Lyrics

HOUSE MONEY
Copyright 2017
Parvin & Patterson

I come from a place where life is cheap
Where graves are shallow and the hate runs deep
If it can kill you I've done it twice
I send fools to their paradise

Chorus:
Oh exaltation - at the gates of Hell
For the soldier of fortune and the infidel
I don't bend, I don't bow
I'm playing with house money now

I fought in the dust of the desert and dunes
Laid waste to the temple, left it in ruins
I live in the shadow of the burned and the black
Feel the heat from the blast but I never look back

Oh proclamations - from the gates of Hell
The moan of the drone and the toll of the bell
They don't bend, they don't bow
They're playing with house money now
House money now...

I go to a place where all debts are paid
Deeds are recorded and words are weighed
You won't find it in your book of prayers
But I'd bet your life that I will see you there

Oh salutations - from the gates of Hell
No sanctuary in the citadel
We don't bend, we don't bow
We're all playing with house money now
House money now yeah...
