lyrics

We are the architects of our own destruction
We built these walls now watch us tear them down

Now we, we stand divided
But we can be united
If we can just defeat ourselves
These walls that now surround us
Will tumble down upon us
Leaving just ruins of this cell

So why does it still feel like
We’ve got our back
Up against the wall
We’ve got our back
Up against the wall

Prisoner inside our own head
Locked up, confined, neglected
Until we chip away these walls
Then we can feel the sunlight
Dark days will fill with bright lights
We’ll push the towers as they fall

Everything is flattened to the ground
Now it’s time to lay the new foundation

Break everything
Tear it all apart
Make a brand new start
Once you’ve laid the new foundation
Build away

Rebuild your life
Sometimes starting over means breaking boulders
To find the blocks you need
And this takes time
Don’t expect the change to be instantaneous
Take the time to feel
Sometimes it’s what you need
Take the time to feel
It’s time that sets you free
Sets you free

Now the past is scattered on the ground
Now it’s time to lay the new foundation

Break everything
Tear it all apart
Make a brand new start
Once you’ve laid the new foundation
Build away
Brick by brick
Build your walls again
And cement them in
With the past outside
The inside’s there to paint
Find colour again
As the light comes in
We’re the architects
Let’s build this life again
