In Flames – The Attic lyrics

There's someone in "The Attic",
Building a strange machine.

Never really seen him,
But I think he works all day.

Blinded by the world outside,
I stay inside.

Hardly know my name,
But it's getting better by time.

I saw something in the mirror,
Someone's watching me.

If I hide in "The Attic",
I will never get to me.

I found some rope on the floor.
I have to build a trap.

So I start on my machine,
I am never to be seen.

    Well, He sees a person in "The Attic" which is building a strange machine, which is later revealed to be Himself as verse 1+8 hints towards and that verse 5+6 clearly verifies.
    So Hes singing about himself in "The Attic"(which by the "'s I can only believe that it is as a metaphor).
    The trap he is talking about in verse 7, may it be his trap to capture his "Evil in a Closet"?
    I'm no master lyrical genius, but il bet you 2 and a half baot-is that I'm onto something;)
