This is the place you'll end up when you lose the chase
Where you're dragged against your will
From a basment on the hill
And all anybody knows is you're not like them
And they kick you in the head
And send you back to bed
Isolation pulled you passed a tunnel to a bright world
Where you can make a place to stay
But everybody's scared of this place
They're staying away
Your little house on memory lane
The mayor's name is fear
His voice patrols the pier
From a mountain of cliche
That advances everyday
The doctor spoke of cloud
He reigned out loud
"you'll keep the doors and windows shut
And sware you'll never show a soul again"
But isolation pushes you 'til every muscle aches
Down the only road it ever takes
But everybody's scared of this place
They're staying away
Your little house on memory lane
If it's your decision
To be open about yourself
Be careful or else
Be careful or else
I'm comfortable apart
It's all written on my chart
And i take what's given me
Most cooperatively
I do what people say
And lie in bed all day
Absolutely horrified
I hope you're satisfied
Isolation pushes past self-hatred, guilt and shame
To a place where suffering is just a game
But everybody's scared of this place
They're staying away
You're little house on memory lane
Youre little house on memory lane
