This House Will Burn
2 July 2007 · Print This Article
(Russell, Owens)
You left me nothing to lose
Falling out of my skin
I found that all this time
You’ve been lying to me
They left me battered and bruised
All these things that I’ve seen
Houses will burn down
And we will be torn at the seams
I’m taking everything back
I’m reclaiming the old city streets
I found that all this time
They’ve been waiting for me
They left me crawling and sick
All these things that I’ve seen
Houses will burn down
And we will be haunted by screams
Houses will burn down
And we will be torn at the seams
Now I talk in my sleep
I tell tales of daring and pain
All of my friends will be gathered in thundering rain
The truth is my sweetheart you’ll never see my face again
So you stand and you stare
If you think that I’m wrong, I don’t care
I’m pouring out all my heartbreak
But nothing is stirring inside
All that I ask for
Is some sign that I’m still alive
So I pour myself another black and white
And resign to settle in here for the night
I don’t care if you bring me back – just keep her safe from harm
And now I’m waiting for the call to bring my brothers home
Safe here in my arms
You left me nothing to lose
Nothing is real when there’s no one to hear you
In front of your eyes your whole life will come crashing
She will betray you as if you mean nothing
Painters will paint you a room that is flaming with fear
This house will burn down so please take me far, far from here

(Russell, Owens, Ward, Glozier)

I pack my case in the night
You tell me I’ll be alright
I call up all of my friends
I hold my breath, count of ten, then you

Come to me, we go together and you
Stay with me, we stay together and you
Come with me, we go together and we
Run

First light and we’re on our way
I say all I have to say
You stand with all of my friends
I run and run and run and run and then you

Come to me, we go together and you
Stay with me, we stay together and you
Come with me, we go together and we
Run

Come with me
Stay with me
Come with me
Stay with me

Come to me, we go together and you
Stay with me, we stay together and you
Come with me, we go together and we
Run
