If you wanna stay
Always here
All these years
The last frontier
It's no concern of theirs
The world outside
Corrupts my child
So trust these eyes

Faith is in your soul
But in these walls
Hormones stall
Dogs will crawl
The vices and the doubt
We resist
All this shit
So kneel submit

Free love
Free love
Feel love in all my sisters
Breathe out
Blind house
You don't need to know their secrets
Believe me

Pray and violate
Abuse your trust
False gods must
Purge their lust
A family that lies
To seal your fate
To take the weight
Of their self-hate

Free love
Free love
Bring love to all my sisters
Breathe out
Blind house
You don't need to know their secrets
Believe me

Breathe out
Blind house
Free love
Feel loved

    General Comment:Steven Wilson said the inspiration for this song came from a raid of a fundamentalist church in Texas.

    There's a wiki entry about it here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    And you can hear Wilson talk about it in this video: roadrunnerrecords.co.uk/page/…

    Loving this track, by the way. :)

    My Opinion:"It's no concern of theirs
    The world outside
    Corrupts my child
    So trust these eyes"

    This song is ridiculously beautiful.

    I can't get enough of this album. I LOVE it. I think it's seriously better than sex.

    My Interpretation:I'm pretty sure this song is about a religious cult, or fundamentalist group. The song mentions staying behind the walls and not needing to look at the "corrupt" world.

    My Interpretation:Sounds like an attack on the average pedestrian and their trust of the media.

    My Opinion:This song is soo sad..

    Little girls being molested by people of the 'faith'. A false kind of trust.. It is horrible and I don't want to discuss this any further. I can feel the hurt in this song, I can share their pain.

    You don't need to know their secrets.. You wouldn't understand.

    General Comment:I think there's a one mistake in the lyrics but the rest is totally correct

    Faith is in your soul
    But in these walls
    All Most of
    Dogs will crawl
