#1
The single room I live in, the time I've given
The nails she's driven into my skin
She feels the fire climbing higher
Engulfed in flames, this place I'm in

It's taken ages to fill these pages
With the words I've heard from behind the walls
The door won't open, but he's still hoping
It's just a dream, every time he falls

For the radiating glow on your face when you're awake
I end up paranoid and low every time I hear her say
It kills me not to know which direction I should take
If I wanna stay one more day
Just to say it'll be okay

There's a monster under the bed I sleep in
I can't reason with my mind
I hear it breathing, keep from screaming
I can't move, feeling paralyzed

By the radiating glow on your face when you're awake
I end up paranoid and low every time I hear her say
It kills me not to know which direction I should take
If I wanna stay one more day
Just to say it'll be okay
