"Almost Every Door" as written by and John Darnielle....
Cower in the corner
Try hard to disappear
The moment's never going to come
When anyone can say that the coast is clear
Maybe turn around
Find a wall to break your fist on

Almost every door's an exit
Just not this one

Dream about the outside
Sprinting down the open plain
Barefoot and outclassed
Bloody up the broken grain
Every cartoon keg
TNT and nitroglycerin

Almost every door's an exit
Just not this one

Hours before each door
Like a sinner lost in prayer
Always one more hallway
At the bottom of the stair

I get knocked down
But I get up again like a dunce
Cave's all sealed up
Nowhere to hide out in the winter months
Aiming for the blackout
Spare a prayer for souls in prison

Almost every door's an exit
Just not this one
