lyrics

So this is how it feels when the world ends
Something dies and is born again
You think you know yourself, but do you?

Should I stay silent, or be condemned?
This is how it feels when the world ends
Can you fathom the darkness inside of you?

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Shades of grey, nothing's carved in stone
Suffer in silence or be alone
Why can't I have my cake and eat it too?

Always different, always on the outside
And now I know the reason why
What would they all say if they only knew?

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Will they abandon me? Will they take me in?
Society will punish me for my sin
But how can it be sin if I don't hurt anyone?

The fear imprisons me; I live in a cage
I've got to be brave, but I can't give in to rage
I watch the fabric of my world as it comes undone

Shadows of silence haunting me through the night
And yet, within my shell, my soul takes flight
And believe me, World, I really had no choice

The secret deep within asphyxiates me
I've got to let it out, I've got to be free
And someone, somewhere, has got to hear my voice!

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Mother, father, I cannot be
Whatever it is that you want me to be
I wish that you could understand, I wish that you could say
"It's all right, sweetheart, we love you anyway"
But I know I can't expect what will never be
And all that I can hope is that you'll still care for me
So if this is farewell, I guess I'll say goodbye
And face the world with hope, and my battle cry
Someone's got to take the chance, and say it loud,
"I'm young, gay, and proud!"

CHORUS

So this is how it feels when the world ends
Something dies and is born again
You think you know yourself, but do you?

Well, I'm not silent, and I've been condemned
But maybe someday all this pain will end
Courage, patience, and faith will see us through

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror

Take a look at your face
It will be replaced
This is the other side of the mirror
