The monster's in the attic and the hell is in your head
The bones are in the closet as you hide under your bed
It's where you fled
Your head is full of knowledge of the world beyond your eyes
Though your lids and lashes coated with the paint from our past lives
Now all you feel is that paint dry

Dry your eyes
It isn't worth putting on a disguise
Not this time

Your eyes are full of colors that I thought I'd never see
Your warming, hooded presence is all I'll ever need
You're the greatest company
You try your very hardest to cover up your tracks
To hide from painted memories that attempt to hold you back
Now all you feel is that paint crack

Dry your eyes
It isn't worth putting on a disguise
Not this time
Dry your eyes
It isn't worth putting on a disguise
Not this time
