The House Jack Built

Written By Hetfield/Ulrich/Hammett

Open door, so I walk inside
Close my eyes, find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes just to have them close again
Well on my way, but on my way to where I've been
It swallows me as it takes me in its fog
I twist away as I give this world the nod

Open door, so I walk inside
Close my eyes, find my place to hide
And I shake as I take it in
Let the show begin

Open my eyes just to have them closed once again
Don't want control
As it takes me down and down and down again
Is that the moon or just a light that lights this dead-end street?
Is that you there or just another demon that I meet?

	The higher you are
	The farther you fall
	The longer the walk
	The farther you crawl
	My body, my temple
	This temple, it tilts
	Step into the house that Jack built
	
	The higher you are
	The farther you fall
	The longer the walk
	The farther you crawl
	My body, my temple
	This temple, it tilts
	Yes, this is the house that Jack built

Open door, yes, I walk inside
Swallow me so the pain subsides
And I shake as I take the sin
Let the show begin

	The higher you are
	The farther you fall
	The longer the walk
	The farther you crawl
	My body, my temple
	This temple, it tilts
	Yes, this is the house that Jack built
	
	The higher you are
	The farther you fall
	The longer the walk
	The farther you crawl
	My body, my temple
	This temple, it tilts
	Yes, I am, I am, I am

Open my eyes
It swallows me
Is that you there
I twist away
Away
Away
Away
