Houses in Motion Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

For a long time I felt without style or grace
Wearing shoes with no socks in cold weather
I knew my heart was in the right place
I knew I'd be able to do these things

And as we watch him digging his own grave
It is important to know that was where he's at
He can't afford to stop, that is what he believe
He'll keep on digging for a thousand years

I'm walking a line, I'm thinking about empty motion
I'm walking a line, just barely enough to be living

Get out of the way, no time to begin
This isn't the time, so nothing was done
Not talking about, not many at all
I'm turning around, no trouble at all

You notice there's nothing around you, around you
I'm walking a line, divide and dissolve

Never get to say much, never get to talk
Tell us a little bit, but not too much
Right about then, is where she give up
She has closed her eyes, she has give up hope

I'm walking a line, I hate to be dreaming in motion
I'm walking a line, just barely enough to be living

Get out of the way, no time to begin
This isn't the time, so nothing was done
Not talking about, not many at all
I'm turning around, no trouble at all

I'm keeping my fingers behind me, behind me
I'm walking a line, divide and dissolve

I'm walking a line, visiting houses in motion
I'm walking a line, just barely enough to be living

Get out of the way, no time to begin
This isn't the time, so nothing was done
Not talking about, not many at all
I'm turning around, no trouble at all

Two different houses surround you, 'round you
I'm walking a line, divide and dissolve
