I stand surrounded by the walls that once confined me.
Knowing I'll be underneath them when they crumble, when they fall.
With clarity my scars remind me,
Ash still simmers just under my skin

Indifference smiles again
So much I hide
How is stepping back a move forward?

Now I'm forced to look behind
I'm forced to look at you
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you
(You know it well)
Broken mirrors paint the floor
Why can't you see the truth?
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you.
Tell me which is you.

Here only time made no change
Pointing fingers, laying blame.
Lying over and over and over and over.
Deceiving your mind
Dug my grave, trashed my name
Yet here I stand, so you won't fade away

Indifference smiles again
So much I hide
How is stepping back a move forward?

Now I'm forced to look behind
I'm forced to look at you
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you
(You know it well)
Broken mirrors paint the floor
Why can't you see the truth?
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you.
Tell me which is you.

I bleed inside
(Wanna bleed?)
Just let it out
(You gotta let it out)
Just let it out
(You gotta let it out)
I bleed inside
(Inside)
Just let it out
(You gotta let it out
Just let it out
(Just let it out)
Let it die!

Now I'm forced to look behind
I'm forced to look at you
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you
(You know it well)
Broken mirrors paint the floor
Why can't you tell the truth?
You wear a thousand faces
Tell me, tell me which is you

You wear a thousand faces,
Tell me which is you.

Tell me which is you.

    He's trying to forget his old messed up life and never go back to it. He cannot come back to his old life. He's being tempted to go back to his evil ways, and this song is about his struggle.

    LOL ''That bullshit'' is not the part of the lyrics, that's the sound of Tremonti's guitar, his guitar basically says THAT BULLSHIT, Stapp didn't sing that, Mark's guitar did, LOL

    Unresolved past lives and loves.

    Reminders of a sad youth.

    Reflections as in old age of lost associations.

    Memories of hard times and lost persons.
