in the dining room
  1. she comes around (listen)
  2. when you came (listen)
  3. touch your neck (listen)
  4. people in grass houses (listen)
  5. slide composition (which accidentally recorded over the first take of right to cry) (listen)
  6. right to cry (listen)
she comes around (listen)

she's running wild
wild and free
I am wondering if she can be happy
still her visits light my fire
though in between it will burn down

still at least she comes around

she's glugging it down
knocking it back
I'm wondering if this will make her happy
still her laughter turns me on
even though she will fall down

still at least she comes around

when you came (listen)

when you came was up to you
and why I followed you'll never know
we lie in your arms in your bed in your house
I'm duly snared fair and square

you bitch you still scratch me

you had it worked out so carefully planned
here we lie hand in hand
but you failed at the test most easy of all
distracted I fear by your own screams through the wall

you bitch you still scratch me

you lie you lie a barren waste
I move away in subtle haste
considering your form you think it might work
you didn't count on one little jerk

you bitch you still scratch me

touch your neck (listen)

I saw in your eyes a look of fire
a deep-rooted desire
I assumed it was for me
and now I question the rules

then the wind caught your hair
and tossed it around in the air
I wish I was the wind
I would touch your neck
and feel your skin on mine

For days I looked the same
I looked out I looked in vain
I know it's not bad luck
It's just that there are no rules

then the wind caught your hair
and tossed it around in the air
I wish I was the wind
I would touch your neck
and feel your skin on mine

people in grass houses (listen)

people in grass houses shouldn't throw petrol bombs
they light the fire and they burn themselves
people with all their faults they shouldn't look to blame
the finger will return and even harsher flame

and all the while when you would sit in your chair
I can honestly say you were mostly never there

people they lie in bed and there are some who can sleep
and those who can't even weep
people with all their shame they just carry on
just the same as if nothing was forgone

and all the while when you would lie in my bed
I would lie if I left things unsaid

right to cry (listen)

I didn't mean to fall in love with you
didn't mean to turn things sour and blue
it's just that I read more than there was
I think it's just because

and wouldn't you say it was all washed up on that day
when like meets like and one must give way
wouldn't you say I had the right to cry
be so kind as to ask me why

and now that it's done can it be undone
it's like a rope around my throat
could these feelings could they die
would you tell me that's a lie

and wouldn't you say it was all washed up on that day
when like meets like and one must give way
wouldn't you say I had the right to cry
be so kind as to ask me why
