"Mirrors Paradise" as written by and Stian Andre/svensson Hinderson....
Time is running out for the planet Earth

Was it everything they told you?
Was it all the things they promised you?
Was it everything they told you?
Was it everything they said it would be?

Strange things move in the corner of my eyes
And the sky never looked so white and pretty
Tiny figures crawl upon my sterile flesh
There's a hole in the world, and it keeps getting bigger

Was it everything you hoped for?
Was it all the things you prayed for?
Was it everything you hoped for?
Was it everything you thought it would be?

How can you love it...
How can you believe it...
How can you need it...
When there's nothing there?
In space where the stars are dead now
The man in the moon still has a wicked face
But the more you reach for the heavens above
The more you'll hate your own pitiful love

Like a river flowing around me...mirrors paradise
Pulling me in its wake... mirrors paradise

How can you love it...
How can you believe it...
How can you need it...
When there's nothing there?
I want to show you something so much better
I'll make the world seem a little bit deader
You smile... but it's all despair
You love... but there's nothing there

Like a river flowing around me...mirrors paradise
Pulling me in its wake... mirrors paradise

    General CommentThey're "undeground", just like Dream Theater and Symphony X. VERY popular bands, just not main stream, which is just fine. :)

    General CommentWell guys,

    I've actually been in contact with Lex Icon (the leader sing, and also the writer of this song). He says its basically about a "cloned sheep heaven", stating that all this talk of heaven is just nothingness blown out of proportion. He's trying to say that people are living their lives hoping for some great afterlife, when theres not going to be one.

    General CommentKovenant fuckin rules but yeah they're a little underground. Not with the recording atleast but with the popularity factor. Imo more ppl should listen to this shit :)
