There is only clear soup
In the pot
I left it on the stove for you
Piping hot
But the table spoons are stained
And full of holes
I haven't changed the sheets since
Five weeks back
When you left us
I rip them into rags
Wind them round my chest
Like a bandage

Oh I build a porcelain castle
Of the cups you used to drink from
Oh I build a porcelain castle
On my dirty kitchen sink

I give a stranger on the street
All your clothes
And all unsent letters
That I wrote to you
You are sailing a white ship
While row row row row a boat
Everybody seems to know
That a father should protect his kids
It has turned the opposite way
They adore you still
While you left us here in badlands

Oh I build a porcelain castle
Of the cups you used to drink from
Oh I build a porcelain castle
On my dirty kitchen sink

There is only clear soup
In the pot
I left it on the stove for you
Piping hot
But the table spoons are stained
And full of holes

Oh I build a porcelain castle
Of the cups you used to drink from
Oh I build a porcelain castle
On my dirty kitchen sink

'''

Once I sang so many lullabies
For my kids
And made up bedtime stories
About you
I made you a hero
Oh I made you a king
Yes
We made you a hero
We made you a king
We made you into something big
