I know I'm smiling but don't take it as for what it seems
'Cause the only time I'm happy is when I'm in my dreams
'Cause my life is that lonely kid cast out in the shadows
Full of tears, frowns, and many lost battles
Down in a black hole trying to escape depression
But you can't run away from what will always be your reflection
And as you run away reality is getting nearer
And instead of changing you, you try to change the mirror
But what do you do when the mirror falls down?
Breaking apart as it hits the ground
And now you have nothing to hide behind
And now you need the courage you have yet to find
Because fear and sorrow are just emotions that play tricks on your mind
Trying to prevent you from making your life and dreams intertwine
But instead of giving in you try to break out
Rebuilding the happiness that fear and sorrow take out
Because the obstacles you have aren't important it's about how you handle it
Because fear can only be as bad as you imagine it
And sorrow comes with tears just as gray clouds come with rain
And then it will pass quicker than it came
So just be proud you didn't cut yourself with the mirror's glass
And just know that the worst already passed
But if you look in a mirror again, look with open eyes
So if you don't like the out, you can take a look inside

humankind has not woven the web of life. we are but a thread within it,whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. all things are bound together all things are connected.
