LyricsEdit

It is time to reflect upon your 'ego-self'. Nowhere to hide when the walls echo the you that we all see. Ah, the smiles dissolve! The pulse begins to race; the face a flush of fear so plainly painted. The Mirror World - the Mirror Maze: Confrontation...

Inside the mirror mazeEdit

HIPPIE:
Mirror mirror I can see a lonely child, he kinda looks like me
Staring out into infinity
His father lies, his mother cries, his spirit flies up in the skies
Wandering off to another galaxy

FUTUREMAN:
Secret fears we all try to hide
Lie dormant deep inside us
Defy the ghosts of long forgotten days
Here inside the mirror maze

HIPPIE:
Mirror mirror I can see an angry boy, oh well I guess he's me
Rising up to the society
He's aware that no one cares and life's unfair so he grows his hair
And takes a trip into eternity

FUTUREMAN:
Secret fears we all try to hide
Lie dormant deep inside us
Defy the ghosts of long forgotten days
Here inside the mirror maze

Through the mirrorEdit

ROMAN:
I see a man, who's unable to withstand his fears inside
KNIGHT:
Inside we're all but frightened men
But we have to fight until the end is here
ROMAN:
Hear what I say: I am doomed
I have to pay, I can't go on
KNIGHT:
Go on and persevere
For we have to make it out of here alive
ROMAN:
A life is but a dream,
For in the mirror I have seen what lies within
KNIGHT:
Within this armour cold and bright
Lies a noble heart with the will to fight fight the pain
ROMAN:
The pain cannot be healed,
I'm surrounded by this shield I cannot break
KNIGHT:
Break through the mirror now
Follow me, I will show you how

ROMAN:
We've reached the other side,
I have overcome my pride and made it through
KNIGHT:
We threw aside our darkest fears
And stepped across these new frontiers of time
ROMAN:
Time can only tell what awaits us in this hell full of deceit
KNIGHT:
Deceit, guile and treachery
Will they ever set us free again?

ROMAN:
Riding on the wings of time
