Monsters Are Real

When dawn breaks,
And the sun rises
They sit,
And wait for you
Under lock and key,
Behind the closed door

Your day drags on,
Without it opening,
Everyone you see
Doesn't realize
What's hiding
Behind the closed doors

The smiles and the laughs,
It's all just a mask
That protects,
The lock from breaking
From all that banging
Behind the closed doors

But when the sun sets,
The mask falls off
And they come bursting out,
Because nothing can stay
Behind the closed door
