The Old House

from by NO FLOWERS

lyrics

the old house calls you
it calls you back
you know its crumbling walls
just like the backs of your hands

swaddled in cobwebs
hushed up by the drafts
discomfort so familiar
feels like you never left
this house needs a tenant
the parasite needs a host
it's eaten too many nights from me
so I'm moving out

"let lightning strike"
my prayer to the clouds
draw a line through the sky
and let this house burn down

the floorboards groan
and the garden's overgrown
the pipes leak, the stairs creak
that lovely sound when there's no one around
empty hallways echo
buried under dust
forgotten lore in the basement floor
stories you can't trust

"let lightning strike"
my prayer to the clouds
draw a line through the sky
and let this house burn down
