Always wanted to
Track you down and hear the truth coming straight from you
Never knew where you had run
Your only son
The child you never knew, I could have been someone
And the only thing I'm sure of is you never cared
If you did you would have tried to be there
I wanna' tell you this

The home you left
That kept us warm
Those cracks appeared
In these walls
And the roof began to tumble down
Nobody there, no one around

Oh, this home you left
And now it's just a memory held to my regret
It's a house of the dead, yeah
A shrine to you
Nothing but a memory held instead of you
It's a house of the dead

Never realized
How much I missed with you not being there by my side
And no one there to tell me all the right from wrong
Kinda' made my own rules as I went along
And I always hoped that I would be the one
To mend the broken pieces of our empty home

I knew I'd let you down
I was selfish, I was a fool
All about me, just like you
And the cracks appeared
In these walls
And the roof began to tumble down, on this home you left

And now it's just a memory held to my regret
It's a house of the dead
A shrine to you
Nothing but a memory held instead of you
A house of the dead

Oh, this home you left
Now it's just pieces held to my regret
It's a house of the dead
A shrine to you
Nothing but dead thoughts of you

A house of the dead
A house of the dead
It's a house of the dead
A house of the dead
A house of the dead
