I seen you running, going to and from the law
on the other side of town where you would never be seen before
your rebel brothers naked in the streets for all
you've never been so pulled, oh now you've got a cause to bleed for
you've never been so pulled, oh now you've got a cause to bleed for

I don't wanna live in the house where silence is a burden
I don't want to live in the house where your memories do all the talking
I've been a lonely man, it's me that you've deserted
whenever I get angry, in your model (?) face comes walking
to haunt me
to haunt me

it's like your namesake, right as rain and clear as snow
what kind of world did you grow up in my sweet girl?
a fighter to the end, the only thing you know
you've had a sad life, it's a crazy crazy mixed up world
you've had a sad life, it's a crazy crazy mixed up world now

I don't wanna live in the house where silence is a burden
I don't want to live in the house where your memories do all the talking
I've been a lonely man, it's me that you've deserted
whenever I get angry, in your model (?) face comes walking
to haunt me
to haunt me

you've had a normal life, I only wanna live
at the bottom of the ocean, with you in the blues and greens
you've had a normal life, I only wanna live
at the bottom of the ocean, with you in the blues and greens
at the bottom of the ocean, with you in the blues and greens

I don't wanna live in the house where silence is a burden
I don't want to live in the house where your memories do all the talking
I've been a lonely man, it's me that you've deserted
whenever I get angry, in your model (?) face comes walking
to haunt me
to haunt me

I could write a book about you
I could write a book about you
I could write a novel
telling all the ways you drive me wild

I could write a book about you
I could write a book about you
I could write a novel
telling all the ways you drive me wild

    General CommentCouldn't find the lyrics to this anywhere. This is what (I think) I heard but if anyone has corrections, have at it. Two lines I definitely wasn't sure about:

    "whenever I get angry, in your model(?) face comes walking" - it could be 'modern' or something else entirely

    "you've had a normal(?) life, I only wanna live" - this also sounded a bit like 'noble' but again it could be something completely different
