​The House Is Alive And The House Is Hungry

This song is by The Paper Chase and appears on the album Now You Are One Of Us (2006).

House comes alive, creeks and greets me
The house comes alive and it's hungry
The greedy gills will primp just like some whore
At the bris, at the wedding, at the funeral
My ghost will haunt your house, your dollhouse
'Cause what do they know, what do they know?
My inky hands will stain your blouse, the good blouse
What do they know, what do they know?

I want a man who splays down in the street
The swinging bodies and the children in the wet concrete
Sick sexual, another thimble full

I plan to haunt your house, you'll move out
'Cause what do they know, what do they know?
I'm a poltergeist here for life, she sighs
'Cause what do you know, what do you know?
What's this I hear, about you wanting out
Well what do they know, what do they know
I hear you were the life of the party
You know what do they know
We'll get you in the end

I want a man who splays down in the street
The swinging bodies and the children in the wet concrete
In the house with the laughing windows
We're spilling blood like a cheap innuendo

I love you, do you love me?
Let's set our hair on fire
Let's twist our bodies down over coals
Let's give them something they can't ignore
I love you, do you love me?
Let's set our house on fire
Let's cast a mirror right back at fear
Let's show this world we were here
