The Other Side Of The Door

from by Sean Eldon



i don't know what i'm hearing
it's the faintest of the faintest
doesn't mean it ain't a thing to hear
maybe 'cos i spent something
like four or five straight days in here
don't check the mail or take out the trash
'cos that's when they getcha - hahaha
i really thought today would be the day
i'd put one over
stick it to the ever watchful eye
ideally i'd be strapping up my boots
and leave my head inside
stomach jumping upward when
i'm peaking through the peephole and
no sign of what i'm sure is there

and what if all this caution is nonsense
and the other side of the door is a wash
and what if i've been sitting inside
wasting away like one of those
and what if i found that the answers to the questions that i'm asking
were implied in the questions themselves
guess i'd feel pretty dumb over that
guess i'd reach for my tin foil hat and toss it away!
and i won't be a slave to me no more!
maybe i can free me from just sleepin' through a heinous fear!
and i won't be a slave to me no more!
