these mirrors break
and now we've lost everything
pieces collect about me
despite my efforts
only i can be nothing
all i see are opaque expressions
and lives of depression
staring into glassy eyes
all is lost for compromise
all i see are opaque expressions
that lived for our incision
but now they fade
until they've faded away

    General Commentthe mirrors break
    now i've lost everything
    the pieces collect about me
    -he's upset with himself

    despite my effort
    only i can be nothing
    -explains why he's upset

    all i see are opaque expressions
    -he can't connect with anyone

    and more depression
    -because he's detached from everyone, he perceives the people around him to be depressed like he is (or maybe they really are depressed)

    staring into glassy eyes
    -further describes the opaque expressions

    all is lost for compromise
    -when you can't achieve your goals, you tell yourself to compromise

    all i see are opaque expressions
    live for incision
    -since he thinks everyone is depressed, he's saying people live for incision or self harm

    they fade
    i watch them fade away
    -he's becoming more and more distant from people
