Straw House

Knock three times and blow your house down
Watching you scratch from atop the cloud
Open up and watch them all drown
I'm screaming without making a sound

All I wanted was a piece
All I needed was to hear
All I got was rot and disease
All you had was the fear
I'd find you out

Snap your fingers and my attention breaks
Demanding more than what it takes
Hold back the rage till my eyes leak
Slam the door and toss the key away

All I wanted was a ghost
All I needed was a hand
All I got was codependence
All you had to do was understand
What I can't live without

Distant keys
Strike memories
Times dead
Lies fed

Skies fall
Angels crawl
God fled
It's time you bled

Count to ten and squeeze the pillow tighter
Life's like pulling the bandaid too slow
But daddy raised a fighter
They can't judge what they don't know

All I wanted was a peace
All I needed was to see
All I got was time and distance
All you needed was to be

All you needed was to be
