The House Was Awake

Subject: Crimson Peak (2015)
Title: The House Was Awake
Warnings/Notes: Contains spoilers and allusions to murder and incest. 8tracks stream and DL available.

American heiress and aspiring author Edith Cushing quickly falls for the mysterious stranger Sir Thomas Sharpe, newly arrived in town with his strangely possessive sister Lucille. After her father dies under suspicious circumstances Edith marries Thomas and is swept away to the family estate, a remote gothic mansion in the English countryside.

Allerdale Hall oozes blood red clay up through the floorboards from the mine below, breathes when the wind blows through the empty halls and is haunted by terrible ghostly apparitions. Edith must be brave and decipher the mysteries buried within the house and the secrets that the Sharpes are so desperate to hide if she is ever to survive Allerdale Hall; also known as Crimson Peak.

Various Storms & Saints by Florence The Machine
But still you stumble, feet give way
Outside the world seems a violent place
But you had to have him, and so you did
Some things you let go in order to live
While all around you, the buildings sway
You sing it out loud, "Who made us this way?"
I know you're bleeding, but you'll be okay
Hold on to your heart, you'll keep it safe
Hold on to your heart

Dark Waltz by Hayley Westenra
I'll keep you company
In one glorious harmony
Waltzing with destiny forever

Dance me into the night
Underneath the moon shining so bright
Turning me into the light

Butterflies by Sia
We've shared joy and we've shared pain
We've shared guilt and we've shared shame
We've bought into stupid games
We've freed each other and we laid claim

Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there

Because we came from the same cocoon

Tainted Love by Hannah Peel
Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away, I've got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a girl could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love (oh)
Tainted love

Afraid of the Dark by Phildel
Holding you close
Feels like a cut-throat
Losing blood, the weakness of
Falling in love

And I was never afraid of the dark
Until you
Oh, the weapon you make of my heart
And it’s true I was never afraid of the dark
Until you
Oh, the weapon you make of my heart

Bones by MS MR
Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone
Lost in the pages of self made cages
Life slips away and the ghosts come to play
These are hard times
These are hard times for dreamers
And love lost believers

Gaslight by Emilie Autumn
The wheels are turning
Broken machinery
It grinds below us
And all around I see
The crooked ceiling
The old familiar halls
The dirty paper
That’s covering the walls
The shattered staircase
The bed I’m bleeding in
We’ve tried to fight this
But we can never win

And in the gaslight
That brings both life and death
If it’s like last night
This could be my last breath
And so I hold tight to any hands I see
But nothing’s alright they’re always watching me
And no one’s coming, coming to take me home
And no one’s coming, coming to take me home

Secret by The Pierces
Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you
Then I know you
Won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead

Control by Halsey
They send me away to find them a fortune
A chest filled with diamonds and gold
The house was awake
With shadows and monsters
The hallways they echoed and groaned

I sat alone, in bed 'til the morning
I'm crying, "They're coming for me."
And I tried to hold these secrets inside me
My mind's like a deadly disease

I'm bigger than my body
I'm colder than this home
I'm meaner than my demons
I'm bigger than these bones

And all the kids cried out,
"Please stop, you're scaring me."
I can't help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?
