The walls in this room crowd me

With old dreams all ‘round

You’d think it’d make me feel good

But I’m about to drown


The pictures tell the stories

Of a bright hopeful past

Not everyone ends up happy

Not everything can last


Chorus:

I don’t want to be angry

I don’t want to be sore

My heart is heavy and listless

But my head is fighting a war

Can’t sit here any longer

What am I waiting for

Oh, where’s the door, where’s the door

I’m on my way out, where’s the door


There’s boxes and more boxes

But there’s nothing here I want

I’ll find strength in myself

Don’t need nothin’ to lean on

And people are just people

We do what we think we can

Maybe I’ll live more in the light

Before the hourglass runs out of sand


Chorus:

I don’t want to be angry

I don’t want to be sore

My heart is heavy and listless

But my head is fighting a war

Can’t sit here any longer

What am I waiting for

Oh, where’s the door, where’s the door

I’m on my way out, where’s the door


Bridge:

I stand up to go

With memories hanging in the air

But silence is the only occupant now

Except for the squeak in the stairs


Repeat chorus​
