"Nursery Academy" as written by and Monks Wright....
I would've gone back home
I would've gone back home
It's bad enough you're here
And it's worse that you've come along

Paper walls unfold, as you'd expect
The house that built a home for architects

Now that you're all grown up
I know a shortcut back
Welcome to your new home
Welcome to the nursery

We keep keys on strings
Doorknobs out of reach
Come a little closer
Forget the Academy

Paper walls unfold, as you'd expect
The house that built a home for architects
Because the word on the street is
That you've got a weakness
Paper walls unfold, as you'd expect

I would've gone back home
I would've gone back home
It's bad enough you're here
And it's worse that you've come along

Because the word on the street is
That you've got a weakness
Paper walls unfold, as you'd expect

I would've gone back home
(Paper walls unfold, as you'd expect)
I would've gone back home
The house that built a home for architects

I would've gone back home
(Paper walls unfold, as you'd expect)
I would've gone back home
The house that built a home for architects

    General CommentAlso I think he says "It's bad enough you're here and its worse that you've come 'alone'" which I think is worse than simply coming "along"
    ouch.

    General Commenti think its talking about an orphanage, cause it most likely sucks to be there, especially if your all alone without a bro or a sis

    General CommentI think it's a metaphor for the real world.
    The Nursery could be life after high school/college.
    Because you feel like an adult when you're a senior in high school, but you go out into the world and you realize that you're almost like a child again.

    General CommentI always figured they were talking about a bar. And how the weekness is an addiction to alchohol. And the nursery is the pub, and te academy is actually an academy and they forget their studies and their prope life just to drink. Paper walls is the true life the character lives

    General Comment" the house that built a home for architects" even though you have money (architects make money) that you can still have a weekness and a depression
