lyrics

the walls, they groaned,
barely holding back the wind as it howled like a banshee down the street,
and shadows thrown from a single bulb crept along the peeling paint
as a fly buzzed ‘round a knife left in the sink.

the floorboards creaked under muddy boots
as I moved another chess piece into place
and fire flared from gasoline poured on bloody sheets
while I sat at the kitchen table and sharpened my teeth

all these little houses, so quiet in a line
with all their little secrets tied up in the basement
just beyond the light

and under the stairs there’s a patch of earth
freshly turned and human-shaped
a hole dug deep
while I sit at the kitchen table and sharpen my teeth

all these little houses, so quiet in a line
with more little secret slipping through the handcuffs
just beyond the light

and under the stairs there’s a patch of earth
freshly turned and human-shaped
a hole dug deep
while I sit at the kitchen table and sharpen my teeth

behind the door of the last house in the line
I’m coiled, I’m a snake ready to strike...

the walls, they groan,
as the wind slips through the keyhole
like a cold blade hunting someplace warm to sheath
while I sit at the kitchen table and sharpen my teeth
while I sit at the kitchen table and sharpen my teeth
