"Black Room Boy" as written by and Anthony Patrick James Mcguinness Andrew Bayer....
It's the same old scene
You've been stuck at the screen for a lifetime
You keep your mind sharp and clean
With a fix of caffeine for the night time

You got a page full of friends
And a world without end, DIKU
But if push comes to shove
You could do without them if they make you

With all this poison inside
It's much too late to decide
You've got your mind made up
You've been living a lie in your white room

For all the hours that you've cried
There's a year of love they denied
So you slip through the door and fall to the floor
In your black room

You're a black room boy
You're feeling so way down
You're a black room boy
Forget the losses and burn down
You're a black room boy
Fall into city lights
You're a black room boy
Nothing else to be there

You kissed your mommy's hand
Wearing daddy's ring when they left you
And you buried yourself in the pain that they couldn't accept you

You're in a world of your own
Got no cellular phone
They can't track you
But the girl at the store with the sketchy rapport
She will back you

With all this poison inside
It's much too late to decide
You've got your mind made up
You've been living a lie in your white room

For all the hours that you've cried
There's a year of love they denied
So you slip through the door and fall to the floor
In your black room

You're a black room boy
You're feeling so way down
You're a black room boy
Forget the losses and burn down
You're a black room boy
Fall into city lights
You're a black room boy
Nothing else to be there

You're feeling so way down
Forget the losses and burn down
Fall into city lights
Nothing else to be there

You're a black room boy
You're feeling so way down
You're a black room boy
Forget the losses and burn down
You're a black room boy
Fall into city lights
You're a black room boy
Nothing else to be there

    General CommentThis song is all about giving in to your vices after a lost or betrayal of love
    "you can do without them if they make you"
    "a year of love they denied"

    On the outside you try to keep yourself looking happy in your "white room"
    You've been living a lie in your white room

    . all the pain and emotion from the loss adds up. "For all the hours that you've cried"

    but then eventually
    "...you slip through the door and fall to the floor in your black room." the black room is supposed to resemble being alone and being consumed by emotion..and drugs "..with all this poison inside"

    "You're feeling so weighed down
    Forget the losses and burn down
    Fall into city lights
    Nothing else is easy"

    Eventually, you break. Giving in to your vices. Nothing else is easier than that
