Deer Tick - Card House Lyrics




If I lose another pound
I'm heading underground
I'm out of place in my own skin
How the pit of my heart
Got its pitiful start
Well, we may always ponder that

Pass the bomb from one to the other
We're in love it's the only bother
Once upon a time we had lightning in a bottle
Now next time you tip the bottle up you'll see it's running dry

Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
I'll make all the walls fall down
You can sail away on the finest timbers
I can run your ship aground

Chills down your spine and a
Mouthful of flies and you
Cannot identify the cause
But everybody knows
You've been too long exposed
To my cellular assaults

Taking turns to scrape the bottom
We're so in love in tainted waters
Once upon a time we had lightning in a bottle
Now next time you tip the bottle up you'll see it's running dry

Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
I'll make all the walls fall down
You can sail away on the finest timbers
I can run your ship aground

Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
I'll make all the walls fall down
You can sail away on the finest timbers
I can run your ship aground

Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
I'll make all the walls fall down
You can sail away on the finest timbers
I can run your ship aground

Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
I'll make all the walls fall down
You can sail away on the finest timbers
I can run your ship aground

    If I lose another pound
    I'm heading underground
    I'm outta place in my own skin
    How the pit of my heart got its pitiful start
    Well, we may always ponder that
    Pass the buck [?] from one to the other
    So in love its the only bother
    Once upon time we had a lightning in a bottle
    Now next time you tip the bottle up you see its running dry
    Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
    I'll make all the walls fall down
    You can sail away on the finest timbers
    I can run your ship aground
    Chills down your spine and a
    Mouth full of flies and you
    Cannot identify the cause
    But everybody knows
    You've been too long exposed
    To my cellular assault
    Take a turn to scrape the bottom
    So in love in [?]
    Once upon time we had a lightning in a bottle
    Next time you tip the bottle up you see its running dry
    Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
    I'll make all the walls fall down
    You can sail away on the finest timbers
    I can run your ship aground
    Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
    I'll make all the walls fall down
    You can sail away on the finest timbers
    I can run your ship aground
    Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
    I'll make all the walls fall down
    You can sail away on the finest timbers
    I can run your ship aground
    Once you put the roof on the top of your card house
    I'll make all the walls fall down
    You can sail away on the finest timbers
    I can run your ship aground
