      Theocracy - Mirror of Souls Música y Letra

      Listen to the tale I tell
      a haunting dream I know so well
      When walking home alone one night
      my path revealed by candlelight
      Ahead I see an open door
      with no idea what's in store
      I glance inside the door to see
      a hall of mirrors beckons me
      I take a breath and step inside
      a tale of love and shattered pride
      The door slams shut, I start to run
      And it seems my journey has begun...
      
      I run and turn from side to side
      with fear and panic in my eyes
      The vastness overwhelming me
      mirrors far as the eye can see
      I see myself in every one
      I see the things that I have done
      A thousand forms of flattery
      the fear soon turns to haughtiness in me
      
      Different mirrors, different shapes
      my different strengths accentuate
      Each mirror has a name and face
      and all reflect me in some way
      I look at them to see myself
      to judge my life by someone else
      The metaphors within replete:
      the mirrors are the people that I met
      
      Look at the man you see - in the mirrors
      The things you can be - in the mirrors
      The glory of me revealed in the mirror's eye
      The mirror never lies
      The fire in my eyes - in the mirrors
      The vanity rise - in the mirrors
      The power of pride comes alive in the mirrors
      
      Gazing in the mirrors I behold
      All the greatest chapters of my story ever told
      In the mirrors
      The world is turned to gold
      
      [Orchestral section]
      
      At the end of the Hall of Mirrors
      I behold a golden door
      I imagine all the beauty
      the other side must hold in store
      So I quickly reach out my hand
      To enter the next room in this promised land
      I pull the giant door open
      To continue my journey, I step inside
      But it slams shut behind me, and I'm back outside
      The pouring rain welcomes me
      into the arms of the coldest, blackest night
      
      [II. The Stranger In The Storm]
      
      The light of the mirrors has faded away
      into distant memory
      As the rain keeps coming down
      My candle extinguished
      I struggle to walk a path I cannot see
      And the rain keeps coming down
      
      The darkness grows with every step
      I could cut it with a knife
      As the rain keeps coming down
      I can't see a thing and I've never felt
      so alone in all my life
      But the rain keeps coming down...
      
      Caught in the fury of the storm
      (The darkness suffocates)
      Body and soul weary and worn
      (Another twist of fate)
      Never been so afraid before
      (The ending of this tale?)
      Never should have opened the door
      (From euphoria to hell)
      
      I question my fate, my end
      to die in this storm
      Maybe this was the plan
      back from the day I was born
      But in the hall of mirrors I had felt so high
      I cannot walk another mile in this flood
      So resigned to my fate, I just collapse in the mud
      If I cannot go on, I'll just lay down and die
      
      Suddenly a light I see, shining in the distance
      I make my way toward it with my fading hope reborn
      As I draw near, the light is clear
      Though the rain beats its resistance
      But I press on and pray this is a shelter from the storm
      Advancing now toward the light
      I'm quickly moving forward
      This hope has given me new strength
      I thought I'd never know
      But I take a step, and fall right back
      For the ground's gone beneath me
      And I behold, illuminated in the light's warm glow
      A dark chasm, a great abyss
      A vast expanse of nothingness
      A pit that has no bottom as far as the eye can see
      It spans the whole horizon, and there is no way across
      My lonely heart is shattered and all hope I had is lost
      
      I'm startled to feel a hand on my shoulder
      I turn to see a shadowed figure standing in the rain
      But somehow I'm not afraid of him
      Even when he speaks my name
      And somehow I can tell that he means me no harm
      Just by the peace that I see in his eyes
      And even though I've never even seen him before
      It's like he's known me all my life
      "Why are you crying?" the stranger asks
      As I wipe away the tears
      I point toward the great abyss
      The source of all my fears
      
      "I must get across and get to that light
      For it represents my only hope tonight
      But when I saw the chasm, all that hope was lost
      I've spent so long in the dark and the rain
      That the sight of the light made my heart sing again
      But the gulf's so wide, and there's no way across"
      
      The stranger smiled, and took my hand
      He said, "But you are wrong, my friend
      You cannot cross the gulf yourself, that's true"
      He led me down toward the edge
      And pointed just over the ledge
      And said, "Behold, I built a bridge for you"
      
      [Solo]
      
      I cross the bridge toward the light
      The stranger saved my life tonight
      I turn to try to thank him, but he's gone
      A long way to the other side
      I'll make my way without my guide
      No time to waste, for I must carry on
      
      The bright light shines forth from behind
      A door beyond description
      Blood and scratches mark the door from ages of abuse
      I'm confused no more, for above the door
      Is a weathered, old inscription
      "All who would see reality, enter the Hall of Truth"
      And so I do
      
      [III. The Truth Revealed]
      
      As I step inside
      I can see another mirror
      A mirror so bright
      That my eyes must turn away
      A mirror so high
      I start to question all the others
      And as I stand there in the Hall of Truth
      my heart can only say:
      "Show me the truth, I don't know what to believe
      For the mirrors all showed something different to me
      And my pride has given way to misery
      I've spent so long in the dark and the rain
      That the sight of the light made my heart sing again
      And the stranger built a bridge across for me"
      
      "BEHOLD THYSELF" a voice rings out
      in paralyzing thunder
      It echoes all throughout the hall
      and sends me to my knees
      When the voice calls my name
      I'm overcome with fear and wonder
      
      As I slowly start to rise
      and face the great mirror in front of me
      When I open my eyes, I have to close them again
      But still the image is burned into my mind...
      A face with eyes as black as night
      A terrifying sight
      The flesh rotting away in sickness and decay
      It's mangled by disease
      I'm unable to breathe
      Tell me what manner of creature this could be
      'Cause it's not me
      
      I run away as fast as my feet will carry me
      Back to the door leading into the night
      Even the storm that almost claimed my life
      was better than this
      And so I throw open the door and see a man
      (The figure of a man)
      The stranger from the storm returns again
      (To save me once again?)
      I see understanding in his eyes
      (He's seen this all before)
      Maybe he can tell me what I saw behind that door
      
      "Tell me what I saw in the mirror
      Before I ran away
      Tell me what I saw in the mirror
      That face of sickness and decay
      Tell me what I saw in the mirror
      That left me terrorized
      With the lifeless, blackened eyes?
      Was it a demon
      From the fiery waves?
      Was it the undead
      From beyond the grave?
      Oh the face that I beheld in the mirror
      left me paralyzed
      Won't you tell me what I saw
      in the mirror on this night?"
      
      "The light from the mirror you saw from afar
      The Mirror of Souls shows all men as they are
      You entered the hall and you asked for the truth
      The man that you saw in the mirror was you"
      
      "No! Don't show me the truth
      'cause I don't want to believe
      What the Mirror of Souls
      has revealed unto me
      And the face I saw reflected cannot be me
      Dying and lost in the arms of decay
      I do not recognize the face I've seen today
      And if you say that's my face I must disagree"
      
      The meaning of these things I saw:
      The mirror is the holy eyes of God
      The truth unveiled before me
      with these words of the stranger:
      "The mirrors you saw in the hall long ago
      Were mirrors of lies, not reflecting the soul
      When you look unto others to see what they see
      You see an illusion, deception, false reality"
      
      I have seen my soul in the mirror
      And it has broken me
      I have seen myself so much clearer
      Than I had ever seen
      "Can't you take away all this sickness
      from my soul and set me free?
      You can save me...I believe"
      And then he said, "Arise, my child
      our faith has made you reconciled
      Now gaze into the Mirror once again"
      We walked together through the door
      And I looked in the glass once more
      But the only one reflected back was him
      Somehow the only one in the mirror saw was him
      
      Gazing in the Mirror of my Soul
      Staring at the man who took my place
      and made me whole
      In the Mirror
      The Mirror of my Soul
