"House of Cards" as written by Isaac Russell, Joshua James and Mckay Stevens....
And this house is built of cards
And the earth is blowing way to hard
Oh because Dad won't stop drinking
And Mom won't stop cheating herself, the family and me

And so I lie beneath it all
Watch the king and his queen as they fall
They say that diamonds are forever
Well hearts aren't that clever
And the suits that we parade they don't mean a thing

But it's never us to blame
A new prescription with a different name
but it tastes the same
So we role the dice and play
Take our chances anyway
And if it starts they'll be
Banking on my love
One in ten can't save us from
The sad statistic that we've become
Seems they've already won

And now our home is growing cold
I look at you, you look at me
we turn and fold
Oh it seems that I can't stop drinking
and you, no, can't stop cheating
Yourself, and our family and me

But it's never us to blame
A new prescription with a different name
oh, but it tastes the same
So we role the dice and play
and take our chances anyway
And if it starts they will be
Banking on my love
One in ten can't save us from
The sad statistic that we've become
Seems they've already won
Seems they've already won

Oh Seems they've already won
