Main Drag – Swine Houses lyrics

As I lay awake
I hear clappin' from inside the walls, so it
Must be my mistake
I spend hours trying to lock the doors, but they
Always come right in
They want bones hidden in the boards
I could show you
Where the safe is still

Yours as fast mine
It's all black inside the house, you send
All of your children
Take all who are willing

Yours as fast mine
It's all black behind, inside, you send
All of your children
Take all who are willing

Think I might have sent
The wrong copy of my diary
Re-connects the dots
From the treasure to the misery if I
Live to tell your tale
Of a haunted house and jamboree
Would I go live
Outside again?

If you're still scared of others
Then just crawl back in your covers (whoa)
If you still care for others
Then you sleep outside your covers (whoa, oh)
If you still hate the shadows
And the headlights from the windows (whoa, whoa oh)
Yours as fast as mine!
If you still fear the sounds and
All the swine within your houses (whoa, whoa oh)
Show me all the tricks you fell for
And tell me what you're going to hell for (whoa, whoa)
Yours as fast as mine!
It's all black behind inside!
