These Walls Have Eyes

from Lakeside Cabin by The Creeps

/

lyrics

A train ride downtown on a rainy night
To high-rise mazes that look all alike.
And the bottle lied empty on its side and so did she,
With a far away look in her eyes.

And so she sympathized with those who chose suicide
Because she couldn’t hide and that fear just fucking paralyzed.
So the bottle lied empty on its side despite the pills
The pills that it described.

“These walls they have eyes. And they’re staring me down,” she said.
“They’re staring me down.”
“These walls they have eyes. And they’re staring me down,” she said.
“They’re wearing me all the way down.”

This dead-bolt security it feels more like a coffin than protection from the night.
And if dying has a look then it was in her eyes.
“Do you have to wear it on your sleeve?”
Then she replied, “why shouldn’t I?”
