Minus The Bear - Into The Mirror Lyrics

They got a mirror full of caine in the bathroom
Cause nobody here knows when to stop
For now we're just making out with the door unlocked

Back in the atrium the music's slowing down
The party's thinning out for the late crowd
Fixes her lipstick fixes his belt
The coast is clear as he walks out

She whispers you get what you pay for
We could cost a lot
You get what you pay for
But we do it for the taste of a good high
We do it for the sake of a hot night

The man on the couch in the blue room
With everyone stoned and talking at once
With no thought to where they've been
What they could've done

She sits down beside him
Without a hint of shame
Cause every thing's the same in its own way
Kisses her man's cheek
Her hunter eyes lock on her prey

She signals you get what you pay for
And we could play a lot
You get what you pay for
But you do it for the taste of a good high
You do it for the sake of a hot night

She senses the fear in him
And an irresistible kiss and the
Lie she hangs on his neck like a silver chain to her whim
Pull him into the mirror again

She senses the lead in him
For irresistible kiss
And the lie that she hangs on his neck like a silver chain to her whim

There's a mirror full of caine in the bathroom
Cause nobody here knows when to stop
And their hands along the rail
Seems he hangs out here a lot

Minus The Bear Into The Mirror Comments
  1. heyhihellook

    I've loved this song for like 6 years and am just realizing it's about cocaine

  2. Matt W

    lyrics are nuts

  3. Black Rogue

    I always listen to this when I'm on the slopes. 😇

  4. Turtleproof

    Heather Duby's vocals in this song, unf.

    James Matthews

    I thought the same thing, but it's actually Rachel Flotard from Visqueen. I adore Heather Duby.

  5. Eric Carrillo

    There’s a mirror for the cain in the bathroom...

  6. kdoeone

    This song purrfectly depicts Pender harbor life.

  7. andy selby

    Song and music are great. Lead vocal and the way it's blended with such vibey music is shit. Greg Laswell does this trick MUCH better.

  8. This Reckless

    On repeat you will never know when to stop.

  9. cattleprodding

    Dat bass. Literally. The bass drum is kicking.


    At paul stevens inc.

  11. moose drool

  12. Oliver Neet

    Add a 🍐. Times a deer. Equals a cheer

  13. Stephen B

    I've seen them 10 times. Great family affair with my kids. We're going next week for their last show in ATL. Will miss them. Wish Erin Tate was playing with them again. One of the best drummers. All of them are fine musicians and clever lyricists.

  14. Ryan Eckman

    Diamond Lightning will always be my favorite... or maybe Ice Queen... oh shit what about Excuses... Absynthe Party... Fuck!!!

  15. Jeremy Willcox

    Josiah Clelland


  46. Joshua Vanwormer

    It's about people that are living fake. People just partying, lost, without direction. People looking for happiness in all the wrong places.

    d_rain_ged 79

    Just realized this song was about hookers. Hmmm . . . didn't realize that two years ago. Still awesome.

    Actual Trash

    +bubbathenaslover lmfao

    Memeingmy waythrulife

    correction , its about whores doing cocaine Lol. Take that L

    Joshua Howard

    Brett G correction its about plush toys and the ruff life they live in the daily basis. Are they gna get an arm taken off are they gna nit get played with anymore. Cause you get what you paid for a plush toy. But the plush toy isnt a toy at all it has feelings and fears.

    This Reckless

    Wicked Mouthed Sims yeah it is a really good song though.

  56. Pancoar

    Ah this song takes me back... Love it. Love the almost mournful sound in the melody and vocals.

    This Reckless

    Pancoar 5 years ago...

  57. TheGstar32

    Petit papa noel

  58. iAM jim

    believing that "something" didnt creat all this, and before it there was"nothing" is a little bit crazier..just saying

  59. iAM jim

    no youre just downright crazy

  60. iAM jim

    omni was fucking awesome what are you on?

  61. Scott Sherman

    Cats Are Hot

  62. Tony Starks

    I'll do things to this song with you!

  63. Hunter James II

    Too. Much. good

  64. Laurance Grube

    actually, no. we all die eventually and our souls walk the earth for eternity. stop it. science>things we're raised to believe.

  65. Renee Crawford

    I need a man so I can do things to this song

  66. Mosiah Tollestrup

    dope af!

  67. Anizeb

    How dare you? My cosmic teapot is forever.

  68. Cimmy Kyoka

    Anyone who believes /talks to invisible entitys are crazy.......

  70. fanofbadge

    Sometimes it's our biggest mistakes that make it clear that this music does us justice.
    I love the tunes, beats, synchs, vocals, lyrics,
    so fly!

  71. HeroicD23

    Music IS real. You are hearing it right now :) Listening is feeling

  72. James Franco

    daaaammit, the intro just gets me

  73. Darre Euphoria

    Hahaha the guy below me, his comment.. XD. Tis Darian approved.

  74. CthulhusDystopia

    We can't touch music but music can touch us.
    In the pants.

  75. Randi Savage

    Everyone needs to just stop giving a fuck and enjoy the song...

  76. samepurpose12

    do you know what this song even means? if you were a christian you would'nt be listening to this song. I don't blame you for listening to it since its a great song. : )

  77. Simon O'neill

    Believing in a sky spirit that created everything is just as crazy, just saying.

  78. Koni Ichise

    (Ohyeez) I remember the first time i played it on loop in our class room using imac, and t'was really loud :D (pabida song sa classmates habang wala si prof hha)

    i so love this song up to now. still prefer the loop playing :p

  79. Aiko Oller

    i just saw these guys with Circa survive, AMAZING show :D

  80. Sharik Carcamo

    This song is fucking awsome end....ok just listen to it

  81. pottery27

    Is this your fucking day job??? Preaching while people are trying to listen to a great tune??? I was raised religous but you are laughable and must have some serious problems. I've seen your crap on other MTB videos. Fucking religous stalker is what you are. Pathetic

  82. Michael Milazzo

    You coming on YouTube spamming your "faith" to everyone who will listen makes me wonder how strong you really are in your beliefs. Someone who truly believes what they preach doesn't need to justify those beliefs by yelling them to anyone who will listen.

  83. David Marino

    and worshipping a story-book character makes you guys look good. we're talking about apples and oranges here. christians are nut jobs anyway.

  84. Chris P. Bacon

    Jack Fraggie???

  85. LeBron James

    you have to be a little crazy to be christian. not too crazy, just a little bit.

  86. FuxUMuttZ

    @Xaqtly it wouldn't become a douchey song, but douchebags would start listening to mtb then

  87. lilymybaby

    I would so smash to this song ;)

  88. Kendall Thompson

    perfect band to listen to when you're toking up. or you know what's even better? Explosions in the Sky. Freaking magical.

    Mert Munson

    Finally!!! Somebody else realizes how phenomenal eits are! Saw them live years ago when they opened for nine inch nails in Pittsburgh. Liked them before that, was madly in love with them afterwards! All of I sudden I miss everyone is a masterpiece that few people know exist. Anyways, keep jamming.

  89. leijababe86

    this song is so amazing, makes me look at my life, and love every minute of it, Jake sounds incredible.

  90. Couch Sales Wolf Okami

    great song

  91. Mike Rotcherts

    because its not gonna make as much advertising revenue as other stuff. if youre serious you should first consider the types of people that are more susceptible to influence via adverts and then speculate about their tastes.

  92. Vostok

    You took one too many shrooms man.
