"Mirror Song" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....





I know that I should think about giving

and think about

helping out

and think about

think about living

but I can't seem to rescue myself

what about my bank account

and my holy desert shield

that keep me dry under that arms?

flags and mental jewelry's all I know

and they keep me happy and warm inside

so I said unto this man

"who are you and where do you come from?"

and he proceeded to tell me many things

but I said nothing at all

for the flower in the corner, by the room,

in the window, and the sun

said it all

at least they said they would

said they could

mama said they would

do me good

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the illusions we create in life. How these illusions give us a false sense of happiness and entitlement. It's all "flags and mental jewelry". We use these bank accounts and desert shields to keep life at bay.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of somebody that I used to know. All heart, but in the complete wrong places; as if it would somehow make up for the course of actions that life can take. So I said unto this man... for the flower in the corner by the room in the window and the sun, said it all... But what about my bank account? I am the sum of all my actions; not to be valued by a currencey figure. Not to be "holyer than thou". Not to be #1 in the world. Just myself, and my choice of actions... Although, I can not say "I said nothing at all" anymore. :)

    General Commentthis is one of my favorite Live songs. i get from it a perspective of going through life being controlled by the pursuit of money and material things. While on the flip side you can truly live life for what it is and experience many many many things which is worth more (to me anyway). the part about the flower in the corner in the window in the sun seems like that is what the person related too and all he knew about was stayin in one place ruled by the same comforts he surrounded himself by
