Memory Lane

    Newer Older

    this is the place you'll end up when you lose the chase
    where you’re dragged against your will
    from a basement on the hill
    and all anybody knows is you're not like them
    and they kick you in the head
    and send you back to bed
    isolation pulled you passed a tunnel to a bright world
    where you can make a place to stay
    but everybody's scared of this place
    they're staying away
    your little house on memory lane

    the mayor’s name is fear
    his voice patrols the pier
    from a mountain of cliche
    that advances everyday
    the doctor spoke of cloud
    he reigned out loud
    "you'll keep the doors and windows shut
    and sware you'll never show a soul again"
    but isolation pushes you ‘til every muscle aches
    down the only road it ever takes
    but everybody's scared of this place
    they're staying away
    your little house on memory lane
    if it's your decision
    to be open about yourself
    be careful or else
    be careful or else

    I'm comfortable apart
    it's all written on my chart
    and i take what's given me
    most cooperatively
    i do what people say
    and lie in bed all day
    absolutely horrified
    i hope you're satisfied
    isolation pushes past self-hatred, guilt and shame
    to a place where suffering is just a game
    but everybody's scared of this place
    they're staying away
    you're little house on memory lane
    you're little house on memory lane
