lyrics

There stands a nowhere house
Upon a no way street
Where decayed foundations
Heave beneath these feet
I'm inhaled inside
And held by hollow, heavy arms
In a maze of empty chambers
Chanting endless charms

No room for strangers here
Who trespass on these grounds
There's no entry, no escape
It's out of bounds
No-one owns this place
This house can never be possessed
But we've been waiting in these walls
For this unwelcome guest

This flesh has overcome
And passed through every test
No more woeful whispering
Leave and let me rest
Now the game is won
This shifting, shuffling must cease
As a beating heart is muted
Fade away and rest in peace


Hear the soul deluded
As he asks the dead to leave
Shatter his denial
Show him his grave to grieve
Here he'll stay a captive
For this house shall lock him in
He is one of us
And he has always been

Death has stolen life from me
And tricked me into hell
I'll destroy the shelter of
This lifeless shell
Bricks will fall and crumble
I'll rip locks away from gates
Nothing shall remain of
This dark hiding place


Forced into the daylight
Where ill harm is dispossessed
Flee the dawn approaching
With no place to rest
On the plains to roam forever
Helpless and alone
With nothing but a memory of
The House of Bones
