House Jack Built Lyrics

by Metallica

Open doors, so I walk inside
Close my eyes, find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close again
Well on my way
Well on my way to where I graze

It swallows me
As it takes me in his home
Hmm, I twist away
As I kill this world, no, no

Open doors, so I walk inside
Close my eyes, find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes
Just to have them close once again
Don't want control
Aye, as it takes me down and down
And down again, well

Is that the moon
Or just a light that lights this dead end street?
Aah, is that you there
Or just another demon that I meet?

The higher you walk, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple it tells
"Step into the house that Jack built"

The higher you walk, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple it tells
"Yes, this is the house that Jack built", yeah

Open door as I walk inside
Swallow me, so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take this in

Let the show begin
Let the show begin
Let the show begin

The higher you walk, the farther you fall
The longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple it tells
"Yes, this is the house that Jack built"

The higher you walk, the farther you fall
Longer the walk, the farther you crawl
My body, my temple, this temple it tells
"Yes, I am, I am, I am"

Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there?
Hmm, I twist away
Away, away, away
