i live behind these headphones
what else is there to hear?
this is my window to where i feel at home
between these headphones becomes clear
because when they come off all i know is fear
stress and failure and friends that dont care

i live behind these headphones
so that i alone can hear my thoughts
the millions of questions that float around in my head
find no answers and that is the cost
but my life is more complicated than those dollars and sense
now there are too many feelings to condense

i live behind these headphones
because here is where i feel safe
where i know that things will always be the same
here is where i know i can go back to living my life
how i wish i can revert to the time i didnt need them
but ive passed the point of no return in my own self reclusion
