DOLLHOUSE LYRICS

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls,

(cry to neighbors to see what's happening)

We'll be a perfect family

(family pretends to be perfect on the outside)

When you walk away, is when we really play

(when they're away from everyone else its dysfunctional) 

You don’t hear me when I say

mom, please wake up, dads with a slut

(mom's drunk, dad's cheating)

And your son is smoking cannabis

(son resorts to drugs to escape)

No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens

Don’t let them see what goes down in the kitchen

Place, places, get in your places

Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces

(quick! Look like a normal family)

Everyone, thinks that we're perfect

Please don’t let them look through the curtains

Picture, picture smile for the picture

Pose with your brother wont you be a good sister?

(referring to everyone's oh-so-perfect family portrait. Like Pink's!)

Everyone thinks that we’re perfect

Please don't let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E

I see things that nobody else sees

(no body knows the daughters home life)

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E

I see things that nobody else sees

Hey girl, look at my mom, she's got it going on

Ha

You're blinded by her jewelry

(mom puts a fake smile on her face, hides what's really going on with her clothes and fancy jewelry)

When you turn your back, she pulls out a flask

(when no one's looking she gets drunk. Bottom's up!)

And forgets his infidelity

(mom drinks to forget her husband's cheating ways)

Uh-oh she coming to the attic

Plastic

Go back to being plastic

(in other words back to being fake)

No one ever listens, This wallpaper glistens

One day they'll see what goes down in the kitchen

Places, places get in your places

Throw on your dress, and put on your doll faces

Everyone thinks that we're perfect

Please don't let them look through the curtain

Picture, picture smile for the picture

Pose with your brother wont you be a good sister?

Everyone thinks that we’re perfect

Please don't let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E

I see things that nobody else sees

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E

I see things that nobody else sees

 

Hey girl, hey girl

Open the walls, play with your dolls

(please help me)

We'll be a perfect family

(we'll pretend to be happy again)

 

Places, places get in your places

Throw on your dress, and put on your doll faces

Everyone thinks that we're perfect

Please don't let them look through the curtain

Picture, picture smile for the picture

Pose with your brother wont you be a good sister?

Everyone thinks that we’re perfect

Please don't let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E

I see things that nobody else sees

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E

I see things that nobody else sees
