There has been an accident at the house built out of sticks
I will miss that little piggy
I can't believe this

Write this down and tell the world that the wolf has been found
When he dreams he dreams of flawless escape
Won't you try to get out of the way

Wait this is a cover up.

There has been one more victim
But I don't know his name
And the wolf has got a taste for bacon
But it's just a part of the game
When he dreams he dreams of flawless escape
Won't you try to get out of the way

Wait! This is a cover up
Let me see him
Alert the press!
Where is the warden?
Where is the wolf?
I've got to find him

Whenever you want it you can come and get it
Whenever you want him you can come and get him

    General CommentHonestly, this isnt a concept album as much as you all think lol... read interviews of them lol they hate concept albums. this is a cd that has a song about that.. schuylar writes very different, so to expect him to stay in one set of mind, is kind of ridiculous..
    sounds to me like a framing of some sort or like a person always besting the narrator... who knows

    General CommentObviously this song is a play of a different version of the story about the 3 little pigs. I think HIL changed it into a story in modern times. The wolf killing the pig(in the house build out of sticks) is just making headlines, and now a officer of the law is out to catch the wolf. I'm guessing that the second verse is about it happening again to another pig, but then he realizes that the crime scene or even the killings are a cover up for something else. The song ends with almost a taunt of saying "whenever you want him, you can come and get him"

    General CommentWell it's obviously about the 3 little pigs on the surface, but I think it's a symbol for the record industry.

    I think the pig with a stick house is supposed to represent a band that started out doing what they wanted and the wolf is a big corporate label, and they are changing the bands.

    That's what I think this song is about.

    General CommentI dunno, it seems like there could be a reverse take on the lyrics, like getting to comfortable in dangerous situations can be well, dangerous, hence the title witht the walls (like in a house) having teeth (and being able to eat you/destroy you). and how the little pigs always seem so comfortable in their houses even when the wolf is rite outside. Just a guess

    General Commentyeah i think 'the walls have teeth' is from the point of view of the pig, seeing the wolf's teeth where the wall used to be. the wolf has taken the place of the wall (the wolf has teeth)

    General CommentSeems like it's about a serial killer toying with the police. Zodiac-ish.

    General CommentI think the title is the pigs seeing from inside the wolfs mouth
    like the rooms the wolfs mouth and the walls have teeth
