Growing up, every child has dreams of what they would like their life to be.  Time changes those dreams over and over, until looking back across the years, it is hard to even remember that perspective where everything was imaginable.  Too often adults have lost all their dreams beyond hitting the lottery, when our increased experience should instead have enlarged our dreams to more nearly approach the endless vision God has for our lives.

This song ties to it's counterpoint, Mirror My Old Enemy & Friend, in that I find both good and evil, fear and joy, inside myself.  I am, as a song says, a "deepest admixture of life and death, the need of vacuum to draw each breath."  On another level, this song is a view of the past, questioning what became of that past person, in contrast to Mirror My Old Enemy & Friend's confrontation with the answer of his present.

It's not uncommon to ask whatever happened to someone we used to know.  Here this is somewhat stood on it's head to make a point.  Accurate self perception is far more difficult to achieve than one might imagine.

"Did he look inside" to face the Magic Mirror Gate (seen in the movie, The Neverending Story) where the great trial is seeing yourself as you really are?

"Laughs still cut right through him" ties forward to Lonely Flame on the Personal God album.

"Slave" ties back to Marionette Minuet on the Predator album, in that sinners are slaves to sin.  Further, in our age, sin is treated as something of no consequence instead of the reality of it being of eternal consequence.

"Weave" is the unity that is the theme of the entire The Quest To Be Whole series.

The self is no illusion, even though it takes many years to learn how to handle a mirror.
