lyrics

I am the wound you never knew was there

I am the tumor that just ran out of air

I am the mange that comes out in the rain

I am the strange taste he left in your mouth

I am the sad songs he sung for a while

I am the late nights you wondered about

And I know that every home has its secrets
Every house has its pests
And I guess I´m one of yours
Well I guess I´m one of yours

You were a rusty nail in my foot

You were a father figure

We never did each other any good

I was a loaded gun with no trigger

And I cried for the youth I hadn´t lost yet

And you cried for the comfort of your safety net

And we tried to pretend that it was something other than a

Dirty little secret

And like the mouse that nibbles at the wires
And like the possum that scratches at your tires
And like the termites that scuttle in the cellar
I am the one lie you will never tell her

´Cause every home has its creatures
And every house has its pests
And i guess i´m one of yours oh I guess I´m one of yours
