lyrics

If I wanted to get out of here,
Don't you think I'd have
Come up with an escape plan by now?

‘Cause I've been in this lair too damn long
With no purpose
Don't need to see the light of day

Truly, there's no better way
To rot away
Than waiting inside these four walls

When I could remember the outside
There was nothing
Don't need to see the light of day

Fallin’ back on hiding
Floors of sand
Only support trees with
Sleight of hand

Truly, there's no better way
To rot away
Than waiting inside these four walls

When I could remember the outside
There was nothing
I let my mind just fade away

Fallin’ back on hiding
Floors of sand
Only support trees with
Sleight of hand

Caught in a cold lair
Between here and there
You could stop and stare stare stare
Straight into thin air
Caught in a cold lair
Between here and there
You could stop and stare stare stare
Straight into thin air

If I wanted to get out of here,
Don't you think I'd have
Come up with an escape plan by now?

‘Cause I've been in this lair too damn long
With no purpose
Don't need to see the light of day

Truly, there's no better way
To rot away
Than waiting inside these four walls

When I could remember the outside
There was nothing
I let my mind just fade away

Fallin’ back on hiding
Floors of sand
Only support trees with
Sleight of hand

So stand up with your neck straight
Not gravitized
Don't be afraid to start the roar
The roar...
