lyrics

THE HOUSE THAT FADED OUT

Bell rings, throw books at the door
Bell rings, drop cups on the floor
That’s where he lives and never gives
In the house that faded out

So many candles burn through the night
So many candles and still no light
That’s where he lives and never gives
In the house that faded out

They’re having a party
A political party
And they’re praying for mercy
But they won’t pay the bill

Heart aching through the night
So many hearts aching for a fight
Bell rings and the people shout
In the house that faded out

Braking in the new recruits
Pattern formed brings forth its fruits
Bell rings and the people shout
In the house that faded out

They’re having a party
A political party
And they’re praying for mercy
But they won’t pay the bill

(There’s no understanding if you don’t pay the bill)

So many candles burn through the night
So many candles and still no light
That’s where he lives and never gives
In the house that faded out

The place where the hip people meet is
Sixteen Infinity Street
Look for me and you’ll find me out
In the house that faded out

Because they’re having a party
A political party
And they’re praying for mercy
But they won’t pay the bill

Despite never quite cracking mainstream public consciousness, Blue Orchids endure as a living treasures of head music for post-punks, with a series of deeply-magical recordings.
