Cross my heart, I don't want to die
But heaven knows, it seems like I try
Lost in a labyrinth, for weeks on end
I live and learn from my mistakes, then forget them again
Got a feeling in my stomach and it just won't quit
It's subtle as a shotgun, heavy as a brick
Because I'm staring at the devil and the truth of it is
He's a lot more familiar than I'd care to admit
If only I could focus, maybe if I could see
If I didn't know any better, I would say he looks just like me

The roof is crashing down, the walls are caving in
We discover all your stories are just works of fiction
The roof is crashing down, the truth is spilling out

Oh shit, I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
Crossed the line, so many times, that I don't even know what it stands for
Oh shit, I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
Crossed the line, so many times, that I don't even know what it stands for

Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say

Got a feeling in my stomach and it just won't quit
It's subtle as a shotgun, heavy as a brick
Bite your tongue
Just bite your tongue
You've already said quite enough

The roof is crashing down, the walls are caving in
We discover all your stories are just works of fiction
The roof is crashing down, the truth is spilling out

Oh shit, I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
Crossed the line, so many times, that I don't even know what it stands for
Oh shit, I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
Crossed the line, so many times, that I don't even know what it stands for

You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair and let's be done with it
You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair, so kick the chair

You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair and let's be done with it
You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair, so kick the chair

Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say

    I'm not entirely sure what this song is about. However, a few days ago I realized just how much I can relate with it.
    I keep lying to people, and it keeps building up, and it only gets worse and worse. I've crossed the line way too many times, and recently I got what I wished for. And you know what? The end result sucked, and all the lies came crashing down on me.
    I don't know what they meant when they wrote these lyrics, but that's my little input. That's what it means to me.

    Basically a song about knowing what you're getting yourself into, because if you do there ain't no returning! I think that's what it's about anyway! P. S good song as well :d

    I don't think it has much to do with suicide, but to kill the lie "kick the chair" the regret of the lie is too much to handle why go through with it? Its with you always

    E if he wants to go the whole way with it. By unregistered on oct 31st 2011 8:50 pm maybe both "unregistered" and mattymik are
    Both right because maybe someone had lied alot
    And the lies were exposed and since the lies
    Were exposed and no one liked him anymore,
    Maybe he was going to commite suicide so he
    "kicked the chair" while there was a "noose around his neck" and now his home is a hole/
    Grave :p by unregistered on sep 7th 2011 11:25 pm yea i agree with you. Ive worked for three years
    To gain so much social status. And recently my
    Lies were exposed and i lost everything and
    Everyone. By mattymik on jul 15th 2011 7:05 am to me this song means that someone has
    Commited suicide "kick the chair" so he has a
    Noose around his or her neck and has hanged
    Themself in their house and are being burried
    "the roof is crashing down the walls are caving
    In" and when he says home sweet hole as in his grave is now his home and he will be there
    Forever. (sorry if this dosnt make sense i mucked
    Up abit and had to delete some of it because it
    Was incorrect and this i
