09. House Of Mirrors

The Light Meets The Dark
by Tenth Avenue North



 

You canít seem to see past your own reflection
Caught up in the halls of your introspection
And youíre staring at your mirror on the wall
Asking ďwho is the fairest of them all?Ē
ĎCause Lord I know, itís not me
If only you could see
That youíve already been set free

Well come on, come on
Letís throw our mirrors down
Yeah come on, come on
Letís shatter the glass on the ground

Well you say ďhold on, if I could just try this one thing.
Well I know I can change and that would change everythingĒ
But a house made of mirrors never helped you see any clearer
Itís yourself you canít see past
And Lord, isnít that just like me?
If only we could see, that Heís already set us free

Well come on, come on
Letís throw our mirrors down
Yeah come on, come on
Letís shatter the glass on the ground

Oh, oh
Freedomís waiting for you now
So come on, come on
And throw your mirrors down

Come on, if youíre tired take a step outside
You might find that you can forget about yourself tonight
Oh, come on if youíre tired of failed attempts to try
Freedomís waiting when you look outside
Come on, if youíre tired take a step outside
You might find you can forget about yourself tonight
Yeah, come if youíre tired of your failed attempts to try
Freedom is waiting when you look outside

Well come on, come on
Letís throw our mirrors down
Yeah come on, come on
Letís shatter the glass on the ground
Freedomís waiting for you now
So come on, come on and throw your mirrors down



Behind the Song:
ďĎHouse Of Mirrorsí is actually the only song on the record that we wrote together as a band. We just kind of got in a room and sat down and just started creating music and Mike started writing lyrics on top of it. We donít have the liberty to do that because we just donít have the time. So it was actually a luxury to sit down and do that together. The song says ĎMan is made for mountains, not for mirrors.í Itís just the whole idea we have to get beyond ourselves and so often I find myself so consumed with my needs and my comforts and weíre stuck in a house that is full of mirrors. Weíre just constantly looking at ourselves. The song encourages us to throw our mirrors down, to break them and to get beyond ourselves, step outside of that house of mirrors and gaze on the beauty of Christ because really thatís the only way you have to see how magnificent and huge God is.Ē (Jason Jamison)

ďThe call of the gospel is not for me to think highly or lowly of myself. The call of the gospel is to stop thinking about myself all together and thatís something that I feel like Iím just now really getting.Ē (Mike Donehey) -- Tenth Avenue North
