Lyrics
The eyes, looking so cold
Condemn failure
And seek for perfection
will never be attained

They're judging the denying face which stares back
A bewildered revelation

Show me objectivity
And let these eyes judge again

You cannot touch what you can't ever obtain
I'm inexhaustible
As well as empty in my bitter search

My words are yours,
my voice speaks for your thoughts
I am your mirror without remorse,
your reflection without doubts

I fall and fall
I must learn from the bruises
The scars will be my guide

There's no excuse in ignorance
No time for weakness or regret
Face your mirror without doubt
Your reflection without remorse

If knowledge was wisdom
And wisdom the key to inner rest
Teach me...
