Fetchin Bones — Everybody Is A House lyrics

In my neighborhood, so familiar
No one can find me
The street is long, sometimes I'm lost
It's gravel, now hot coals
To run, to run to the door of my house
To the door of my house to turn the key

My house has teeth, it likes to stare
It grins and it sees I'm afraid
It knows too much about me
I need to rest to catch my breath
You blister my paint with the things you ain't
You peel my siding

Everybody is a house
Everybody needs a good hat
Everybody needs the soul of a good pair of shoes
Gimmie a roof, a hat on my head
Don't need a floor, my soul's got retreads
A house without windows is the whole wide world

My house has teeth, it likes to stare
It grins and it sees I'm afraid
It knows too much about me
I need to rest to catch my breath
You blister my paint with the things you ain't
You peel my siding

The hall is long, sometimes I'm lost
It's gravel, now hot coals
To run, to run to the door of my house
To turn the key
My house has teeth

Gimmie a roof, a hat on my head
My soul's got retreads
Everybody is a house
Everybody needs a hat
Everybody needs the soul of a good pair of shoes
Everybody is a house, everybody is a house
Everybody needs soul
