Lil Wayne: Mirror Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2011
With everything happening today..
You don't know whether your coming or going but..
You think that your on your way
Life lined up on the mirror don't blow it..
Look at me when I'm talking to you..

This song is saying that he struggles with being misunderstood. He feels like nobody can really feel his pain and struggles but him. He knows that success brings friends that aren't real. The deepest part in the song is that he says he's his only friend. Lonely and craving real love from his soul mate.

No you guys are wrong. There is no drug reference. Lil Wayne is trying to say that the only person he knows and can trust is his reflection in the mirror (himself).

Lol yeah this song has illuminati symbols like da 666 open sign,bt thn he closes it ... No mre evil. He's gvng the middle finger 2 evil. Mirrors r thre 4 demons 2 pass thru , so y is he covering it wit paint. Then thres a painting of hm caught in hell. Then he poses the same way 2 symbolise he's free of illuminati. Ths thing of tunechis leaving illuminati is actuali the reason 4 da beef wit jay Z. The song is actuali abt God ... He saying that God was always ther 4 hm. Y duz he say " I c da change,I c da message so I'm starting wit da man in da mirror" he is sayng he is gng 2 change. He evn announced in hs mtv unpluggd concert tht he believes in God.

as you can see he is painting with red black and white... Black-fear, evil, unhappiness, depth, style, evil, sadness, remorse, anger..
White-Reverence, purity, birth, simplicity, cleanliness, peace, humility, precision, innocence, youth, winter, snow, good, sterility, marriage.. Red-Excitement, energy, passion, love, desire, speed, strength, power, heat, aggression, danger, fire, blood, war, violence, all things intense and passionate.. what im getting at is that the colors tell the story and wayne explains it..wayne begins with the color Red he is spilling his blood the way christ did on the cross.. then he uses Black he is tired of being evil and angry and he feels like he is becoming his dad.. the white he want to make himself pure and clean and happy.. at the end of the video he drops his red flag and when your in a crew you dont drop your flag unless your wanting to get jumped out of your crew so i think hes being done with the gang life

this is not talking about the 666 sign and he is NOT talking to fing god. he is sorry for what he sings and he wants to let us know wht he really thinks of him self.

I think he's talking to himself or his significant other, Girlfriend, as in they both know where they went wrong.On the other hand it could be him talking to himself recognizing himself.

a lot can really be token out of this at first thought it was about the illuminati period but you have to take that upon your own understanding and pray abt it !! all great opinions.. and that makes since but look and determine for yourself

Can somebody please tell me your interpretation of this:
I see the truth in your lies
I see nobody by your side
but I’m with you when you re all alone
And you correct me when Im lookin wrong
I see that guilt beneath the shame
I see your soul through your window pain
I see the scars that remain
I see you Wayne, Im lookin at the..
I have to write something about this for school but I dont understand this part..
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Wayne talks about the devil his drawn on the mirror saying the devil is his only friend so on an so forth,each time he refers to the mirror image his talking about the devil he sold his to...remember if you sell your soul that spirit possess you..that's what he sees when he looks in the mirror. oh and yes demons are summoned by looking your self in the mirror and calling out they names..reference the satenic bible

NO, even the people saying Y'all know the truth and everybody dumb and blind...Y'all don't even know the truth. This nigga Wayne about to pass away, the picture at the end is tupac, Michael Jackson, biggie and Whitney. And Wayne is in the back ground behind all of them with just his back turned. He's painting pictures of how the Illuminati trying to fuck the world up more each day,instead of telling like MJ and Tupac did. He don't want the devil to have his soul no more, he wanna turn around. He feel like he has to crucify him self to redeem his self from his sins smh. The devil first tricked Adam Nd Eve, and now he's using and tricking a lot more. Smh

It means that he's misunderstood and he is angry that he looks like his dad and he learns from his mistakes.
anonymous Sep 12th, 2012 9:37am report
I think it is about he has made mistakes that people still judge him on and he wants to start a new life but the world won't let him.
Also I think it means the part where it says-I look just like my f dad- could mean that his dad made those same mistakes but he wants to change.
anonymous Sep 8th, 2012 9:07pm report
i think hes talking about god being his only friend. and in the begining he has tatoos saying 'fear God' and a cross in the middle. in the music video it shows him praying to God too.email me email@example.com
sneffysnef Sep 3rd, 2012 9:32pm report
in the begining he does show the the 666 and by the end look at the paintin and i believe has changed when he closin his eye towards the end it says god.. check out the paintin and watch the ending in pause on spots... also, i see him drop the red hanky, maybe meanin he wants to be out. the video and song r tellin 2 different stories i think..

K this is not about Satan. I back up the point made by anonymous that says it's actually about God. He makes many metaphors about his dark place and is now changing himself. He is in fact starting with dark evil imagery. And slowly those images transition out of the video. The reference to 'we' is him and his reflection, nor Satan or the illuminati. This is an inspirational song and if it was about something darker he wouldn't choose Bruno mars or reference bp who called him out on not working with mars in the past. On a side note, before you give an opinion please be educated enough to be able to spell

What's this shit about him talking to God. This song is definitely about Illuminati. These people keep playing with your fickle minds. God save this world amen

It is a song about a man who is afraid to face himself compare "looking good in broken mirrors" and "smoke in mirrors" the image of himself is blurred because he does not want to face himself...
... he is escaping into a distorted image of himself to escape the responsibility of fulfilling a specific life purpose "life lined up on a mirror do not blow it up",...
...he knows who he really is in the images of love in disguise and pain in the pride, but he is afraid to maybe look at the more positive or stronger aspects of his personality...
...And he knows that in order to accomplish this specific life purpose that was lined up by destiny he has to face himself to pull himself through to make it...
...The irony however lies in the fact that he says he was always there for himself when he was alone and no one was around, but it seems that he does not really want to be here for himself to draw on his inner strength resource to pull himself up and through, like he is surrendering to being weak and only having this distorted image of himself being a good for nothing human being...
There is however a positive image in the "you told me they would understand" as if he had faith in humanity, that they would love him, maybe somewhere deep he still has a passion for humanity to help them in some way in spite of him being down in the dumps at the moment...
...Maybe what he really needs to understand is that in spite of all the pain and struggles humanity put him through that it was just all a test, to see if he would still care in spite of all their flaws by recognizing his own flaws in them who disappointed him, for if he would hate them he would hate himself, but if he could still make a difference and believed he could he would love himself enough to love them.
It could be about finding perfection and some measure of peace in imperfections...if he is willing to accept the imperfections of those he has turned his back upon as that of himself, maybe he could stop being so hard on himself and others, and go into life a bit more light hearted, to go and shine like he was meant to do all along!

You guys do realize lil wayne is a christian right? he reads the bible all the time, and prays before shows...
so if anything this song is telling satan to fear god. or illuminati.
anonymous Jun 5th, 2012 6:50am report
i think he is trying to show that fame can bring fake friends who only want your money and cant be trusted so the only person wayne trusts is in the Mirror
