These words find their place in the song, “If This House Fails,”
“And if this house fails should we just rebuild
By the shade tree on the hill where we can see
The grass is greener there
And there’s cleaner air
And there’s no trace of our careless history
I’m a crash and a burn away from being in love
I’m midnight kiss away from being someone
Your mother needs you now ’cause your father tuned her out
Everyone you love doesn’t try enough
If you want me now come and get me now
And if you don’t, quit pretending that you do
The flies on the wall want a curtain call
For the stories that they broke and the hearts too…”
