The sun is up and the shades are all pulled down
I'm more paranoid with every little sound
Like the leaf blower blowing the leaves around
And a siren wailing on the other side of town

Oh, the TVs on and the color's really hurtin' my head
If I could think straight I'd wish that I was dead
Or curled up naked in my lover's bed
Instead I'm hanging over Hell suspended by a single thread

And I don't recall who said it at this time
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
I built it up and the wolf, he came around
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed and the house fell down

With a rolled up note I'm hovering on that line
Three days on a diet of cocaine and wine
And a little weed just to level me sometime
I put the clock in the drawer 'cause I've put out the time

And still that saying gets inside my mind
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
I built it up and the wolf, he came around
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed and the house fell down

So don't knock on my door, don't try to call
I'm holed up in this room talking to the wall
'Cause when you're high as this you think you know it all
When you're this deep in there's no place else to fall, upon me gal

And I don't recall who said it at this time
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
I built it up and the wolf, he came around
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed and the house fell down

And still that saying gets inside my mind
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
I built it up and the wolf, he came around
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed and the house fell down
And the house fell down
