"House of cards" en letras
Run and fool yourself, but in contrary to you tears are flowing when I cry, I am a man still I feel pain when I am bleeding, take what I can get, know the Bad and the Good, search for my enemies – search for them among my friends, see my shadow, why should I deny it?
Know my weakness and defend them with my strenght, stars fall and they are landing deep under the earth, brothers leave but they stay alive because I am thinking of them, hands do not always help you, we’ll soon see what is to become of everything, am I pawn or king, am I bishop or rook, because life will be over like a house of cards in storm.

Well life is a dream 'cause we're all walking in our sleep
You could see us stand in lines like we're dead upon our feet

Always forget how strange it is just to be alive at all
The melody of your voice, the smell of his perfume

The house of cards falls, and another one wait for me.
Your suit-case is on the doorstep.

[Verse III - Sido:]
I know how to break into your car, I know who steals your radio
I know you're getting on my nerves, I blow you down like a house of cards
I'm showing a tough stance, go tell everybody

When the walls fall down, can I be saved anymore?
Card by card, this house of cards falls
And I don't want to live in the ruins of a house
