Flesh For Lulu – House Of Cards lyrics

You drag this ball and chain
Across the desert plain
You build a house of cards
Around a loveless heart

Wild country in your head
Gone dead, river bed
In the dust you cry, cry, cry
There's no water in the skies

Bone dry, built on sand
A house of cards that will never stand
The doors crash open and the flood comes in
And the flood takes everything

So speak the language slow
Beg some foreign money
You're growing up on dog food
In the land of milk and honey

Shoot for the moon
Live a life out of a window
In your room, all alone
You watch the sky, watch the storm

Coming down
On your house of cards
Drink another drink
And I spill my stories

But when I wake up
I forget my stories
Magnificent in failure
Resplendent in decay

Tall tales of the land and the sea
And the tides
That tore away my house of cards

It's so hot, so hot in here
I can't sleep with you so near
And the time goes by so slow
And the night peels away like gasoline

Shoot for the moon
Live a life out of a window
In your room, all alone

You watch the sky
Watch the storm
Coming down, coming down
On your house of cards
