The House Is Crumbling

Watch

Your tongue.

Your mouth

Is mumbling the

Words

You can't

Put out.

Are spitting out the

Fire

Inside

Your mouth.

Just let it out.

Come

Inside.

The house

Is crumbling and

I'm

Afraid

To shout.

I shake a little

When-

Ever

You're out.

Just let me out.

You close your eyes to calm the

Blood that's rushing through your veins.

Well it doesn't really matter what you hide.

Dive

Into the night

For me at least, it

Seems

Like you've

Been trying.

To cut it out

And break

Away tonight.

You'll be alright.

So leave

While you're

Alive.

I'm dying but I'll

Never

Leave

Your side.

Is aching with the

Angels in the sky.

We leave tonight.

And you're fine.

You're sneaking out the window to

Try to inquire the lighter again.

But you've been on my case since '95.

You close your eyes to calm the

Blood that's rushing through your veins.

Well it doesn't really matter what you hide.

We were stuck inside the hotel praying

That I'll swear to God if you don't know,

And I'll tell him "You're the worst mixed message."

And I hope to God you don't come home.

Shut myself inside my bedroom praying

That I cry to God if you don't show.

And I'll tell him "I'm the worst mixed message",

And I hope to God you take me home.

I'm stuck inside your mirror.

My hands are growing cold.

I'm not worth anything but,

Can you let me come home?

I'm stuck inside your mirror.

My God, it's getting cold.

I'm not worth anything but,

Can you let me come home?

I never wanted you to fall away from me until you stumbled up the stairs,

It's getting hard to breathe.

And I know you've had it rough; I'm counting down the days.

I can hear you say it loud,

Singing, "Come at it, come at it again."

You're sneaking out the window to try and

Inquire the lighter again.

But you've been on my case since '95.

You close your eyes to cut the blood that's rushing through your veins.

Well, it doesn't really matter what you hide.

We were stuck inside the hotel praying.
