He's afraid of the constant arrival of daylight
And the awkward situations of everyday life
He sweats when he's asked a question
After the first few hundred times he learned his lesson

And he says the world is scary
Just like the trek it takes to get beyond a pretty woman's blouse
So he stays locked inside his old decrepit house

And he has a broken kitchen sink that he needs take apart
But he's afraid he'll break it more so he's afraid to even start
His toilet won't flush so he never seems to go
He never has guests so he watches the dust grow

And he says his house is scary
It's where his wife and kids would play but now it represents gloom
So he stays locked inside his house inside his lonely bedroom

And he says he locks his door at all times just to be safe
But he knows death will find you no matter the time or place
And he keeps the light on to control the time of day
He can't decide where to go so he decides just to stay

But he says his room is scary
His memories still haunt him all of the time
So he stays locked inside his mind, inside his room, inside his house

But he says his mind is scary
From all the things that it carries
And it carries him away
And it carries him away
And it carries him away
And it carries him away
