The Birthday Massacre – Looking Glass lyrics

Waiting as I'm wanting to.
Speaking as I'm spoken to.
Changing to your point of view.
Fading as I follow you.

A boyish notion of false emotion.
These words are spoken despite my love.
A fool's devotion was set in motion.
My eyes are open now.

It's a glass cage so I can't pretend.
You hide beneath the physical.
I see it coming.
But I can't defend.
You cut so deep,
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is...

Tell me what I want to say.
Save me for another day.
Break me, it's the game you play.
Hate me as I turn away.

A boyish notion of false emotion.
These words are spoken despite my love.
A fool's devotion was set in motion.
My eyes are open now.

It's a glass cage so I can't pretend.
You hide beneath the physical.
I see it coming.
But I can't defend.
You cut so deep,
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is...

It's a glass cage so I can't pretend.
You hide beneath the physical.
I see it coming.
But I can't defend.
You cut so deep,
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is gone.
My belief is...

    I'm not sure but I think that because of the video I. E. The masks, numbers and uniforms I think that the meaning is somewhere along the lines of people being pressured into think what other people want them to. The masks meaning that their putting on a show and the numbers meaning that they've had their individuality has been taken away. Also I think that maybe the focus is on someone you trust not necessarily a love or a teacher but someone important breaking that trust and now they find it hard to belief in anything, not just love, because they felt so certain about that person.

    It is society. People hide and mask thier feelings and cannot stand to live wothout thier facade. Some people are unable to fit the mold created by the mask. The singer realizes that society is fully based on the full facade in which most people live without knowing. When the masks are broken the true feelings are shown but, people just hide them along with thier faces. With in society everyone feels like they know or understand someone but, in actality they know nothing about many of the people that they see and talk with everyday. Many people hide thier feelings as well causing emotions to run rampid through the minds of everyone to the point that it is normal to have feelings in the mind at all times.

    I think this songs about how because we lost our spiritual difference we wear the same mask that hides who we really are,.
    The darkness of evilest eyes that hide in the shadows beneath the physical in the 2nd dimention of well shadow hateing as each person that thinks outside the box realizes the senseless unreal emotion and walks away from the trap of the illusion of "reality" my belief in god is gone for their is so much more than what beholds my eyes in this old worn book before me.

    I think it's about a girl, maybe she is singing about a person she loves or someone she trust. Basing in the video, this person is a man. He tries to control her, to make her just a copy of "normality" and she knew it, she was trying to scape from everything but, fortunately, she opened her eyes and eventhough everything that she believed in, was gone, she didn't continue allowing that.

    I think it's about the singer being in love with someone. And she wants him to love her so much that she changes her personality and loses herself in the prosess. But she realises that he doesn't mean anything he says, and opens her eyes to the fact that he doesn't love her. And it "cuts her deep" because inside she could see that it would turn out as a bad relationship.
    But I think we see the meaning of lyrics in a personal way, like how they personally relate to a situation we've been in.
