Shelf in the Room Lyrics

The key is so distant
I've opened doors
Know when to listen
Know what to listen for (yeah)

The shelf in the room
Has been the way of holding me
And letting me stay

Kick me out
Let me go
I don't belong here no more
A releasing sense of getting tired
Hold myself
I can't hold myself

The shelf in the room
Has been so true
I can hide in
The shelf in the room Holding out
Never hold in
Holding out
Never hold

Know when to listen
Know what to listen for
Believe in resistance
Don't let them tell you anymore
Is there anyway/no
To get away/no
Ask myself
While I stay inside

The key is so distant
I've closed my doors
The shelf in the room
Is rain waiting to pour

Thoughts & Meanings

After learning that Travis Meeks is autistic, I feel this song may reflect his struggles with autism. Not knowing when to listen, or what to listen for, is a social deficit which autistic people tend to have. Other key phrases which make me believe this is a song about the struggles autistic individuals face is the sense of not belonging, (I don't belong here no more), and hiding within one's self in plain sight (I can hide in the shelf in the room).
