This Crowded House

lyrics

Encircle the shrine
a house of sticks

stone walls around a dream
of red tide,
Your chastity elects.
to keep it inside,

this crowded house.
with the door shut tight,
where night is a game
that's lost in the day,

It's dumb to pretend,
when mamma's away.

She once had a dream,
things not what they seem,
lightning strikes,
spearing her shame,
thunder clouds came,
calling her name.
Saw a great white boat,
on a dead calm sea,
of old shrunken dreams,
inside screams,

leave her to fear
lock her
away.


he said
The madness I need within you
is my chance to win you
i will put my madness in you
My madness comes alive in you
My madness is inside you
In my madness
I would die.
for you.


old shrunken dreams,
inside screams,

leave her to fear
lock her away.

keep it inside,
door shut tight,
leave her to fear
lock her away.

put my madness
in you

Go down to the line,
make no sound,
brightly sprightly build the fire,
you nightly light the funeral pyre.
Flames flicker, fingers burned,
in bitter sweet tears to swallow her pain.
leave her to fear
lock.
her.
away.
