"Get out of This House" as written by and Shawn/leventhal Colvin....
Go jump in the lake go ride up the hill
Get out of this house
It's a house of your making it's a house of ill will
Get out of this house
Go listen to Buddha go listen to Joe
Get out of this house
If anyone asks you tell them you don't know
Get out of this house

I spent eleven long years in a hot house zone
I spent twenty nine more trying to get home
Well I never got home but I did what I did
And I got myself this house and you can't come in

I'm the queen of my castle, I'm the king of my room
Get out of this house
I got more than I need, more than I ever could use
Get out of this house

I spent seventeen years trying to save my soul
I spent twenty three more down in the hole
Now my soul is alright but I might get found out
I got myself this house now and I can't get out

If I see you again it will be in my head at the end of a cloud
If you see me again it will be in your head telling you to get out

You act like a baby, you talk like a fool
Get out of this house
Go back to your mama, go back to high school
Get out of this house

Go jump in the lake, go jump out the door
Get out of this house
I've had all I can stand and I can't stand no more
Get out of this house
Get out of this house

    General CommentI think it is about escaping a troubled childhood to build a trouble free home just to find yourself, suprisingly, in a home life you never thought you'd live again.

    "I spent eleven long years in a hot house zone
    I spent twenty-nine more trying to get home
    Well, I never got home, but I did what I did
    And I got myself this house and you can't come in, oh"
