"The House She Lived In (Album Version)" as written by and Finn Andrews....
This is the house she lived
It was the house she was born in
That was the bed she slept in
And this is all we are left with

And this is her mother
She goes round and round
And thinking about it
And how it all went down

This is the house she lived
It was the house she was born in
That was the bed she slept in
And this is all we are left with

And this is my heart
It's wounded even now
She ripped it apart
And fed it to the beast under the stairs

This is the house she lived
That was the house she was born in
And that was the bed she slept in
And this is all we are left with

I'd pull my weight if it made any difference
He gave his life for the nine million others

And on his grave's written "Here Lies Joseph"
"His Countries Gun And Innocent Soldier"
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one

He grew a blood red vision for all their good intentions
He made an easy million from a foreign investment
He danced with the Devils in beautiful buildings

Affirmative action for a useful reunion
He'd change his name if it made any difference
Now he's waiting in line for the lasting confession

On his grave's written "Here Lies Our Son Joseph"
"His Countries Gun And Innocent Soldier"
Well, fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one
Fight your way out of this one

    General Commentit talks about razor blades, so i'm assuming she at least attempted it
    also, the part about "i'll see you in the flowers" for some reason makes me think that she may be dead? i don't know though, just the vibe i got

    this song is absolutely lovely though
