Placing faith in mirrors that reflect only lies
Caged by fear that I could shatter with the pride in my eyes
Shaking off guilt, empowered by this rage
I am the only reason that I remain in a cage.
Longing for the sweet touch of love, blinded by those stars.
Finally I see that they are crossed, and not even ours.
I don't belong you see, in this place in between.
I come from somewhere up above, down below, unseen.
Eyes wrapped with silk, my head spun round.
I cannot see, or feel, or hear a sound.
Cut the bonds, lift the fold, free my soul from within
Before I suffocate, writhing here, trapped beneath my skin.
Light twisted, darkness falling.
But I stand too tall to fall down crawling.
Shaking, pointing, silent rage.
But I am the only reason, I'm still here in this cage.
Smashing silver panes of glass that tell me I am real.
So that I can look within and think nothing; only feel.
Reflections are false, not pure like the heart.
Glass falling; shrieking; I can finally start.
I've broken these walls, torn the silk from my sight.
I see tougher things now, not softened to be bright.
My fear disappears, and thus the source of my rage.
And I am the reason I will be free of this cage.
