House Of Cards (Phillips) 08/01/06

You drink fine wine lounging on your velvet couch
Gazing vaguely through the window at those below
They’re looking up wishing that they could be like you
But you’re living in a house of cards

Edge to edge they stand, two dimensional
Each one balanced so precariously
The courses climbing higher as if there was no end
Rising is the house of cards

‘Round and ’round they walk the grounds
Focusing their faith
Walls resound as trumpets sound
Shaking at the base

You drink fine wine lounging on your velvet couch
Gazing vaguely through the window at those below
You’ll be safe and sound in your Jericho
When the walls come tumbling down
