lyrics

WE BUILD WALLS
FOR ALL OUR FALLEN GLORIES,
BUILDING UP BONFIRES OF OUR DREAMS,
BUILT BY BRICK
THE FOUNDATIONS OF SLEEP,
BUILT SO HIGH JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.

RAISE THAT STONE,
BUT DO NOT ASK WHY
YOU HATE THAT STONE
SO MUCH THAT YOU NEGATE YOUR BONES
AND FLESH WERE CREATED IN HIS IMAGE RAISED
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.

LIFTING THE STONE TO BUILD THE PRISON THAT CONFINES YOU,
SPLITTING THE WOOD TO FIND THE EMPTINESS AROUND YOU,
GNASHING YOUR TEETH YOU WEEP THE WORDS YOU KNOW DEFINE TRUTH,
TEAR DOWN THE WALL THAT DIVIDES THE KINGDOM FROM MIND.

WE BUILD WALLS
FOR ALL OUR FALLEN GLORIES,
BUILDING UP BONFIRES OF OUR DREAMS,
BUILT BY BRICK
THE FOUNDATIONS OF SLEEP,
BUILT SO HIGH JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.
JUST TO TEAR IT DOWN.

LIFTING THE STONE TO BUILD THE PRISON THAT CONFINES YOU,
SPLITTING THE WOOD TO FIND THE EMPTINESS AROUND YOU,
GNASHING YOUR TEETH YOU WEEP THE WORDS YOU KNOW DEFINE TRUTH,
TEAR DOWN THE WALL THAT DIVIDES THE KINGDOM FROM MIND.

WE BUILD THE TEMPLE WITH FLESH OF OUR FATHERS WHO STARVE US AND FORCE US TO BECOME THEIR MARTYRS, SO NOW WE TEAR THESE TEMPLES DOWN. WE BUILD THE TEMPLE WITH BONES OF OUR MOTHERS, WHO NURTURE US ONLY TO HIDE US FROM OTHERS, SO NOW WE TEAR THESE TEMPLES DOWN.

GNASHING YOUR TEETH YOU WEEP THE WORDS YOU KNOW DEFINE TRUTH,
TEAR DOWN THE WALL THAT DIVIDES THE KINGDOM FROM MIND.
