In a room without windows In the company of shadows You know they won't forget you They'll take you in. Emotionally shattered, Don't ask if it mattered Don't let that upset you Just start again. In a world under glass You can watch the world pass And nobody can touch you You think you're safe. But the wind can blow cold, In the depths of your soul Where you think nothing can hurt you, Till its too late. Run till you drop, Do you know how to stop? The people walk right past you. You wave goodbye. And they all merely smiled, For you looked like a child, Never thought that they'd upset you, They saw you cry. In the war of your soul, You can't hear them at all, And the world becomes an echo Of what's left outside. But nobody can win, If you can't let them in And there's nobody to answer From that place where you hide. Take advice, don't question the experts. Don't think twice, you just might listen. Run and hide to the corners of your mind, alone, Like a Nobody Nowhere.
