lyrics

I'm building walls around
the people that I love
They used to be of paper,
now I barely hear them talk

I know they're safe and sound
with roofs above their heads
I reach to knock that door
but I can't raise my hand

On these walls the pictures tell it all

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
It's hard to stop my heart
when it's beating out my chest

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
There's nothing to protect
When I finally hit my stride
I won't pretend

I'm walking with both hands
tied behind my back
I'm sick of being overwhelmed
And open to attack

I can't be still, I have to move
To keep my heart from stopping here

I keep my mind so occupied
there's barely room for thoughts at all

On these walls the pictures tell it all

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
It's hard to stop my heart
when it's beating out my chest

Take the pictures from my walls
Their eyes are burning holes
There's nothing to protect
When I finally hit my stride
I won't pretend

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes

I close my eyes
Protect me from these walls
I close my eyes

When I find the awful truth
I can leave it all behind
I'll be the fading imagery
When you finally close your eyes
