We slip into this world so bleak

To be surrounded by the weak

Look around and know your place

See the mirror reflection of your face

Distorted, it denies, and then it cracks

Everything you ever tried to grasp

Smashing every dream you ever had

Millions of voices in your head

Screaming out all at once

Catching you up in their deluge

Take a look in the mirror

And see what you're afraid you'll see

(Chorus)

Broken glass and broken dreams

Lacerations to your skin

Blood flowing dark and red from deep within

Laugh and the world laughs with you

Cry and the world laughs at you

(End Chorus)

Slipping deep within your mind

Trying to find the answers you once denied

What is the meaning of life

To feel pain or to share joy

A simple tool of destiny and fate's new toy

And then you scream

You try to awaken from the dream

But the dream becomes reality

The lie becomes the truth

And now it's plain to see

You can't escape your destiny

And then the dream shatters

(Chorus)

Broken glass and broken dreams

Lacerations to your skin

Blood flowing dark and red from deep within

Laugh and the world laughs with you

Cry and the world laughs at you

(End Chorus)

No escape, no escape, no escape

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Reality closes in, choices open up

Choose to live, or choose to die

Choose to sleep, or choose to fly

Surround yourself with the weak

And once again you'll know your place

The voices in your mind have ceased

The distortion of the mirror goes away

A misconception of being saved

This breath you breathe will be your last

And then the mirror shatters

(Ending Chorus)

Broken glass and broken dreams

Lacerations to your skin

Blood flowing from deep within, dark and crimson

No more laughing, no more crying

The world has had the last laugh, the end is here
