"Mind's Mirrors" as written by and Tomas/thordendal Haake....
The feeding frenzy of my starving soul, gnawing voraciously at the bones, the exo-skeletal patchwork protecting my own reflection within
The twin-and-same engaged in the mirrored act of chewing away at the shell of my attacking self. The paradox unseen

Treacherous this deceit to make no choice matter
To have and yet lose yourself until finally all reasons why are forgotten
To live through ones own shadow, mute and blinded is to really see
Eclipse the golden mirror and the reflection is set free

    General CommentI personally feel that you guys are close but not quite there. I feel that this song is about people who get so caught up in what they think they should be, or what people want them to be, that they lose who they really are. Like peer pressure, they have a group of friends so they begin to like and dress and act similar to those people.

    "The feeding frenzy of my starving soul, gnawing voraciously at the bones the exo-skeletal patchwork protecting my own reflection within."

    This person or people in general start to eat away at what they are replacing it with what they think it should be, thus protecting there own reflection within.

    "The twin and same"

    The new personality, but the same person

    "Engaged in the mirror act of chewing away at the shell of my attacking self. The paradox unseen."

    The attacking self being the new self, but this person has become so caught up in what they "should be" that they dont even realize that it is happening thus the paradox unseen.

    "Treacherous this deceit, to make no choice matter."

    The new self betraying ones real self making no choice matter because you are making choices for this new self, not making choices for you or what your true self wants, making choices you feel that others would approve of.

    "To have and yet lose yourself until finally all reasons why are forgotten. To live through ones own shadow."

    You are you, but this new pseudo self and it gets to the point that you don't know why you are even doing what you are doing or like what you like, you are living through your shadow.

    "Mute and blinded is to really see. Eclipse the golden mirror and the reflection is set free."

    Being unchanged by your surroundings is how you should really be, that when you can eclipse this fake self that you look at when looking in a mirror then your reflection can be set free, you can be yourself even though you like certain people and certain things, you just need to smash the mirror your mind has made itself (or eclipse it making no reflection at all) and your true self will be set free.

    This is just how i feel about this song, and honestly i have dealt with this problem and noticed it in my own life, hard thing to overcome, but you just need to know who you are and stay true to yourself. 8D cheers
