I Smashed The Looking Glass es el Jamais Vu que experimentas cuando rompes con aquello que te mantenía lejos del piso, de manera tal que, al romper el paradigma social que significa la pretensión de celebridad, tan común en tiempos de medios colectivos y pastiches, por obligación encaras situaciones de las cuales permaneciste alienado.

Thematically, this song is a response to Kraftwerk’s classic ‘The Hall Of Mirrors’, which explored how an artist’s true self is distorted and eventually lost in the creation of an ideal persona. ‘I Smashed The Looking Glass’ is it’s spiritual sequel, exploring the artist’s escape from the trappings of such a persona, a significant challenge in an age of cult icons and social media performity.
Temáticamente, esta canción es una respuesta al clásico ‘The Hall Of Mirrors’ de Kraftwerk, que exploró cómo el verdadero yo de un artista se distorsiona y finalmente se pierde en la creación de una personalidad ideal. ‘I Smashed The Looking Glass’ es su secuela espiritual, que explora el escape del artista de las trampas de tal personaje, un desafío significativo en una era de íconos de culto y desempeño en las redes sociales.

Weimar, I Smashed The Looking Glass…

I stepped into the void of seduction
The road to stardom, the hall of fame
He stood there all mighty and proud
He said “Come and be like me, we’ll rock ’em live and loud”
I took his hand, stepped behind the glass
The currency of my soul traded for high class
“Be me and we’ll change the world together
I’ll remake you anew and the power’s all yours”

Years of loss, years of isolation
Delusions of grandeur, self-aggrandization
Years of exile on a self-made pedestal
I don’t know what happened in between

But I smashed the looking glass
I smashed the looking glass
And I don’t know what it was all about
But by a damned fine effort I broke out
I smashed the looking glass

The great artiste, extraordinaire supreme
“I’ll mould you in my image and fulfill your dreams”
As the image distorted so did the world outside
The world of the narcissist, the pool in which I’d hide
I was lost as he’d sucked me dry
Navigated the world with deaf ears and blind eyes
A numbed-out mind in the mirror of the damned

One of a billion victims of the same scam

Lived in the mirror with the echoes of myself
Exile of logic and mental health
As the scratches showed beneath the polished facade
There was only one way out

So I smashed the looking glass
I smashed the looking glass
And I don’t know where I go from here on
But it’ll beat the hell out of where I came from
I smashed the looking glass

And so I find myself alone
Trying to make my way home
Trying to brush away the dirt
Move past the lies, past the hurt

There’s a real world, I must get to know
What’s worth my time and what’s for show
Those mental dramas, that final crash
Ashes to ashes, trash for trash
Split personality, step outside
Which is Jekyll, which is Hyde
I’ll work it out as I leave behind
That final cracked reflection
In the shards of the looking glass

I smashed the looking glass
And I don’t know what it was all about
But by a damned fine effort I broke out
I smashed the looking glass
I smashed the looking glass
I smashed the looking glass
I smashed the looking glass
And I don’t know where I go from here on
But it’ll beat the hell out of where I came from
I smashed the looking glass
