Safe Here in My Room.

Checking out the bedroom door, a final time, Clark nodded to himself—muttering, “I’m safe here...”

With a shaking hand, he reached behind him, closed the door, locked it tightly, and dropped the laundry hamper. On his knees, Clark frantically dug through the pile, absently tearing some of Lex’s favorite clothing and casting it aside as he reached the precious contraband suit. He slipped it on carefully as if it were suddenly fragile – despite its titanium laces and alien technology—and looked into the mirror.

Superman’s cold blue eyes stared back as he answered, “Unless I try to start again.”

LINKIN PARK LYRICS

"Breaking The Habit"

Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I'm picking me apart again
You all assume
I'm safe here in my room
Unless I try to start again

[Bridge:]
I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

[Chorus:]
I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than anytime before
I had no options left again

[Bridge:]
I dont want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

[Chorus:]
I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So, I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
Tonight

[Bridge:]
I'll paint it on the walls
'Cause I'm the one at fault
I'll never fight again
And this is how it ends

[Chorus:]
I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
to show you what I meanA
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So, I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
I’m breaking the habit
Tonight
