in the first light,
leaves of shadow
find your treasures
by your side.
No stain in your existence,
not a suspect veiling your self-esteem,
looking through the glass.
Hollow hours waiting for a trace,
a sign to follow endlessly.
Stillness blinds your consciousness,
you're wearing a hidden disguise.
Here you lie in this never-ending illusion,
no way to escape.
Slowly your thoughts twist inside your head,
revealing tension pervading your life in every day.
Now release your senses and begin to scan your memories.
You've lost your youth, lost your innocence,
can't you feel your reason falling down?
Every step sounding like the same,
in the mirror your disguise disappears.
In your gaze you find what you never supposed to be,
search for the truth deep within.
Dim the light and suddenly open your eyes,
touch the glass imprisoning your sight,
take care of every little break you perceive,
don't surrender to this hopeless dream
hanging over you.
Try to defy the lies overwhelming your mind,
force the bounds imposed on your will,
inside the gates of illusion don't stare
through the windows set along this wall
as it falls on you.
Now you rest in silence embraced in a quiet sleep,
the glass is broken,
you know there's a new chance to wake.
