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 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 that's 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.

    This song to me means that either your in love with someone that doesn't love you or your in love with someone that you can't see, which to me happens a lot with me and my boyfriend. I love him to bits but when he was at download this song came on and now this song is mine and his, this song means the world to me and to alot of other people, make fun of them all you like, but to me and to other people this band rocks and no one can ever change that :)

    Sometimes looking through the glass at someone you don't get the true meaning. We all need to just stop fighting and show who we really are. I don't realy even know who I am yet but one day I might figure it out. I'm laughing on the outside and dying on the inside, so no one knows who I am either. I'm 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 what exactly I going on in your perpective. If somebody has a different opinion id like to here about it.

    This song is hard to figure it out. I don't agree with any of the meanings I've read soo far. But I can't come up with my own. It is a complicated song and I've though about it for hours, days even. My general idea though would be that he is singing to a person that has been on the outside of society for a long time: "I'm looking at you through the glass. Don't know how much time has passed." I think the glass is symbolic for socal boundries. "How do you feel? That is the question. But I forget you don't expect an easy awnser." I think from this, said person is going trough a hard time so they are isolating themselves from other people. "sitting all alone inside your head." This line also supports the isolation theory and how the person is thinking about their problem.
    That's all I have so far. If anyone can build on it, that would be nice.
