House Of Pain

House of Pain

A little past suppertime
I’m still out on the porch step sitting on my behind,
Waiting for you.

Wondering if everything is alright.
Momma said, “Come in boy, don’t waste your time.” I said, “I’ve got time.
Well, he’ll be here soon.”

Five years old and talking to myself.
Where were you? Where’d you go?
Daddy, can’t you tell?

I’m not trying to fake it
And I ain’t the one to blame.
There’s no one home
In my house of pain.
I didn’t write these pages


And my script’s been rearranged.
No, there’s no one home
In my house of pain

Wasn’t I worth the time?
A boy needs a daddy like a dance to mime and all the time
I looked up to you.

I paced my room a million times.
And all I ever got was on big line, the same old lie.
How could you?

Well, I was eighteen and still talking to myself.
Where were you? Where’d you go?
Daddy can’t you tell?

I’m not trying to fake it
And I ain’t the one to blame.
There’s no one home
In my house of pain
I didn’t write these pages
And my script’s been rearranged.
No, there’s no one home
In my house of pain

And I’m alone again.

The October round of The Liaison Collaborative has begun and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Child’s Play’ pose/prop gacha set. You’ll be playing for one of the 14 poses with props that you can use anywhere. They’re all just added to your avatar for easy posing. It’s another wonderful set with intricate bento poses perfectly matched with props that have a certain innocent creepiness to them. TLC runs until October 26.

Somebody’s Watching Me

Somebody's Watching Me

Who’s watching?
Tell me who’s watching
Who’s watching me?

I’m just an average man, with an average life
I work from nine to five; hey hell, I pay the price
All I want is to be left alone in my average home
But why do I always feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone, and

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me is it just a dream?

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone I’m trying to avoid
Well, can the people on TV see me
Or am I just paranoid?

When I’m in the shower
I’m afraid to wash my hair
‘Cause I might open my eyes
And find someone standing there
People say I’m crazy
Just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of
“Psycho” too much
That’s why

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

Who’s watching me?
I don’t know anymore
Are the neighbors watching?
Who’s watching?
Well, it’s the mailman watching me
(Tell me who’s watching me)
And I don’t feel safe anymore
Oh, what a mess I wonder who’s watching me now
(Who?) the IRS?

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me it is just a dream

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Woh, I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me it can’t be
I always feel like somebody’s watching me

Somebody’s Watching Me‘ ~Rockwell~

You can probably guess who’s watching me, that’s Vrir standing close by at Hazardous.  I’m wearing the ‘Claire Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* here and it’s a beauty.  The perfectly shaped bodice and the curve enhancing skirt, which, Annie says,  is inspired by Claire’s dress from Outlander.  It comes in 24 colours with the straps HUD driven for colour change and is fitted for the Maitreya(Lara/Petite), SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya), and Legacy mesh bodies.  It’s available now at FaMESHed.

I’m wearing the ‘Eternity’ hair from TRUTH Hair.

Life Is A Highway

Life is a Highway

Love’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside every darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where the brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate
Break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

Through all these cities and all these towns
It’s in my blood and it’s all around
I loved you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hills
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver’s lights
Knock me down, back up again
You’re in my blood; I’m not a lonely man
There’s no load I can’t hold
Road so rough; this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long (gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, yeah!)
If you’re going my way
I wanna drive it all night long

There was a distance between you and I
A misunderstanding once
But now we look it in the eye (oh!)

There ain’t no load that I can’t hold
Road so rough, this I know
I’ll be there when the light comes in
Just tell ’em we’re survivors

Life Is A Highway‘ ~Tom Cochrane & Red Rider~

*Just BECAUSE* is in this round of ~uber~ and is offering the ‘Mili Top & Skirt’. It’s available with a print pack with autumn and Halloween prints, which is included with the fatpacks or separately. The top and skirt are sold individually and both are rigged to fit Maitreya(Lara/Petite), SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya), and Legacy mesh bodies.

I’ve added the ‘Lover’s Knot’ necklace from AVAWAY.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Fyn’ set from Ana Poses.

I’m at Grauland for this one.

Can’t Be Tamed

Can't Be Tamed

For those who don’t know me,
I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way,yep
24 hours a day
‘Cause I’m hot like that

Every guy, everywhere
Just gives me mad attention
Like I’m under inspection
I always get a ten,
‘Cause I’m built like that

I go through guys like money
Flyin’ out the hands
They try to change me
But they realize they can’t
And every tomorrow is a day I never plan
If you’re gonna be my man understand

I can’t be tamed
I can’t be tamed
I can’t be blamed
I can’t, can’t, I can’t, can’t be tamed
I can’t be changed
I can’t be tamed
I can’t be, can’t, I can’t be tamed

If there is a question about my intentions,
I’ll tell ya
I’m not here to sell ya
Or tell you to go to hell
(I’m not a brat like that)
I’m like a puzzle
But all of my pieces are jagged
If you can understand this,
We can make some magic,
I’m wrong like that

I wanna fly,
I wanna drive,
I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don’t know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby, by now you should know

Well I’m not a trick you play,
I’m wired a different way
I’m not a mistake,
I’m not a fake,
It’s set in my DNA
Don’t change me
Don’t change me
Don’t change me
Don’t change me
(I can’t be tamed)

Can’t Be Tamed‘ ~Miley Cyrus~

This pose is from the ‘Breathing Space’ set from Le Poppycock.

The ‘LoverBody’ and ‘LoverStockings’ are both from DEAD DOLL.

Let’s not make this
Complicated
I know you
Last night I had the
Strangest dream
That you knew me, too

Oh you need to wake up
I can’t have you disappear
Just like my parents house
I’ve become, a visitor

In the night you say
That you go underwater
You won’t take me, no
You won’t drown with your lover

You told me that I wasn’t available
I guess I wasn’t, I wasn’t capable
I want to do better this time
But I think you’re better in the back of my mind

Oh you need to wake up
I can’t have you disappear
Just like my parents house
I’ve become, a visitor

My mother said I was always afraid of the dark
But I’m not, I don’t mind
Having a ghost in my bed

My mother said I was always afraid of the dark
But I’m not, I don’t mind
Having a ghost in my bed

(This time your door is open)

My mother said I was always afraid of the dark
But I’m not, I don’t mind
Having a ghost in my bed

(This time your door is open)

My mother said I was always afraid of the dark
But I’m not, I don’t mind
Having a ghost in my bed

(This time your door is open)

My mother said I was always afraid of the dark
But I’m not, I don’t mind
Having a ghost in my bed

(This time your door is open)

My mother said I was always afraid of the dark
But I’m not, I don’t mind
Having a ghost in my bed

Visitor‘ ~Of Monsters And Men~

I’m at Walsh County for this picture, it’s a very simple sim……fields and a dirt road, it feels like home for me since I live in an area predominantly fields and dirt roads.

I’m using a pose and crow prop from the ‘Edgar’ set of poses from WetCat.
