Dreaming of Glass Houses

My dream house just up and collapsed
due to a weakness in its foundations
maybe it was made of cards
and it wasn’t in them at all
but do you believe this would console?

Attached to this feeling
can’t tear away but
do I really want to, anyway?

My life has no life in it at all
I can’t seem to chase anything
there just is no pulse
Only ways to find others at fault
there just is no chase…

I’d fall asleep, but then
how will I know if it’s morning again?
Because light is deceptive
and I’m easily distracted
how did I even pay attention long enough to
keep doing what you want me to?

My life has no life in it at all
I can’t seem to chase anything
there just is no pulse
Only ways to find others at fault
there just is no chase…

…and without breaking a sweat
you ran away from me
and the worst thing yet
wasn’t that you got away
it was that so effortlessly
you took a hammer to
every brick I put up for your glass house
just to hear it breaking down

I search for my pulse
but it just doesn’t seem to be anywhere
I search for my pulse
but it just doesn’t seem to be anywhere
I search for my pulse
but it just doesn’t seem to be anywhere
and if it wasn’t here
what was it that you always raised?

My life has no life in it at all
I can’t seem to chase anything
there just is no pulse
Only ways to find others at fault
there just is no chase
there is no pulse

Without breaking a sweat
you threw the first brick
and the worst thing yet
was that you did it
just to hear my glass house
breaking down.
