broken buildings

lyrics

on blackened pavement with cracks in the sidewalks
i stand and wonder if buildings could talk
i'd ask them why they suffer, why no one seems to care
they'd say all their hopes and dreams are like castles in the air

but i've found a better way
pack all your things and we'll leave town
'cause we won't be heading back
no we can't ever turn around

come on get down
you're the one i've waited for
tonight's the night we use our plan of attack
come on sweetie
you're the one worth fighting for
we'll take the world by storm and never look back

a fresh coat of paint can cure this ill
and breathe life into a winter chill
maybe we need more than paint, these walls deserve the best
cut out every broken board and hand them to the guests

fill in the empty gaps
with wood from trees we chopped ourselves
replace the worn with new
we'll build the tallest bookshelves

come on get down
you're the one i've waited for
tonight's the night we use our plan of attack
come on sweetie
you're the one worth fighting for
we'll take the world by storm and never look back

but i, no i don't wanna leave before i fix this place
i'll stand out from the crowd
and i, no i can't wait around and watch the world collapse
this town is screaming loud x2

come on get down
you're the one i've waited for
tonight's the night we use our plan of attack
come on sweetie
you're the one worth fighting for
we'll take the world by storm and never look back

(we'll leave this town
we'll build from ground
we will pull down
the tallest clouds)
