When you were looking
for the lost will
in the old mansion
tap tap the walls
inch by inch
the beautiful wainscoting

And listen for
the hollow sound
tap tap

She speaks through the walls
saying how to spend her money
She took some bad advice
Give it up, take it back, Give it up again
Whatcha gonna do when when there's nothing left
Nothing left for them
Be still my children
There's one thing you
gotta give them
Don't ????????

And listen for
the hollow sound
tap tap

Twenty-five years is a long time to be gone
even in the eyes of god-
damn it takes you so long
to realize
no one wants you here
I wonder why

    General CommentIt's "the beautiful wainscoting," and "she turns bad advice" should be "she took some bad advice." The part after "be still my children" is really hard, though.
