We were glass house girls in our plastic wigs and pearls
In a crazy house, from within and from without
You could see right through, see the things that people do
There's no place to hide when you're lit from the inside

Overblown
People like us from broken home
Never throw stones
Leave us alone

We were glass house girls, full of joie de vivre and verve
Built a house of glass out of fragments from the blast
When it's all revealed, must be seen to be believed
Little raincoat sisters weren't allowed to dream, made a new reality

People who live in glass houses know

Every glass house girl keeps a secret from the world
What do you think you see? A naive transparency?
On a stage of glass, how long can the play last?
You see, every glass house child has a trouble inside

Overblown
Little pieces of a broken dream
Scattered in a million different places
People who live in glass houses
People who live in glass houses know

Overblown
What do you think you see? A naive transparency?
On a stage of glass, how long can the play last?
