House of Wax
by Paul McCartney

Lightning hits the house of wax
Poets spill out on the street
To set alight the incomplete
Remainders of the future

Hidden in the yard
Hidden in the yard

Thunder drowns the trumpets blast
Poets scatter through the night
But they can only dream of flight
Away from their confusion

Hidden in the yard
Underneath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all

Lightning hits the house of wax
Woman scream and run around
To dance upon the battleground
Like wild demented horses

Hidden in the yard
Underneath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all
Yeah

Hidden in the yard
Underneath the wall
Buried deep below a thousand layers lay
The answer to it all
Ooh...

In my opinion, this is the best song of the album. Along with Dance Tonight and Mr. Bellamy.  :)

Daniel Ford

The best thing is, he doesn't really understand the genius of the music he makes, he just has the idea to do it, and it sounds great. He once said about The Beatles' music: "If we knew what we were doing, we could never have written those songs." Most if not all of it is insticnt. That's what you call genius ;)

Macca plays the lead guitar. The second solo makes Clapton eat the dust!

Joy Stinson

Marco Zucchi , yep, Macca great lead a long time, taxman and pepper song...

Edward Sather

Spine chilling. The "wild demented horses"? A good one.

I don't believe I've ever heard a drum track like this one in any modern rock tune. Just like Paul... always inventing and then re-inventing music. People will be studying his music for hundreds of years into the future, like they study the compositions of Bach, Mozart or Beethoven today.

Rodney Punt

Wonderful sound-world. Spacious musical atmosphere. Sophisticated and appealing.

I can still remember listening to Memory Almost Full for the first time and House of Wax came on, I got a chill then just as I still do today. If this was a Beatle song, he would still be playing this today at every concert.

Roger J

That's actually Paul playing lead guitar on "House of Wax"

Simon

Nerdy note , before George joined the group back in the day , Paul was always the lead guitarist , he played bass because at the time George was much more accomplished . Mac has always been able to play six string. I'm sure you know but this isn't the first time he played every instrument on an album . 'Ist solo album ' + Ram and most of Band On The Run ' ...
