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 greyest shade of green the earth has ever seen"

You came in with two guns blazing and a bite like a snake. Got 'em shaking in their boots.
This town knows you; steady shot with a piss-wisky chase.  The original outlaw, quick draw
Spur of a brawl.  And so the bandit rides on, dead or alive all along.  All along a fucking scoundrel

Bury your head and your tragic heart in your hands
Cuz it gets much fucking worse

Oh, you'd think you were bluer than the sea
The greyest shade of green
The greyest shade of green

Nothing left, nothing left to do
So we say, so we say
Nothing left, nothing left to lose
Except the discontent you made home.

Exactly where you stood, passing through just like you knew you would.
A bullshit bruise, a bullshit hue of black and blue
A rogue red ocean, footloose stray
Ores in, rudder broken
Cannons loosen up the jib you flew

Bury your head and your tragic heart in your hands
Cuz it gets much fucking worse

Oh, you'd think you were bluer than the sea
The greyest shade of green
The greyest shade of green

Soon we'll prove restless hearts won't move


Restless hearts will beat themselves to death
(They break, they shake, they break)
Home is where your heart breaks, home is where your heart breaks
Home is old and I'm so fucking bored
Desperate hole of anything that makes
(They break, they shake, they break)
Home is where your heart breaks, home is where your hands shake
Home is old, goddamn these fucking doors
Wreckless hearts will beat themselves to death...

Oh, you'd think you were bluer than the sea
The greyest shade of green
The greyest shade of green
