"In The House Of Numbers" as written by Brett Anderson, Leo Abrahams, Leo Ross and Seb Rochford....
Windows broken from inside they break the silence in me,
Her tyres scraping in the drive behind the palace of the trees,
Come taste the orange blossom, come and shake the orange blossom,
Paper cuts and ancient bones and pagan imagery,
Behind her palaces of stone things are not the way they seem,
Come taste the orange blossom, come and shake the orange blossom
A diamond is to buy her, a heart is to adore her,
a club to paralyse her, a spade is to destroy her,
there's no way inside, no way inside...
A heraldry of broken names, a tattered ancestry,
Assassins sitting in their frames who brought the family to it's knees,
It defines her life,
A diamond is to buy her, a heart is to adore her,
A club is just to club her, a spade is to destroy her,
There's no way inside but you'll find me in the house of numbers
