"House Of Cards" as written by and Michael Trent/walker Robinson....
This house of cards you've built
Has finally fallen down
Expect me to come scrape
Your ego off the ground

Cause everybody talks
Everybody talks
And I can tell
That you can tell
What will you do when all of them
Want you, want you, want you around

Your little costume party's almost over now
Alone to momma's house
Before the sun goes down

Cause everybody talks
Everybody talks
Nobody's got a heart
To tear you all apart
And you can tell
That I can tell
What will you do when all of them
Want you, want you, want you around

And you can tell
That I can tell
What will you do when none of them
Want you, want you, want you around

Your 15 minutes are about
To just run out
Any of us to take you seriously now?

Cause everybody talks
Everybody talks
Nobody's got a heart
To tear you all apart

This house of cards you've built
Has finally fallen down

    General CommentMissing some lines:

    this house of cards you've built has finally fallen down
    (and I suppose that you) expect me to come scrape your ego off the ground

    ...

    your little costume party's almost over now
    (you know you better run) alone to mama's house before the sun goes down

    ...

    your fifteen minutes are about to just run out
    (and how do you expect) any of us to take you seriously now?

    Also I'm pretty sure it's always "what will you do when NONE of them want you" etc. but maybe I'm hearing it wrong :<

    Anyway I love the new album and this is one of my favorite songs off of it. It's about somebody who talks big because they're insecure about who/what they really are, so they build up a false image/persona (their house of cards) and they won't even take responsibility for the fallout when that eventually comes apart.
