Born with teeth, unprotected, undressed in the midday sun
That's okay, I'll leave the strand of hair you left alone
When a picture leaves the wall, someone then receives the call
Careless talk costs lives you know, best make it sure
The woods get thick
So beat down the way
How far can you go
Until the house of leaves?

Red mannequin
Sees someone and takes them in
I don't mean anything
You're not feminine
You're not centered in
The stupid little things
Unintentional

Do you remember the time when Britain studied the treason line?
It couldn't matter less, you've got it on borrowed time
No-one ever sees who cares?
How far can you go
Until the house of leaves?

Don't close the house in the woods
We needed it to be there
Troubled grace, guilts and the fears
Buried in the walls
The clues are few and far between
Painted so much the colours fade
The place where options start to show
All she needed was the time to know

Cut your hair
Change your name
Lose your friends
You don't believe that stuff
You say it so off the cuff
What made you jump?
What made you scared?
Is it something gone
Or is it something there?

How far can you go until you get?
How far can you go until you get?
No-one ever sees you
Who cares?
How far can you go
Until the house of leaves

Staring, staring
Staring inside the admission queues
Admit one for one
They say you're leaving soon
This was where the good luck was made
So good luck
So long
Don't regret the decision made

Such precious time you keep
Precious time you keep
Promises you make
Promises you make
You know you've got it right here
Plans and schemes
To make it through
If I could just say hello
I would
And make things good for you
If I could just say hello
I would
Good luck in any space you choose

Well that's better then
That's all you need
Let's keep in line
Now you've found a new way
Better then
That's all you need
Let's keep in line
Now you've found a new way
A new way...

The woods get thick
So beat down the way
How far can you go?
The woods get thick
So beat down the way
How far can you go?
...

They never said they'd close the house up
They never said they'd close the house up
