lyrics

Tried so hard to get away
From all the burdens that chip away
Everything that you could dream
Is right there in that house of leaves
As the day dissolves to black
And the memories rush back
Everything you could conceive
Is inspired by that house of leaves

Know that the empty will eat you up
Know that the void will spit you out
Know that your words will remain true
Know that it will find you

Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am!
Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am, I am I am!

Can you feel the shifting shadows
Marching solemnly towards gallows
Everything that you don't need
Is taken by that house of leaves
And every promise that you said
Is echoed by the broken dead
Everything that you believed
Is consumed by that house of leaves

Know that the empty will eat you up
Know that the void will spit you out
Know that your words won't remain true
Know that it will find you

Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am!
Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am, I am I am!

And everything for which you grieved
Has trapped you in that house of leaves

Know that the empty will grind you down
Know that the void won't let you out
Know that your words were never true
Know that it has found you

Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am!
Non sum qualis eram
I don't know who I am, I am I am!

Hallways, hallways, hallways leading down
Hallways, all ways, always leading down
Hallways, hallways, hallways leading down
Hallways, all ways, always leading down
Always, Always, Always...
