NLF 4. House of Shame
Lyrics
House of Shame
© 2012 NLF (Bauer - Starburst)

It hurt so bad when you left me it turned my insides out
The searing pain morbid self blame the shrieks I'm screaming out
I cannot soothe there is no balm to wrestle calm these nerves
I'm drained, I'm spent, no energy, I've lost all my reserves

(chorus)
House of Shame, its you I blame, I kick you in the teeth
I'll burn you down, bury your crown, my children I bequeath
This house of shame this place of pain with shadows all around
This recalcitrant vagabond of loveless silent sounds
House of Shame, its you I blame, I kick you in the teeth
I'll burn you down, bury your crown, my children I bequeath
This house of shame this place of pain with shadows all around
This recalcitrant vagabond of loveless silent sounds

Roofless adobe whose dreams corrode don't know how to behave
It's raining sins in rusty bins beneath those I forgave
The hollowness the shallowness the walls that cannot breathe
The growing mounting tragedy of Satan's last reprieve

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Shriek oh shriek the fathoms reek
Decaying mortal flesh
Thunderbolts abnormal folks
Who testify in jest
Who testify in jest

(repeat chorus)
