"In The Room Where You Sleep" as written by and Zach Shields Ryan Gosling....
I saw something
sitting on your bed.
I saw something
touching your head.
In the room
where you sleep.
In the room
where you sleep.
Where you......sleep.

You better run.

You better run.

You better hide!

You better hide!
You better run.

I saw something
sitting on your bed.
I saw something
touching your head.
In the room
where you sleep.
In the room
where you sleep.
Where you......sleep.

You better run.

You better run.

You better hide!

You better hide!

There's something in the shadows
in the corner of your room.
A dark heart is beating
and waiting for you.
There is no open window, but the floors still creep.
In the room where you sleep.
In the room where you sleep......
Where you....sleep.

You better run.

You better run.

You better hide!

You better hide!


Oh......You better........run.

    General CommentFirst song I ever heard by them.
    It's kinda creeps me out.
    But I love it.
    I love the baby goose. <3
    And zack too I guess.
    I think the whole album is about death and love and zombies.

    Kickass. <3

    General Commentthis song can be interpreted in a variety of ways. but the way i see it, a man is witnessing a sort of literal monster in a girl's presence, in her room as she sleeps. the monster is really another man, but the witness can only see him as a monster, for whatever reason that may be.

    oh, and the wrap up party version of this is tops.

    My InterpretationThis witness perhaps has the ability to see the persons dream? And what they're truly afraid of. There is stark juxtaposition since your bedroom is meant to be comforting and safe, however it just depicts how our worries and fears aren't left, they're always there. Sleep is meant to evade it but of course in this case it doesn't.
