These 39 paintings on paper hugging the architecture, mirroring this architecture, mirroring self. Theres no running from reflection.
In a buildin’ tall with a stone wall around there’s a rubber room
When a man sees things and hears sounds that’s not there
He’s headed for the rubber room
Illusions in a twisted mind to save from self-destruction hmm it’s the rubber room
Where a man can run into the wall till his strength makes him fall and lie still
And wait for help in the rubber room
From his blurry vision of doom a psycho in the rubber room
The man in the room right next to mine screams a woman’s name hits the wall in vain
He’s in the rubber room
I hear footsteps poundin’ on the floor God I hope they don’t stop at my door
Hmm I’m in the rubber room
Now they’ve come to get me but they find
I’m a screamin’ pretty words tryin’ to make ’em rhyme
I’m n the rubber room hmm a psycho I’m in the rubber room hmm
– Porter Wagner, Rubber Room
