lyrics

Back here in my bedroom
I am sitting, waiting for my princess to come
And if she doesn't, I'll just sit here
Wishing, waiting, wondering what to expect from you
What is it you want me to do
Why do you look at me that way
Is there something I'm not seeing

King of my own castle
I'm the one who calls the shots
I make the rules that you abide by
It's so unnerving how this crumbles when I know that

I'm the only one who lives inside this fantasy world
Which shatters at your call
But all in all, I guess it's not that bad

Brittle, frail, and lonely
I can see how much this means to one like you
When all my sense dull to pain, dull to life, dull to the game
Where I am king and you're my servant
And the backyard is my land
And I rule with an iron fist,
I make you hate me, just like they do
Pushing on, pressing in, I try to run when I know that

I'm the only one who lives inside this fantasy world
Which shatters at your call
But all in all, I guess it's not that bad

Sometimes, I wish I could tear the walls down
That keep you out and hold me in
But in my alabaster castle
I am crying, wishing, wanting, tearing at my skin
So I can show you who I really am

I'm the only one who lives inside this fantasy world
Which shatters at your call
But all in all, I guess it's not that bad
And I'm the only one who lives inside this fantasy world
Which shatters at your call
But all in all, I guess it's not that bad

Desperate, hurting, scratching
You hold onto a piece of me that you're torn
From where I'm hurting, where I'm bleeding
Hoping you will let me go
Let me go, let me go, let me go, please let me go
