I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
Oh God it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

Cause I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
All I know is that it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

How do you feel?
That is the question
But I forget you don't expect an easy answer

When something like a soul becomes initialized
And folded up like paper dolls and little notes
You can't expect a bit of folks

So while you're outside looking in
Describing what you see
Remember what you're staring at is me

'Cause I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
All I know is that it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

How much is real?
So much to question
An epidemic of the mannequins
Contaminating everything

We thought came from the heart
But never did right from the start
Just listen to the noises
(No more sad voices)

Before you tell yourself
It's just a different scene
Remember it's just different from what you've seen

I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
And all I know is that it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

'Cause I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
And all I know is that it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

And it's the stars
The stars that shine for you
And it's the stars
The stars that lie to you, yeah ah
And it's the stars
The stars that shine for you
And it's the stars
The stars that lie to you, yeah ah

I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
Oh God it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

'Cause I'm looking at you through the glass
Don't know how much time has passed
All I know is that it feels like forever
But no one ever tells you that forever feels like home
Sitting all alone inside your head

And it's the stars
The stars that shine for you, yeah ah
And it's the stars
The stars that lie to you, yeah ah
And it's the stars
The stars that shine for you, yeah ah
And it's the stars
The stars that lie to you, yeah yeah

Oh when the stars
Oh when the stars they lie.

    I don't care what this song really means; it could mean all of those things or none of them. I just feel that it's just a powerful song in general that should have a lot more attention than it gets.

    If you want to know thr TRUE meening, find the REAL music video, instead of fighting about it. But I think it's about trying to see who a person really is, don't look AT them, look at WHO they are on the INSIDE. Through the glass is something you really don't see but yet you see it all.

    I personally believe its actually simpler than that, I may be wrong but I take it as being looked at as a celebrity "through glass" being a camera lense only seeing what youre told you see, and being told that youre supposed to be interesting and act a certain way because thats who you are to people. When really he wants to be seen as himself and not as the person that the camera says he is. Hince the phrase "how do you feel, that is the question, but I forget you dont expect an easy answer" I think Corey believes that Hollywood wants you to be who the camera glass and the people behind it tell you to be, not yourself.

    I'd have to agree with deeds on this. Then again mandap might have a point...oh well I think you both are right.

    Sometimes looking through the glass at someone you dont get the true meaning. We all need to just stop fighting and show who we really are. I dont realy even know who i am yet but one day i might figure it out. Im laughing on the outside and dying on the inside, so no one knows who i am either. Im fighting for what i love. And this song the part that says "im looking at you through the glass, dont know how much time has passed, all i know is that it feels like forever. And no one ever tells you that forever feels like home, sitting all alone inside your head" means that your being looked at from an angle that might not be real for you, and time passes so quickly well never be able to catch it. But then it feels like youre home and youre in your own head knowing wat exactly i going on in your perpective. If somebody has a different opinion id like to here about it
