Woke when it was dark,
wait for day to start before you leave,
turned on both the lights,
what we found we didn't like so we turned our back,

Oh no you found me,
Oh no you found me, here

Somethings happened in the attic,
there's no way I am going up there,
Somethings happened in the attic,
We both know I'm not going up there,

Oh no they found me,
Oh no they found me, here

Somethings happened in the attic,
there's no way I am going up there,
Somethings happened in the attic,
We both know I'm not going up there,
Somethings happened in the attic,

This is my house, This is my home

    General CommentWhat? I reckon its likely about a failing relationship.

    "turned on both the lights, what we found we didn't like so we turned our back"

    "Somethings happened in the attic, We both know I'm not going up there"

    They both know its over but neither want to face it.

    General Commentin my opinion, they both saw the end, they knew it was coming, and they
    avoided, stayed in the dark, didn't let the truth of there end come to light
    and when it finally did, they still couldn't face it.

    General CommentMay be missing a poetic metaphor, but I like to imagine it's about a spirit or poltergeist.

    My InterpretationA reason why I love this song so much is that I see it as a protagonist in a horror movie that knows that something terrible has happened/is happening in the attic of their house, and they don't want to go up there but they know they have to.
    Actually, it doesn't even have to be a horror movie, any horror (war, abuse, kidnap so on) in life could fit this interpretation perfectly. "Oh no you found me,
    Oh no you found me, here" fits the sort of 'little kid hiding from the bad man' sort of idea I have. 'This is my house this is my home' shows how horrors can happen anywhere, even in the place you've grown and love.
    Coupled with how tender the song is I love this interpretation. It's such a lovely contrast.

    My OpinionI'm a french people, and my english is far from perfect, bu i love to read and/or translate what i'm listening to. WWPJ is one of my favorite band ever.

    I really love the first album. i'm listening this while i'm writing for the first time since a long time.

    and the first verse, it feels like this to me :
    it makes me think about the wedding
    two people, in their 50 or 60
    waking up in the night, facing the loved one (ot so-called loved-one)
    because of a noise or something
    then they turned on the light. there is a sound in the attic, but this fact is secondary, the first thing that camr to my mind is :
    they wke up, and they see each other, the first sight of the "day".
    and they didnt like what they see, like
    'this is the person i share my bed with since xx Years, and... i dont like it anymore, so i tunr my back, to go back to my dreams, or my thoughts, whatever.

    and the sound in the attic, when he says "i wont go there", it makes me think about a "coward"... --> my wife knows that i wont go there, she knows im afraid about facing things, be stron, and yes, there is that sound, i wont go see whats happening... and this is probably the reason she tunrs her back when we face each other when we're in the bed...

    sorry about the confused point of view...
    it makes me think about a domestic confusion
    "rhis is my house, this is my home" = this is my life, this is how it happens inside my walls, where nobody (friends, coworkers...) can see/know whats going on in my life.
    its about a relationship who is dead for a long time.
    looking at the other guy/girl and knowing that he/she knows that this is finish (that this is over? i dont know how to say this in english...)

    well...
    im probably teribly wrong about the song
    but i love that band, really i mean it
    i listened to it during a tough and sad year.

    anyway, if anybosy wanna speak about the band or anything, feel free to send me a mail at mistaken.for.val.jester@gmail.com
