09. House Of Mirrors

The Light Meets The Dark
by Tenth Avenue North



 

You can’t seem to see past your own reflection
Caught up in the halls of your introspection
And you’re staring at your mirror on the wall
Asking “who is the fairest of them all?”
‘Cause Lord I know, it’s not me
If only you could see
That you’ve already been set free

Well come on, come on
Let’s throw our mirrors down
Yeah come on, come on
Let’s shatter the glass on the ground

Well you say “hold on, if I could just try this one thing.
Well I know I can change and that would change everything”
But a house made of mirrors never helped you see any clearer
It’s yourself you can’t see past
And Lord, isn’t that just like me?
If only we could see, that He’s already set us free

Well come on, come on
Let’s throw our mirrors down
Yeah come on, come on
Let’s shatter the glass on the ground

Oh, oh
Freedom’s waiting for you now
So come on, come on
And throw your mirrors down

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

Well come on, come on
Let’s throw our mirrors down
Yeah come on, come on
Let’s shatter the glass on the ground
Freedom’s waiting for you now
So come on, come on and throw your mirrors down



Behind the Song:
“‘House Of Mirrors’ 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 don’t have the liberty to do that because we just don’t have the time. So it was actually a luxury to sit down and do that together. The song says ‘Man is made for mountains, not for mirrors.’ It’s 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 we’re stuck in a house that is full of mirrors. We’re 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 that’s the only way you have to see how magnificent and huge God is.” (Jason Jamison)

“The 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 that’s something that I feel like I’m just now really getting.” (Mike Donehey) -- Tenth Avenue North
