The Secret Room
Words 2013, music 2012/2013
There’s nothing my mind can’t grind into dust
No tissue paper moral or ideal I trust
There’s no ember that glows I can’t foresee to its snuffing
No comforting cushion I can’t empty of stuffing
There is a secret room in my house
I’ve never seen before—upstairs, behind the loft
Squeeze through the hidden doorway
It’s well-lit—and empty
I’m going there tonight!
There’s no river that runs that I can’t trace to a cold source
No trail that’s been trod I won’t pin on an old horse
There’s no wise man with the cards who I believe isn’t bluffing
No scaly skin I won’t insist will be sloughing
There is a secret room in my school
I’ve never been in—up above the auditorium
Follow the white corridor no one sees
Navigate the twists
I’m going there right now
