Spend some time away
Getting ready for the day you're born again
Spend some time alone
Understand that soon you'll run with better men

Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone

No use looking out
It's within that brings that lonely feeling
Understand that when you leave here
You'll be clear
Among the better men

Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone
Alone again
Alone again
Alone again
Alone

    General CommentA chamber of reflection is a secluded room in a masonic lodge where candidates who are interested in joining the masons go to reflect before they join. This song is clearly about someone going in the chamber and reflecting on himself. When he leaves the chamber he'll be among the better men, the masons. Weird for Mac to sing about the masonic rituals like this, very creepy stuff if you ask me.

    Spend some time away
    Getting ready for the day
    You're born again

    Spend some time alone
    Understand that soon you'll run
    With better men
    Alone again (x's 4)
    Alone

    No use looking out
    It's within, that brings that
    Lonely feeling

    Understand that
    When you leave here
    You'll be clear
    Among a better man

    Alone again (x's 4)
    Alone

    Alone again (x's 3)
    Alone

    General CommentTo me it seems like a warning to the listener that loneliness doesn't go away with the presence of others. Instead, one should understand that emptiness is something much deeper, and one should look towards his/her inner self to truly understand the feeling (No use looking out
    It's within that brings that lonely feeling).

    My Interpretationfor me he only wanted to talk about those times we left people because we feel empty, then we move away, we are left alone, we think and we think that by staying alone the way is open to new friends, new people who can show us something happy and happy, so the reflection chamber could be our own room that after we were alone in it we went out and met new people, but the criticism is not to look for happiness in them because you can only be happy inside with yourself and if you can not find you will feel alone again, no matter whether you have new companies or not.

    Song MeaningIn greek mythology, 'chamber' represents 'excessively stretched ballsack', and 'reflection' represents vanity. This song is a cautionary tale that attempts to warn the listener that stretching one's ballsack tissue past a certain length will have diminishing returns, and in fact Reflect one's ego back filling the void inside the ballsack, ultimately destroying it.
