A different family name now on the massive door
But I'm so drunk, I still believe the house is yours
A senseless act of vengeance is what I've decided upon

But for far too long I thought you were with me
Your parents & the authorities against your loyalty
But I've come to my senses now, you are just as bad or worse

Alone in this evil dream
Here with oil & matches
Flicker when I think of you
I often do

I'm one of the falling leaves
Covering your garden
Blackened by neglect from you
I fell right through

It was the circumstances - a shattered home
What followed was just consequences & no matter what you've been told
Betrayed & ejected, I was forced into this role

Oh, for far too long I thought you were with me
My senses under their surveillance, but now I'm free
& now I'm back to show you just what became of me

Alone in this evil dream
Here with oil & matches
Flicker when I think of you
I often do

I'm one of the falling leaves
Covering your garden
Blackened by neglect from you
I fell right through
