Burned Down

Burned down but not forgotten
The walls were sturdy but the floor was rotten
Men like phantoms moving in the cold
Men like phantoms move - well

{Chorus}

This is the house that silence built
This is the place where she takes her shelter
I know the game she plays
Lays down the hand that a hard life dealt her

Mule Skinner you can call this house your home
You come a stranger but you seldom leave alone
Standing on the edge of a dying hour
They were standing on the edge – well

{Chorus}

Raise high the roof beams everyone
Choose your words wisely and be done
Hearing accusations from yourself
You can hear them from yourself – well

{Chorus}

Standing on the slope of an icy roof
You amble out but the answers are aloof
A month of hungry Sundays in a row
You can find them in a row – well

{Chorus}

{Chorus}
