lyrics

You made a prison for yourself
Made simply from your fears
The bars that hold you back
Aren't as thick as they appear
If you really wanted to, anytime
You could leave
The chains that bind you down aren't as strong
As you believe

You say this world's too cruel, you don't want any part
How do I make you realize that you're killing your own heart?
It's you who's holding the key to unlock your cell
And set yourself free

You sit in your dusty room
And keep the curtains closed
Every night is filled with bad dreams
Nightmares of the unknown
Like She, the tragic figure in a story
That you once read
You've resigned to being captive but the truth is
It's all in your head

You say this world's too cruel, you don't want any part
How do I make you realize that you're killing your own heart?
It's you who's holding the key to unlock your cell
And set yourself free

You don't don't don't let anyone in
You don't don't don't let anyone in
Oh you don't don't don't let anyone in
Oh you don't don't don't let anyone in

You say this world's too cruel, you don't want any part
How do I make you realize that you're killing your own heart?
It's you who's holding the key to unlock your cell
And set yourself free
She don't don't don't let anyone in
