And I'm the only one with the hammer to break this shell I'm in
It's gonna take me crackin' this mirror to finally be myself again

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis – Life Is Cinema Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He has turned into someone he doesn’t know, and is ready to break out of that shell and be the REAL Ben Haggerty.

Reminds me of Rick Springfield smashing the mirror with his guitar in “Jesse’s Girl” video… talk about epic!
