"Figure In The Mirror" as written by and Hannes Medwenitsch Thomas Rainer....
Every time you put this mask on your face
A little piece of your soul dies away

The figure in the mirror's not me
A different reality
It's just a picture that you see
From my true self, I do flee

What I feel and what I see
I do through eyes of an enemy
Forced by powers pushing me
Resulting in fear and misery

I change myself to fit the needs....
During this Mutation my heart bleeds
Trying to adjust to Society
Not anymore I want to be free

The figure in the mirror's not me
A different reality
It's just a picture that you see
From my true self, I do flee
(x2)

Only a few could break the shell
Surrounding my soul's polluted well
Drink from it and you will see
All the pain that rests in me

It's like Pandora's box
With a number of haunted locks
The one who sees deep inside
knows all the feelings I do hide

Once you took a look inside of me
You decide between joy and misery
If you abuse the things you know

    General CommentI think this song is about a person that's trying to hide their true personality from society so he/she can fit in, yet they are only hurting themselves emotionally and mentally.
