"House Of Chains" as written by and Philip Adam/messina Taylor....
I'm so stripped down and naked
Feed me with change
Love me numb
So I can heal your pain
Make me wake up early
I'll drive home so far away
Skip school and sleep in my car
Turn on the head and melt the snow away

Is there still time for love
Love.
I'll forgive and forget
I won't regret a thing
But my pride and anger
It's a danger to myself

Now I'm looking out the front door window
To my teen hood house of chains
Seems like everyone's pretending to know the key
To something for somewhere
They've never been
In this road never ending
I'm ending this with you
Let's go there
Still time for me and you

Is there still time for love
Love.
I'll forgive and forget
I won't regret a thing
But my pride and anger
It's a danger to myself

Mom's in the hospital
She's sick and under nourished
But anything is possible
She says violets always flourish
Fathers so afraid
Of the child inside he's lost
So how much will he pay
For all the pain he caused
I saw him smiling, laughing
Betrayed and so lost but I found, let's celebrate it
No matter what it costs

Is there still time for love
Love.
I'll forgive and forget
I won't regret a thing
But my pride and anger
It's a danger to myself

We don't have to wait
Now's never too late
Now is forever
And we are always free

We don't have to wait
Now's never too late
Now is forever
And we are always free

    General Commentfirst on the lyrics, i believe he is saying.

    " but this pride and anger is a danger, i cant HEAL"

    then this part of the song is not correct.

    in this road never ending
    i'm ending this with you
    let's go there'


    it is very tough to here but sounds like he says something like:

    in this road never ending
    and im mending and
    we're bending
    here in two
    lets goooo lated


    this song to me seems to be about a kid hating his parents/ and life during his Adolescence, teen years. now as an adult, and his mom on the end of her rope, he wants to mend all his feelings of hatred toward his parents. you only get one family and one chance, he saying its never to late to forgive.



    "so betrayed and so lost but i found IT", let's celebrate it
    no matter how much it costs


    forgiveness is what he "found" in this line. no matter the cost, means do what you have to , to get your relationship back before its too late.


    great song
