02. Mirrors

Well Meaning Fiction
by Mainstay


Decide nothing
I depend for everything
You don't need me
You don't need anything

Remedies were bankrupt like the rest of these

Forget what they told you - there's no self-help
Taken by Your glory - don't look back now

I don't care who I am, I lost that interest
There are no mirrors deep enough to meet my needs

Behind the Song:
"Like much of this record, this song is aimed at showing Christians that many of the answers we are getting to our problems today are man-centered and ineffective when dealing with problems of sin, depression, and self-worth. Pop psychology has infiltrated the church so much that we forget that the ultimate end of man is not to feel good about one's self or focus on finding who we are, but rather to be "taken by God's glory" and lose interest in our worth, self-esteem, or value. That is the theme that this song tackles - The way for believers to be happy and feel valuable is to value God supremely and reject any notions of "self-help." If man is truly dead in trespasses and sins, the term "self-help" is ridiculous. We need Christ to redeem us from our sin, and find our value in His saving work on the cross. Instead of looking in the mirror and treasuring the good in us, we need to be transfixed on Christ and treasuring and savoring the ultimate good - and rejoicing in the fact that He imparts HIS righteousness to us, undeserving as we are. - Justin Anderson (Mainstay)
