"Houses" as written by and Stolte Bixler....
The end begins just as it starts
And leaves me wondering what we left behind.
Told me not to talk but please explain
My thoughts that float around my mind

So take a step back will you
Be alright feel alright?
And now

All this time when we walk we won't feel
But sometime in a box it won't steal you

(oh)

Up ahead i see it i can find it but i feel alive.
Followed me inside of a place
I felt like things would still be alright

And now
All this time when we walk we won't feel
But sometime in a box it can steal you
All this time when i talk its not real its not real not real not real its not real

All this time when we walk we won't feel
But sometime in a box it wont steal you
Oh this time when i walk i wont feel i wont feel
Oh this time when i talk its not real its not real not real not real its not real

Oh this time when i talk its not real its not real its not real

    Song MeaningI think this song is about friendship that's "not able" to exist anymore.

    You have a friendship with someone you trust and follow their heart. You talk together, share together, do everything together.
    But everyone changes eventually, everyone grows up and get different opinions on things. This way, the friendship weakens and you grow apart from each other.

    Because of someone changing views before you, your feelings go numb. Wondering if this is all real to you. You can't do anything to change their mind but it's still stuck in your head:
    "The end begins just as it starts,
    And leaves me wondering what we left behind
    Told me not to talk but please explain
    My thoughts that float around my mind"

    Your friend:
    "So take a step back will you
    Be alright, feel alright?"
    You obviously don't feel alright, you're scared of the reality that's brought upon you, which is the trigger.

    You wished you could still be with them, you wish you would have everything as how it was so you TRY stay optimistic:
    "Up ahead I see it I can find it, but I feel alive
    Followed me inside of a place
    I felt like things would still be alright"

    But eventually it goes to your head, so you're so bothered by it..It almost drives you insane even if you still try to fix it:
    "All this time when we walk we won't feel
    But sometime in a box it wont steal you

    You grow stronger, try to reject it. Try to not cling to the past, but still..It's bugging you:
    Oh this time when I walk, I won't feel, I won't feel
    Oh this time when I talk it's not real, it's not real, not real, not real, it's not real..."
    Hence the many repeats of "it's not real" because you repeat it over and over, it's something that's just driving you insane but still try to forget.
