mind
can you see a picture that is coming into view
the journey started long ago, now see the story through

see, see, see how far we've come
feel, feel, feel what has begun
we can be, be, be headed towards the sun
if we free ourselves from these chains
