DAVID WILCOX lyrics - Outside Door

DAVID WILCOX
"Outside Door"

My movie house it holds me prisoner
All boarded up on a dead end street
In my darkest doubts I'm the only visitor
Sunk down inside those dusty seats

This world of mine in two dimensions
It shocks my brain with all I feel
That flickering lie will build the tension
And I brace for pain like it was real

I can't stop the scene from playing
Trying ain't worth dying for
It won't change, but I'm not staying
I just found the outside door

The old film that rolls, I know the story
For all my years it's been the same
I'll see my old moment of glory
Fall to my fear and find my shame

It leaves my heart empty and shallow
No happy end and no relief
In that endless dark my cave of shadows
I still suspend my disbelief

Standing in the morning wonder
Never seen the sun before
Broke the spell that I was under
I just found the outside door

There's no silver screen no satin curtain
My state of mind plays this whole show
The illusion seems to be so certain
That I'm trapped inside with nowhere to go

Inside my war with dark projection
I try to scream but have no voice
There is a door an outside exit
We can be free we have a choice
