This House

lyrics

Down the fire escape, run to where it’s safe
Ghost of my life, you win this time
All our demons, all our saints, etched into the paint
And will never leave without a trace

Oh, the damage that we do
Oh, the mess we leave behind

Quicken the dead, open your arms
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)
The words that we said, the rise and the fall
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)

The panic in your brain, the site of every stain,
Every corner hides my face
In symmetry we dug ourselves under the rug
And we’ll never leave without a trace

Oh, the damage that we do
Oh, the mess we leave behind

Quicken the dead, open your arms
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)
The words that we said, the rise and the fall
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)

Oh, the damage that we do
Oh, the mess we leave behind

Quicken the dead, open your arms
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)
The words that we said, the rise and the fall
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)
The blood that we bled is nothing at all
Quicken the dead, open your arms
(This house will hold you in these walls long after you have come and gone)
