lyrics

You might think that it’s funny
But there’s really no way to find the time
To do this purely for money
Unless you want to get bored and toe the line
So take a seat at our table
And drink so deeply from the cup that I provide
For thought the liquid’s unstable
With every sip you will know that you’re alive

And through the cities and the wild
We’re taking over
So come and sing your last lullaby

This house is my house
So bring me fire, I’ll burn it all to ashes
It’s my life and it’s fine
And I will cry with laughter as I trash it
Well is it the parents or is it a phase?
This tiresome desire to shock and amaze
And so perhaps I’ll grow out of it one of these days
I don’t know

But now I’m clutching at shadows
Draped in ridiculous clothing every night
So monumentally shallow
And yet this shade of discomfort feels so right
For there are things that are worthless
But they are nothing in the eyes of history
That old celestial circus
With teeth and fingernails I’ll carve a place, you’ll see.

And through the cities and the wild
We’re taking over
So come and sing your last lullaby
This house is my house
So bring me fire I’ll burn it all to ashes
It’s my life and it’s fine
And I will cry with laughter as I trash it
Well is it the parents or is it a phase?
This tiresome desire to shock and amaze
And so perhaps I’ll grow out of it one of these days
I don’t know.

But at the dawning of this fight we kissed a sweet goodbye and off I sauntered for the cure
And even if the sky turns dark and hurls down bolts of lightning I will laugh and scream for more.

This house is my house
So bring me fire I’ll burn it all to ashes
It’s my life and it’s fine
And I will cry with laughter as I trash it
Well is it the parents or is it a phase?
This tiresome desire to shock and amaze
And so perhaps I’ll grow out of it one of these days
But for the moment I’m alright
