The Room is a song which deals with the inevitable loss we all have to face at some point in our lives. Growing up, we're taught how to deal with loss, how to move on, how to cope. There comes a point for everyone where no matter how hard we try, no matter how hard we need to, the loss is too much to overcome, too hard to bear, too inconceivable to look past.
Written from the perspective of a man who has lost the love of his life, The Room depicts the desperation and heartache of a lifelong loss in a small chapter of denial. The man refuses to deal with what has happened, instead convincing himself that his loved one's hospital room is now his waiting room, his refuge, his church, and he won't leave until he can leave with her.
The Room is wrenching, brooding, and heartbreaking, but at the same time carries a message of unity for anyone who has lost something they can't accept.
