Cass McCombs – Opposite House lyrics
[Verse 1]
The ceiling is on the floor
Floor in the refrigerator
What of the door?
It's there no more

When it rains inside
There is nowhere to hide
Which is why
I'm all sunshine

[Bridge]
Ain't nobody want you
Ain't nobody want me too
If hell is above you
You're even lower than I do

[Chorus: With Angel Olsen]
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why

Why does it rain inside?

[Verse 2]
Mine is in a busted house
Rain inside when it's sunny out
Outside in/ Inside out

One step forward two steps back
They say opposites attract
But they haven't tracked
In my heart shack

[Bridge 2]
The opposite of white
Isn't white but rainbow blood
This house is too narrow
And made from endangered wood

[Chorus: With Angel Olsen]
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why

Why does it rain inside?

[Middle Eight]
How do you make a magnet?
You create a potential
Just an old refrigerator magnet
Repelled and pulled
Ooohhhh why so needy?
Tell me why

[Verse 3]
Living in a golden age
Why do these words sound so strange?
Nothings changed
Inside this cage

From this window I can see
You coming back to me
How can this be?
My windows a dream

[Bridge 3]
Pet snakes in the hall
Pet snakes wall to wall
Coiling where the mice crawl
Winter, spring, summer and fall

[Chorus: With Angel Olsen]
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why
Oh why

Why does it rain inside?
