It's the same old scene
You've been stuck at the screen for a lifetime
You keep your mind sharp and clean
With a fix of caffeine for the night time

You got a page full of friends
And a world without end, DIKU (Do I Know You)?
But if push comes to shove
You could do without them if they make you

With all this poison inside
It's much too late to decide
You've got your mind made up
You've been living a lie in your white room

For all the hours that you've cried
There's a year of love they denied
So you slip through the door and fall to the floor in your black room

You're a black room boy
You're feeling so way down
You're a black room boy
Forget the losses and burn down
You're a black room boy
Fall into city lights
You're a black room boy
Nothing else to be there

You kissed your mommy's hand
Wearing daddy's ring when they left you
And you buried yourself in the pain that they couldn't accept you
You're in a world of your own

Got no cellular phone
They can't track you
But the girl at the store with the sketchy rapport
She will back you

With all this poison inside
It's much too late to decide
You've got your mind made up
You've been living a lie in your white room

For all the hours that you've cried
There's a year of love they denied
So you slip through the door and fall to the floor in your black room

You're a black room boy
You're feeling so way down
You're a black room boy
Forget the losses and burn down
You're a black room boy
Fall into city lights
You're a black room boy
Nothing else to be there

You're feeling so way down
Forget the losses and burn down
Fall into city lights
Nothing else to be there

You're a black room boy.

    Haha the meaning of this song is not what people think. This song was a "joke" to the dj who made the song. Here's one thing no above & beyond fan knows, the entire "group thearpy" album was made by one guy, not a&b. So every lyric you hear is true, like the mother-father issues, the coffee addiction, and everything else. A&b knew this stuff so they decided to do a joke on him.

    I personally think this song could also apply to a “working boy” as in a night club stripper, hustler, escort, porn star, etc. Especially since a “black room” is generally associated with sex clubs, or dark spaces where leud behavior reigns. And the back room in the clubs is almost always black. Additionally the other lyrics support this theory as well; the abandonment isssues of his parents, not being socially accepted, and dealing with depression or being in a situation that isnt ideal and is largely based on creating a fantasy, diku(do i know you) - alot of new and anonymous clients but not knowing how to get out. But this is my own personal interpretation of the song and its one of my favorites on the album.

    The depression suffered by a boy leading a double-life in front of his parents by struggling with his sexuality in the closet, vainly trying to find solace in meaningless virtual relationships with other people like him. Barred from love, disowned by his family, and searching for someone to understand him, he falls from his white room into his black room.
