You started staring at the walls again
And the pictures turned back into empty frames
Your sense will go before your looks will leave you
And in time the ones you love will all leave too.

No dreams are not how they seemed back when you were young
You lost your way and you couldn't overcome
The times you'd hide, what's been building up inside
'Cause dreams aren't how they seemed when you were young.

And I followed you for miles through foreign sights
To the hose where all your demons came to life
And I saw fear and innocence om childrens eyes
Then your face changed and I ran back into the night.

No dreams are not how they seemed back when you were young
You lost your way and you couldn't overcome
The times you'd hide, what's been building up inside
'Cause dreams aren't how they seemed when you were young.

I saw the colours drained from your veins, through the teeth of leeches

No dreams are not how they seemed back when you were young
You lost your way and you couldn't overcome
The way you hide, what's been building up inside
'Cause dreams aren't how they seemed when you were young

No they're not what they used to be, to be.

    I don't know why, but whenever i've listened to this song i've always thought of someone with alzheimers, as, with reference to the house, when a person suffering with the condition has an attack, if they come across a familar sight or object, then memories will come flooding back. That's my take on the song at least.

    It seems like one is being exploited and hasn't managed to break away, looking at the video would suggest she has broke away because she figured she would be stuck in a controlling environment.. And knew she where going to face a bad ending
