Walls

from by War Jacket

lyrics

As I wait outside your door
I hear you crying your throat is sore
and the hole down the hall
is the hole inside my heart
just busting through the drywall
just trying to break the dark

I thought the walls were outside
I thought the walls were outside
I thought the walls were outside
but you built them into my body

I feel like a camera above the scene
trying to find an angle
trying to find a meaning
I had a dream that you would die and I would live
So I left my place of safety and held you like a kid

I thought the walls were outside
I thought the walls were outside
I thought the walls were outside
but you built them into my body

We found our place in movie screens
Where nothing can’t be solved in the final scene

And I can’t go back
Can’t escape
All these walls
