House Of Glass Lyrics

We were glass house girls
In our plastic wigs and pearls
In a crazy house
From within and from without
You could see right through
See the things that people do
There’s no place to hide
When you’re lit from the inside

Overblown

People like us
From broken homes
Never throw stones
Leave us alone

We were glass house girls
Full of joie de vivre and verve
Built a house of glass
Out of fragments from the blast
When it’s all revealed
Must be seen to be believed
Little raincoat sister
Weren’t allowed to dream
Made a new reality

People who live in glass houses

No

Every glass house girl
Keeps a secret from the world
What d’you think you see
A naive transparency?
On a stage of glass
How long can the play last?
(You see) every glass house child
Has a trouble inside

Overblown

Little pieces of a broken dream
Scattered in a million different places

People who live in glass (houses)
People who live in glass (houses)

No (No)

Overblown
What d’you think you see
A naive transparency?
On a stage of glass
How long can the play last?
