lyrics

“Looking Glass”
© 2010 C. Rose

you’ve been walking through fields of gray alone
wondering where the air has gone.
it has been at least one hundred years
that you have lived inside the fear
lost and suffocating.

seems like another life ago
that you tripped and fell down the rabbit hole.
battling demons from your past
now you found your way back to the looking glass.
step through, and everything is waiting.

you have looked into the dragon’s eye
through with finding places you can hide.
we’ve been sending messages inside.
telegraph your morse code in reply
and i feel the wires shaking.

you can live outside the fear.
believe.
But I can’t be the first one here
to breathe.
a heart can beat inside of there.
you must only taste the air
to mend a soul in disrepair and need.

seems like another life ago (i can hear you)
that you were tripped and fell down the rabbit hole
(i have seen you) conquering demons from your past
(and i know you) finally found your way back to the looking glass.
step through, and everything is changing.
