This is the house that booze built.

 

This is the pain that cements the house that booze built.

 

This is the family that is destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

These are the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

This is the father, who is possessed by the ‘spirits’

that caused the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

This is the mother, who loves the father

possessed by the ‘spirits’

that caused the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

This is the broken daughter who adores the mother

who loves the father possessed by the ‘spirits,

that caused the tears cried by this family

that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

This is the boy who picks up the pieces of the broken daughter

who adores the mother who loves the father

possessed by the ‘spirits’

that caused the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

These are the lies that the father tells

that make the boy pick up the pieces of the broken daughter,

who adores the mother who loves the father

possessed by the ‘spirits’

that caused the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.

 

These are the ‘spirits’ that flow from the bottle,

to create the lies that the father tells

that make the boy pick up the pieces of the broken daughter

who adores the mother who loves the father

possessed by the ‘spirits’

that caused the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built

 

This is the story of a man that chose

the ‘spirits’ that flow from the bottle

that created the lies that he told,

that made the boy pick up the pieces of the broken daughter

who adored the mother who always loved the father

possessed by the ‘spirits’

that caused the tears cried

by this family that’s been destroyed by the pain

that cements the house that booze built.
