lyrics

I live inside a house of glass, and I'm
Waiting for a storm to pass
To blow in these fragile walls
I'm counting down a numbered list, and a
Rock is clutched in my fist
To shatter these fragile walls

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones
But what if I'm trapped? What if I'm alone? and
What if a rock is my only way out
What if there's no room for doubt
To break these walls, I'll throw this stone

You always said that you'd be back
But your words only left the glass cracked
You ran off to your house of stone
Without hesitation, you left me here
Along with everything that you once held dear
Now you're happy, and I'm alone

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones,
But what if I'm trapped? What if I'm alone? and
What if a rock is my only way out,
What if there's no room for doubt
To break these walls, I'll throw this stone

That crack in the glass loomed over my head
It taunted me with possibility
Made me think that maybe the rock in my hand
Was the key to being free

They say people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones,
But what if I'm trapped and alone?

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones,
But what if I'm trapped? What if I'm alone? and
What if a rock is my only way out
What if there's no room for doubt?

What if it's raining, and what if I'm cold?
What if there's sunshine across the threshold?
To break these walls, to break these walls
To break these walls... I'll throw this stone.
