"The Mansion" lyrics - MANCHESTER ORCHESTRA

"The Mansion"
(Andy Hull / Manchester Orchestra)

Oh mom my heart is so black
You find it insane to apologize for something like that
It won't revolve around me or how I fiend on almost
Every inappropriate thing

We know the guy that drew the map
But he's a graveyard away

He never wanted to stay

I was painted red
I never read the actual words and kind of faked it I guess
You say they called you no shoes
Man we all make mistakes
I swear to god it wasn't just you

I found the guy that found the map, he's going insane

He can't remember my name
He can't remember my name

And it was just like you said
We got back to the mansion, bowed both our heads
I saw that flash in the sky
And I recall you saying
"There's no one there but the devil and I"

I am the man who proved the map was wrong, it's never the same

It's undeniable change
It's undeniable change
What a deniable way
What a deniable waste
