Lyrics

Suite of Lies

The warranty is over, owner's manual has expired
This house must be condemned says the builder I just hired
It's a renovation challenge it's a re-habber's delight
And when you see the roof you'll be paralyzed with fright

(chorus)
Contractors in my bedroom building dreams while I'm asleep
The promise of forgiveness moving walls I dare not keep
Even sandmen need a respite when they've crucified their lives
I'll be snoring way past breakfast in a hazmat suite of lies

There's a spirit in the kitchen there's an odd smell in the ducts
I keep waking in the daylight cause enough is not enough
There's been meeting after meeting and this job keeps going on
They've found sewerage in the closet and the plumber's been reborn

(bridge)
Electrician's now gone fishing for connections in my life
But most of them have frayed and my current aint quite right
There's a skylight in the attic letting only darkness in
There's a coastal view on Sundays but it's really just a whim

(chorus)
Contractors in my bedroom building dreams while I'm asleep
The promise of forgiveness moving walls I dare not keep
Even sandmen need a respite when they've crucified their lives
I'll be snoring way past breakfast in a hazmat suite of lies

Song grabs you and pulls you in with lyrics well written. Dark moody mellow journey of sound. Loved it.

This is a very clever tune.

I like the music. I don't care for the vocal tone. Not a bad voice, just a little creepy tone-wise.
