  • There's a killer, there's a killer
    There's a killer coming down
    It sounds just like a whisper
    From the corner of her pretty miles
    You can't run like this forever
    Your engine will break down
    Besides that snowy river
    That leaves into the ground

    You're building glass houses on the sand
    Then you stand around and shake your head
    When they all fall down

    Some damage here, some damage there
    Something's lost, but nothing's found
    You just build yourself another
    A little further down

    There's a murder, there's a murder
    There's a murder going mad
    It happens all 'round you
    But no one makes a sound
    Cause you're the one who's dying
    You handle me so proud
    Besides that snowy river
    That knows you, knows my half

    You're building glass houses on the sand
    Then you stand around and shake your head
    When they all fall down

    Some damage here, some damage there
    Something's lost, but nothing's found
    You just build yourself another
    A little further down

    You just build yourself another one
    A little further down Writer/s: JOSHUA SCOTT JONES
