I wonder, can you daydream at night?
Lying awake, I've had too much time.
I'm watching picture shows in the shadows,
'Dance for the crowd tonight.'
Imagination is such a vivid place to hide
While stars watch over you.

Through silent homes, the lights are out but I walk these halls
The way I've walked before,
Sleeping with saints and apparitions between the walls.
The lights are out but I walk these halls.

I promised not to wake you, so I'll walk light
Just so you can hear the rats in the roof
And the termites in the ceiling.
We'll hear everything except what we need to hear.
Sleeplessness is for the restless, and I'm just fine.
Left to wander, aimless in unconsciousness.

There's spiders crawling in the corners of my eyes.
Let them weave their little webs to snatch the sunlight from the lens.
I'm staring at the ceiling because I'm fed up with the sight.
Weigh my eyelids back to sleep, sealed by silken silver threads
While stars watch over you.

Cast the sheep out of your mind, count the wolves and we'll sleep tonight.

I stumble in and I stumble out of unfamiliar rooms in foreign houses,
But I'm at home. I'm a ghost that left behind his sheets, unrequited
Until I wake up somewhere I know that I've never been.

I'll stay till sleep takes over you.
I'll walk while stars watch over you.

Hands like Houses has to be one of the most underrated band even by Australia's standards of under achieving

I have listened to this song easily over a hundred times since it first came out and I'm also very familiar with Jonny's voice having been a fan of him for 6 years but to this day I still can not tell which part he sings in during this song. It drives me fucking insane

This will always be the best song Hands Like Houses will ever make. I love all their stuff since, but nothing compares to this song.

When the whole band sings...

Don't understand why This Ain't No Place For Animals was chosen over this for Ground Dwellers lead single. This song is SO much better. I know this phase is kind of dying but when this blend of Alt Rock and Post-Hardcore is done well, it sounds fantastic. Reminds me so much of Saosin <3
