and there's no excuse now
when you shut people out
you also shut yourself in.
you're haunted by the wolves your twisted mind creates
and they're coming after you
but you have no defense now
you're locked inside your head.
the only weapons within your reach are the ones that you shut out
and your friends cannot help you
you're going to have to break out
to let down your guard and be honest.
backed up against the walls you thought protected you
and now it is time
to let the beasts melt away
in the warmth of the sun
don't shut yourself in
don't shut your friends out
