We're standing
We're standing
You call that gone?
I'm standing on the firmest ground ever invented
Firm ground I invented
You're building
Your building
The big door is closing
Came home from work and your house was missing
Told ourselves but we weren't listening

Do you remember the one who took 'Place in the Sun' from you?
I know you do
He had a heart of tin
And this amazing desire!
The face of a sphinx that smiled
Spit in the lock you'll find the knob will turn for you
In that golden hotel we can live in the hallway
All of the bedrooms fold into the Perfect Chair

Did you fall in love with someone?
Did you trade "out all night" for some strange sun?
Weren't you the one...
Fall back in love with someone?

Did you fall in line for someone?
Back down the same road that you came here from
Weren't you the one
That told me not to
Move around but never through?
That's the only thing you ever do

You're building
Your building
The big door is still closing
Came home from work and your house was missing
Told ourselves but we were never listening
Spit in the lock you'll find the knob will turn for you
In that golden hotel I'm gonna live in the hallway
All of the bedrooms fold into the Perfect Chair

Out on the wall
A hand had begun writing
Everybody understood
That it didn't mean a thing
I'll pay it back
I will pay it all back to you
You only have to ask me to

Did you fall in love with someone?
Did you "give up on that" for some strange sun?
Weren't you the one...
Fall back in love with someone?

Did you fall in line for someone?
Back down the same road that you came here from
Weren't you the one
That told me not to
Move around but never through?
That's the only thing we ever do

    General CommentThe best part of this song, no doubt, is the clapping.

    General CommentI can soooo relate to this one ... it is one of my fav tracks ever ... I guess the main idea is "caring is creepy" (like in he had a heart of "tin " or spit in the knob ... ) ... Well that's how I see it .. pretty much matches how I feel now (and quite often) .... almost feels too personal to be put on the net :P
    It's such a pity that they were always soooo underrated ....
    RIP sound team !!!!!!
