Finished looking for the answers
Now I'm looking for the questions
I can look into you mirror and see inside your head
See my reflections and this is what I've bled
I look right into your mirror but I can't see me

Everything's gone backwards
Nothing's what it seems
I awake from my nightmares
Smash the mirror, smash the dreams

Backwards into future
Now you're making up for lost time
I hide under the shadow and try to hide my name
Eyes that will question and this is what I mean
I look back into the mirror
But still don't see me

Everything's gone backwards
Nothing's what it seems
I awake from my nightmares
Smash the mirror, smash the dreams

Smash the mirror, smash the dreams

Everything's gone backwards
Nothing's what it seems
I awake from my nightmares
Smash the mirror, smash the dreams

Smash the mirror, smash the dreams

    General Commentthese are some shallow lyrics but at the least the song sounds decent. the guy can see through the fakeness and fronts that people put up, but they can't see through him because he's too complex for them. even though they don't know the real him sometimes he feels exposed and violated...? and maybe he's wondering if he's starting to become like the people he hates?

    General CommentI like the mix of techno-ish beats and rock guitars and things, it goes well together, I think there's too many effects on his voice though, I'd like it to be a little clearer, good song though.

    General CommentIt's shallow because rich boy Biff wrote the lyrics. Great band, but a different singer would help

    General CommentBecause Biff being rich has anything to do with his musical talent. Anyway, Evan Seinfeld from Biohazard cowrote this song.
