Statements made as I’m enclosed
World shut off, mind exposed
Contemplating each minute
Stepped away, desolate

Unsure of my exiting
Barren and unsettling

I have done this through and through
Now I know just what to do

One – You must escape the crowd
Two – You cannot make a sound
Three – Hurry and isolate
Four – Ideas you generate

In the planning room

Close the door, draw the line
Buying up such little time
Thinking hard and thinking tense
Rising level of suspense

Planet smaller than you think
The whole world begins to shrink

Will not fake acquaintances
Hollow cold relationships

You wonder how you are awake
It seems you never get a break
You will plan out your own escape
This option not up for debate
So concentrate

Passages that keep us safe
Slip away, segregate
Covert by no other choice
Exit room, now rejoice

Last place that you want to be
Regular society

Solitary destiny
Sealed off from conformity

Shut. Out.
