Is it dark in your room?

Wonder if they come tonight
Something's taking out the lights
Better find a place to hide
Before the sun goes down and it's cold inside
I don't really know what's in these walls
Same house but it don't feel right
And I'm just holding on alone
While I tell myself that it's in my mind

I'm spending too much time
Lost and I can't find my way
Can you?

Is it dark in your room?
Are you afraid of it, too?
It's haunting us just
Living for tomorrow when it never comes
Being caught up in a permanent insomnia
Screaming in silence to anyone
Is it dark in your room?

Look
Tell me was it there last night?
Did it leave you paralyzed?
Sending shivers down your spine
Did you tell yourself that it's in your mind?

Can you feel it creeping in your bed?
Held down when you try to leave
Fear it when you're home alone
With a world outside
Full of stranger things

I'm spending too much time
Knowing nothing's
Ever what it seems

    My InterpretationThe bands lead singer Lou Miceli, dedicated a performance of this song to Linkin Park's Chester Bennington (who of course committed suicide last year on July 20th by hanging himself). So being that he dedicated this song to him, I imagine it's about being in a such a dark place in life that it seems almost suffocating. The kind of darkness & misery one can get so lost & overwhelmed in they'd do just about anything to escape it. Unfortunately, that way of escape could be suicide. This song is a forewarning of that darkness that we may all know is there but maybe aren't always conscious of & how dangerous being ambivalent to it can be.
