Draw the Blinds

Draw the blinds
Lock the door
No one lives here anymore
The voices chanted
That I was alone
How could this head ever feel like home?

So turn the lights off
And close it down
I couldn’t stand to hang around
I spent my life
Building this place
Only for it to go to waste

I’m in need of
A change of interior
Something that won’t make me feel so inferior
Bargaining with my thoughts
Trading old for new
I know I did my best but there was nothing more to do

So turn the lights off
And close it down
I couldn’t stand to hang around
I spent my life
Building this place
Only for it to go to waste

I could leave this place
And give up on revival
Though the consequences may be my own survival
This brain of mine
Has done so much damage
This haunted skull is too much to manage
So I’ll pack my bags
And run far away
This mind is not a home in which I can stay

So turn the lights off
And close it down
I couldn’t stand to hang around
I spent my life
Building this place
Only for it to go to waste
