Recorded at Hob Junker Studios, Galway

lyrics

Rip the tongues from their mouths
Silent no doubt
Cat's got it now
Won't give it back
Mommy's in the corner
Grinning at the wall
Daddy's in the parlour
Beating on his drum

And it's you and me and me and you
And we are free to hide the truth
Build a house of cards
On a bed of lies
Bleed this city dry

Spend our days telling stories of old
I'll paint you black
You colour me gold
Dreams of disco days
Carefree ways
Trapped in timeless tellings of our youth

And it's you and me and me and you
And we are free to hide the truth
Build a house of cards
On a bed of lies
Bleed this city dry

The carcass of his life
Is rotting slowly on the ground
No beauty, no joy
In her cacophony of sound
In the midst of all this clamour
What would people say?
Slowly takes a hammer
And he tap tap taps away

He tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap
Tap tap taps away
He tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap
Tap tap taps away

And it's you and me and me and you
And we are free to hide the truth
Build a house of cards
On a bed of lies
Bleed this city dry
