Houses of Stone

Little house of stone, little house of stone ain’t gonna… Big house of stone, big house of stone ain’t gonna…. No amount of stone, no big, big, wall is gonna save us from the fear that lives w/in us all.  You gotta tear down, tear down the walls.  You gotta tear down, tear down the walls.  You gotta tear down, tear down the walls and finally face the fear that lives within us all

Johnny was a school boy, uh, huh, you know a learn the golden rule boy.  Johnny took one look at Jules and knew he was in love.  Now Jules she was a tough girl and she ran with an out crowd.  She never seemed to need no one, so Johnny saw her around.  They live in houses of stone.  They build those walls all around. They live in two different worlds, on two sides of town.  They live in houses of stone and they don’t let no one in.  And they’ll never get out cause they never give in.

So Jules she sees this guy around but he ain’t like the kind she knows.  He drives the expensive car and he wears the trendy clothes. He live on the up town.     She live on the wrong side of town. They never thought that it could work, so they just see other around.   Around the houses of stone.     They build those walls all around.  They live in two different worlds and on two sides of town. They live in houses of stone but they don’t let no one in and they never get out cause they never give in. 

Now what if we lived our lives like those two ill-fated kids. Built those walls, around, to keep others from getting in.  What if we told ourselves stories, instead of learning truth. Maybe you’d miss out on me and I’d miss out on you… 

They live in houses of stone.  They built those walls all around. They live in two different worlds and on two sides of town.  They live in houses of stone and they don’t let no one in and they never get out cause they don’t ever give in, no they don't ever give in.  They never give in.    

Into those houses of stone, where they don’t let no one in.  They never get out cause they won’t ever give in.           

Little house of stone, little house of stone ain’t gonna…  Big house of stone, big house of stone ain’t gonna…. No amount of stone or no big, big wall  is gonna save us from the fear that lives within us all.
