House of Pain

Buy House Of Pain on CD Baby or iTunes

I have been trying to leave you ever since
You caught me spying through the crack in your defense
I saw the victims of your terrible experiments
These half-mad half-dead half-beast half-men
Walking wounded and I know I'm next

Please don't take me to the House of Pain
I don't think that I could go through that again
I may be dumb, but I'm not very brave
But I've been there before and I don't want to go back again
Oh no no no no no no no no
Don't send me to the House of Pain

Just 'cause you're a genius is no excuse to give
For being mean to us, we only ask to live
And let live, ah but no instead we lie inside your lab
Jab by needles, stuck needles, stuck needles
Stuck in, stuck inside our heads

Please don't take us to the House of Pain
We will never misbehave again
We're just simple folk and not too big on brains
But we been there before and we know not to go back again
No no no no no no no no
Don't send us to the House of Pain

I love you truly, I know you think it's fun-
Ny but really I believe you could become
Someone easy to get on with if you'd do a little smiling
You should live a little laugh a little
Don't forget to cry a little too

Let me show through the House of Pain
You will never be the same again
It's time you try the other side for a change
You haven't lived 'til you've been to the House of Pain
(No so) I'll take you to the House of Pain
