Lyrics

I spent my whole life on you
And I built you a gorgeous house
To put up with your bitched mouth
And I've thrown all my dreams right out
And I'm so selfless here, I'm so selfless here
There's a cloud in my head
I'm so selfless here

What do you want from me?
I've buried my own babies
I live all alone in this empty house
I've thrown all my dreams right out
And I'm so lonely here, I'm so lonely here
There's a cloud in my head
I'm so lonely

So I tend the garden
Build the stone wall
What are you hiding?
Is it something dirty?
Where's the baby, who'll hold the baby?
You touched the baby, you must be crazy
I touched the baby, I must be crazy
Hid in the tower
Rot in the tower
For all I care 'cause I hate you so
How I hate you so
Wooden Church protect me
How I hate you so

Are we leaving, are we ever leaving?
We've got black spots in our eyes
Are we ever leaving?
I never meant to hurt anyone
I'll punch holes into the walls
But I never ment to hurt anyone
No one is perfect
I know no one is perfect
We've got wholes in our hearts
No one is perfect
