The Classic Crime – Glass Houses lyrics

[VERSE 1]
They talk of glass houses
Well I built a crystal cathedral
And I took my stones to the rooftop
To play target practice with people
I was too young to know the difference
I was just following orders
But when the glass shattered around me
I learned a good lesson about my disorder

[CHORUS 1]
I thought I was happy
I said all the right things
I naively believed that my ship couldn't sink
But it did

[VERSE 2]
You got hung up on the outside
You fake like you're living the good life
But death and decay on the inside
Just add pride and hate to your long list of crimes
Somewhere deep down you know the difference
Between love and just following orders
But if the chorus I sing is offensive
It's proof that you've yet to address your disorder

[CHORUS 2]
You thought you were happy
You said all the right things
You naively believed that your ship couldn't sink
But it did
You thought you were God
And in charge of all your friends
You naively believed that your ship couldn't sink
But it did

[BRIDGE]
Grace comes to those who wait
Comes to those who pray
Through tears, they'll sing
And we'll all sing

[HOOK]
Dah dah dah dah
Da da-da da da da dah
Dah dah dah dah
Da da-da da da da dah
Oh oh oh oh
Da da-da da da da dah
Oh oh oh oh
Da da-da da dah

[CHORUS 3]
We thought we were happy
We said all the right things
We naively believed that our ship couldn't sink
But it did
We thought we were God
And in charge of all our friends
We naively believed that our ship couldn't sink
But it did, oh it did, oh it did!

[HOOK]
Dah dah dah dah
Da da-da da da da dah
Dah dah dah dah
Da da-da da da da dah
Oh oh oh oh
Da da-da da da da dah
Oh oh oh oh
Da da-da da dah
