Ayreon – The Mirror Maze lyrics

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...

[A. Inside the mirror maze]

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

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

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 growa his hair
And takes a trip into eternity

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

[B. Through the mirror]

[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 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
