Picture House – Empty Nest lyrics

Slap on the back
For the man with the sand in his hair
Spinning with sound
As you're feeling around for the change
Twist off the top
Even though you know he's never there
Polish the thoughts
For a moment you notice it's strange
How emptiness remains
Oh !, emptiness remains
Oh !, empty nest
Back in the shadow of days
Somehow you are remembering
But constant the flow
Of the poison that fills up your space
Day hits your eyes
Like the flash of a wedding day camera
Twist of the blade
But a memory you'll never betray
How emptiness remains
Oh !, emptiness remains
Oh !, empty nest
You get lost while you still can
That's the cost of living on a landslide
You can dance every night
No one's laughing at you now
