I close the door so many times
and I can’t help but think as the hour bell chimes
the reason why I lock the door
is it what’s inside the outside or more
people often argue that I close the door to hide
but no one ever comes to so what lurks inside
no one really knows why we close the door
yet no one’s ever thought to ask someone before
and now I finally say what secretly lurks behind
it’s a dark and dangerous place and that place has always been mine
