"Glass House" as written by Jason Mcarthur, Jasen Rauch, Anthony Armstrong, Joe Rickard, Randy Armstrong, Mike Barnes and Josh Baker....
We deceive the world with lies we hide
Behind the smiles
We conceal a home of desperate hearts
The truth has fallen down
The illusion we've become
A fear we can't outrun
We're closing in our emptiness
We're broken

You alone, you can see right through
This glass house we call home
You alone, you can take away the pain
Yeah, you have shown, you can break right through
This glass house of our souls
Make us whole again, make us whole

We fight to cover up the scars
From our charade
There's a war between who we are
And who we make-believe
It's over now, we're fallin' but

You alone, you can see right through
This glass house we call home
You alone, you can take away the pain
Yeah you have shown, you can break right through
This glass house of our souls
Make us whole again, make us whole

I'm running to escape the walls
That trap this hurt inside
The door is open, please come save me
I never want to hide behind
The disguise that I've become
That I've become

'Cause you alone, you can take away the pain
Yeah, you have shown, you can find a way to change
Yeah, you alone, you can see right through
This glass house of our souls
Make us whole again
Make us whole again
Make us whole again

    My InterpretationThis whole album appears to be about the state of mankind. Red albums have a habit of of centering each one around a certain concept. "End of Silence" was about searching and finding God once you've lost everything. "Innocence and Instinct" was about the war within us and proving your innocence. "Until We Have Faces" was about finding your identity. Release the Panic was hard to decipher, but it appears to be about the fragile state of mankind itself. And how people are spiraling toward self-destruction. This song is practically the epitome of that idea. God is the only one who can break though the lies that have been fed to us through the media and politics. Glass house is about god saving us.

    There's a war between who we are
    And who we make believe

    I, I'm running to escape the walls
    That have trapped this hurt inside

    I, I Never want to hide behind
    The disguise that I've become

    My InterpretationWe can't hide the lies we say or cloud the judgement of others by trying to cover ourselves up. As hard as some try, they end up bringing it all back up.

    General CommentIts seems that every album has hints of recovery and different stages of recovery or addiction. Getting into recovery, relapse, find help in recovery, getting back there lives
