In this house nothing keeps you warm
In this house writings on the wall
Felt like this before
In this house vinegar and pain
In this house loneliness again

Nights without an end
Weeping trees, scolded knees, you'll never see a place to hide
A bed of bones and bruising stones, so alone inside the fear
In this house nothing keeps you warm
In this house writings on the wall
Felt like this before

    General CommentThis song is like the official opener to the album to me. "Look into the Light" feels more like a "welcome to your life" sort of intro. This whole album is brilliant.

    General CommentThe Spinning Top is a concept album that chronicles the life of a man from birth to death.
    This is the second song on the album. I feel that it is describing a part of our hero's childhood. The broken home he grew up in. The bad parts of his upbringing.
