Is it you who decides
If my time's well spent
Because I didn't leave my room today
(Time well spent)
I could ramble on for hours
If the topic fit my interest
(Time well spent)
Lately all my words are choked back down
Or delivered as a whisper
Just to compliment the silence of

The cold white sheets
On my empty bed
Far too big of a space
For the state I'm in
There's nothing going on
In my empty head
Far too small of a space
For the books I've read
To remain
To remain

    My InterpretationI think this is one of those songs with lyrics that everyone will probably interpret slightly differently.
    To me, it is about feeling in that bleak in-between place. You've been feeling kind of down and empty for a while, so it's more than just sadness, but it's not bad enough, or been going on long enough to be diagnosed as Depression. It could also be about the onset of Depression. You just don't have the appetite for life anymore, so you feel empty and nothing seems worth talking about or doing.
