House of Lies

The caves of denial are closing in,
The walls of spider spun lies are falling,
The floor of unstable dreams is collapsing,
All of this was only a matter of time I admit,
But could it not have stayed just a little longer?

The ceiling of unstructured stories is finally losing the battle,
The doorways fall in on themselves as lies are exposed,
The window of light made by untruths fades fast,
This house we built is unstable,
I think it might be time I left, don’t you?

I can’t live in this hovel, of untold truths, of lies and so much pain,
I can’t live in a home where every once and a while I can’t escape the rain,
What’s the point darling, you know I must leave in the end,
Your pretend fantasy home is now falling down around us, there’s nothing but a bloody stain.

The world falls down on its self as the fantasies fade to black,
The trees burn and water dries as all the lies that were denied come to light,
Animals flee this place for fear of being infected,
This place we created is unstable,
I think it might be time I left, don’t you?

I can’t live in this hovel, of untold truths, of lies and so much pain,
I can’t live in a home where every once and a while I can’t escape the rain,
What’s the point darling, you know I must leave in the end,
Your pretend fantasy home is now falling down around us, there’s nothing but a bloody stain.

And in the end, what must be will be,
It would not have lasted forever, you and me,
Whether we like it or not, in the end we had to see,
This place we created is unstable,
I think it might be time to call it quits, don’t you?

I can’t live in this hovel, of untold truths, of lies and so much pain,
I can’t live in a home where every once and a while I can’t escape the rain,
What’s the point darling, you know I must leave in the end,
You pretend fantasy home is now falling down around us, there’s nothing but a bloody stain.
