Hello mirror
So glad to see you my friend it's been a while
Searching, fearless
Where do I begin to heal this wound of self-denial?

Face yourself man
Brace yourself and
Trace your hell back

You've been blinded
Living like a one way cold existence all the while
Now it's time to
Stare the problem right between the eyes you long lost child

I wanna feel your body breaking, wanna feel your body breaking
And shaking and left in the cold
I wanna heal your conscience making
A change to fix this dying soul, this dying soul
This dying soul

Born into this world a broken home
Surrounded by love yet all alone
Forced into a life that's split in two
A mother and a father both pulling you

Then you had to deal with loss and death
Everybody thinking they know best
Coping with this shit at such an age
Can only fill a kid with pain and rage

Family disease pumped through your blood
Never had the chance you thought you could
Running all the while with no escape
Turning all that pain in to blame and hate

Living on your own by twenty one
Not a single care and having fun
Consuming all the life in front of you
Burning out the fuse and smoking the residue

Possessive obsessions
Selfish childish games
Vengeful resentments
Passing all the blame

Living out a life of decadence
Acting without thought of consequence
Spreading all your lies from coast to coast
Spitting on the ones that matter most

Running power mad with no control
Fighting for the credit they once stole
No one can ever tell you what to do
Ruling other's lives while they can't stand the thought of you

And the living reflection
Seen from miles away
A hopeless affliction
Having run astray

I wanna feel your body breaking, wanna feel your body breaking
And shaking and left in the cold
I wanna heal your conscience making
A change to fix this dying soul, this dying soul
This dying soul

Now that you can see all you have done
It's time to take that step into the kingdom
All your sins will only make you strong
And help you break right through the prison wall

Come to me my friend
(Listen to me please)
I'll help this torture end
(Help to set me free)

Let your ego go
(Can't carry this load)
You can't go through this alone
(I feel so hopeless and exposed)

You'll find your peace of mind
(Give me some direction)
You can no longer hide
(Break out of this isolation)

Let humility
(Openness, honesty)
And become what you can be
(Healing tranquility)

Help me, save me, heal me
I can't break out of this prison all alone

These tormenting ghosts of yesterday
Will vanish when exposed
You can't hold onto your secrets
They'll only send you back alone

Your fearless admissions
Will help expel your destructive obsessions
With my help I know you can
Be at one with God and man

Hear me, believe me, take me
I'm ready to break through this prison wall
