"Your Room" is a Maladroit-era Weezer demo.

Overview

The Catalog O' Riffs lists the song as having been first written in 2001. "Your Room" shares its single-verse structure with the song "The Dawn", around the same time.

"Your Room" is first known to have been demoed during the recording sessions at Sage and Sound Recording in Hollywood from August 29 through September 8, 2001, the first sessions to feature bassist Scott Shriner. The song was demoed extensively over the next several months. The song was on the "Black album" sets of demos recorded at Steakhouse Studios and Cello Studios. The song was played live by the band for the HBO show Reverb (wherein the band performed as "Goat Punishment") at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood, though the performance of "Your Room" did not air. The song was performed at various shows in late 2001 during the Hyper-Extended Midget Tour. Karl Koch uploaded multiple soundboard recordings of the song from that tour to Weezer.com. Several in-progress recordings of the song were also uploaded by the band during the sessions for Maladroit, but the song was, ultimately, not included on the album.

You're coming up worlds away
There's nothing that I can say
And all of these games you play
Will lead you to your room
