This house is abandoned,
I live here alone.
The rain rots the wood,
Whilst the stench eats the stone,
And all the leaves they glow.
They'll wait for the winter,
Then hide in the snow.

The walls have their memories,
Their stories to tell.
Ghosts walk the hallways,
'How could you?' they yell.
The birds they scream and crow,
And sing of the terrible secrets they know.

And if you marry I don't forgive nor forget,
Because I dropped the vase and walked straight through the glass
And with these bloody feet stained the carpets and sheets
Of the house that we made, once imagined, now haunted by you.

This is my castle,
Here is my throne,
This is the kingdom
That I rule alone.
And all the weeds that grow,
They cling to the rafters to take in the show.

I'll raise the taxes and I'll cut the wage.
Where is my jester, court? Summon my page.
The halls and windows glow
With light from the candles we lit years ago

If you marry I don't forgive nor forget,
Because I dropped the vase and walked straight through the glass
And with these bloody feet stained the carpets and sheets
Of the house that we made, once imagined, now haunted by you.

Where is my cavalry?
Where is my maid?
Answer the question,
Or no one gets paid.
Nobody answers 'cause nobody stayed.
What a shame, what a waste,
Hail the king.

Oh, if you marry I don't forgive nor forget
Because I dropped the vase and walked straight through the glass
And with these bloody feet stained the carpets and sheets
Of the house that we made, once imagined, now haunted by you.
