lyrics

I woke in the morning
And I took my pill
As the rain started falling
Down my windowsill
And I stumbled to the house
At the bottom of the hill
And felt someone
Walk over my grave

And the rope
Was too loose
The bridge
Was too low
And the gun
Wouldn't fire
And I had nowhere
Else to go

A dead plant
By the door
Coming off at the hinges
And you can’t see the floor
For the belts and syringes
And a thin naked man
Just sits and stares
At the mirror
In his hands
And the life
He can’t repair

And the curtains are drawn
But there is no light
Just the remains
Of the sun
Clinging to the night
In the house
Of abandoned souls
The house of abandoned souls
In the house of abandoned souls
The house
That comes and goes

And this is a place
Where you can only survive
By living in limbo
More dead than alive
And she sleeps
In a bath
On lifestyle magazines
Convinced it’s the righteous path
To help her get clean

And you are free to leave
Any time you choose
But only via dreams
Or if your lips turn blue

In the house
Of abandoned souls
The house of abandoned souls
In the house of abandoned souls
The house
That comes and goes
