House of Trouble
Lyrics by Joe Hayes


Deep roots hold onto the soil
Shallow thinking a dust bowl
No prophets for the future
Heirs to claim a broken kingdom

House of Trouble
Sliding down
Weak constitution
Holds no sway
House of cards
Is blowing away

Stacks unload on the blue sky
Full speed into the black
Coffers are overflowing
But we are choking in the darkness

House of Trouble
Sliding down
House of Trouble
Cracked foundation
Shift in the clay
House of bricks
Is crumbling away
Weak constitution
Holds no sway
House of cards
Is blowing away

Heavy water wash away
Scar the bed and feed the bank
Strip the land - erode the clay
And the heavy water eats away

Caustic reign is trickling
Roar of a silent spring
The ships have all come in
Funny that now the fleet is sinking

House of Trouble
Sliding down
House of Trouble
Cracked foundation
Shift in the clay
House of bricks
Is crumbling away
Weak constitution
Holds no sway
House of cards
Is blowing away

Clatter is a rhythm section run amok – this world-touring bass and drum duo explores a maximalist approach to hard rock with pop surprises; like hard candy with a soft center.
