"The Hall Of Mirrors" as written by and Schult/huetter/schneider-esleben....
The young man stepped into the hall of mirrors
Where he discovered a reflection of himself
Even the greatest stars discover themselves in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars discover themselves in the looking glass

Sometimes he saw his real face
And sometimes a stranger at his place
Even the greatest stars find their face in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars find their face in the looking glass

He fell in love with the image of himself
And suddenly the picture was distorted
Even the greatest stars dislike themselves in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars dislike themselves in the looking glass

He made up the person he wanted to be
And changed into a new personality
Even the greatest stars change themselves in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars change themselves in the looking glass

The artist is living in the mirror
With the echoes of himself
Even the greatest stars live their lives in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars live their lives in the looking glass

Even the greatest stars fix their face in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars fix their face in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars live their lives in the looking glass
Even the greatest stars live their lives in the looking glass

    Song MeaningThe song is about self-image, fame, and narcissism and general self-loathing; the idea of becoming disgusted or being mortified or being obsessed with your image when you look at yourself as a reflection or photograph or video of yourself. The band references that this sort of isolation is common, both with normal folks and the famous types and how such "stare into the abyss and the abyss stares back" vanity/obsession can result in a change in a person, though at the cost of losing one's identity and become lost in a world where you are constantly changing what you are and moreso, being detached from real life as you become more and more obsessed with vanity and your reflection and how others see you and how that affects how one sees themselves in the mirror.

    My OpinionThis song is regarding the control of the illuminati on the artists and media. The artists would sell their soul to the Devil in exchange of fame, and part of the deal is that they should appear in the media as the Devil would want them to be to promote Satan worship and New World Order, just like what is happening now to artists, most notably Miley Cyrus.
