The House We Grew Up In

The Official Website of Alistair Hennessey - Debut full length record, "The House We Grew Up In" out now on No Sleep Records.

"The Shameless"

Pardon me for saying this
but I've been 'round enough to know when someone's lying and you lie and you lie
You reek of shit and speak of even lesser things
Like you're proud of it

Shameless sham, sharped-dressed cheat of a man
who made a hell of a life
Now the liars and the cheap gather staring to the sea
Swallowed whole by the deep
Taste an honest breath of sleep
Now he sleeps

Fruitless, stagnant, foul up, wash out and drown now

The story goes their lips never close and
all your friends listen carefully
Bloated and bound by their words
Their poison but powerless
Choking on their words
But the masses heard them say


You know, yeah, I've heard a thing or two about the things that you
with your tailor made suits, your shame black and blue.  Yeah, well I've seen your teeth speak unspeakable things yeah, i've heard a thing or two about you and your friends and somebody said you said somebody said something true you forgot how to lie
Lay your battered, broken

This is the shame
This is the shame

The story goes their lips never close and
all your friends listen carefully
Mislead by a ghost
Their poison but powerless
Choking on their words
But the masses heard them say
