time to leave this house

It’s time to leave this house
all ragged and sore
I’ve lived here too long
it’s not me anymore

Though i laughed here once
it was a long time ago
Before the roof caved in
and i wanted to go

The rooms are all hidden
in the dirt and the dark
And somewhere inside here
the black eyed dog barks

If i can just find the way
i shall take it for sure
I shall leave this old  place
and deadlock the door

I’ll walk down the street
and look back just once more
To see where i lived
and what it’s all for
