lyrics

In the houses of the sinners and the saints
I clawed the walls until I peeled the paint
Learning to tell what is true from what ain’t
But every time I found a light
It turned dim before my sight

In the cold back alleyways of broken glass
I searched amongst the bottles and the trash
For what I had discarded with a laugh
And how the cat plays with its twine
Is how the clock plays with my mind

But oh to be dancing
In an open space
Far from these haunted mansions
Here behind my face
The winding endless stairs
That lead me to nowhere
Man I gotta quit this place

From the lofty views of castle towers
Some man gaze triumphantly for hours
And some need no trophy for their powers
On the balconies of life
In the courtyards of their minds
