Lyrics

Analysis based directly on this song's
1-line summary
These lyrics are about the realization that someone is not who they seem to be and the need to look beyond the surface to see the real person.
proposed artworks
A solitary figure sits on the ground, back against a dimly lit, fog-shrouded exterior wall, head bowed in contemplation. The scene is desolate, embodying a sense of isolation. Through a nearby window, another figure is visible, their features obscured and distorted as if through frosted glass, hinting at hidden depths and unseen truths. The colors are muted, with cold blues and grays dominating, save for a faint, warm light emanating from the window, symbolizing hope and the quest for understanding amidst despair. Shattered pieces of a mirror lie scattered around, reflecting fragmented images of both figures, suggesting introspection and the search for one's true self.
