lyrics

Nightly dreaming brings to her the memory of her man
His weapons swept the land and then he passed away
For her it was a pay day
I won’t let them get to me - the family house aint what it used to be
Do I have to let them in? Do I have to change these plans?

This mystery house needs rebuilding
Lights overhead spell tragedy
This mystery house needs rebuilding
Death lines ahead spell tragedy

Stairs now lead on to dead end walkways - banisters go nowhere
Mrs. Winchester has put the legacy to use
Trapdoors, labyrinthine tunnels, so the ghosts can’t find her
The most haunted lady, now planning and aloof

There is nowhere on haunted hill that a spirit could possibly be
This mystery house needs rebuilding still
Lights ahead spell tragedy

Stairs now lead on to dead end walkways - banisters go nowhere
Mrs. Winchester has built a house of leaves you see?
Each maze needs a Minotaur, you only hear the growling
But the monster just can’t find her in a House of Stairs you see
