Tear It Down
Lyrics
(Whisper: Tear It Down; Shout: Hey you, over there... grab that ax, grab that shovel ... let's go to work)

The weather's fine, why do you ask?
Has talking to me become such a task?
Your lips, they move, but they don't say too much
Your body speaks, but I don't feel your touch
You say I'm proud, I say I'm not
Then you laugh at what we vowed and you say our love is shot
We build this wall, up to the sky
We've gotta tear it down (Tear It Down)

You say you've gotta go, it's getting late
Well what's so important now that it can't wait?
And what's it like when you're not with me?
Is someone touching you there (where?), well I can't see
You say I'm scared, I say I'm not
Then you laugh that I should care who will next fill that slot
We build this wall, up to the sky
We've gotta tear it down (Tear It Down)
We've gotta tear it down

Tear it down, don't build that wall so high
Tear it down, don't let our love just die
Tear it down, don't build that wall so, don't build that wall so high...
We've gotta tear it down (Tear It Down), We've gotta tear it down, Well let's go!!!(guitar solo)
We've gotta tear it down

You say I'm scared, I say I'm not
Then you laugh that I should care who will next fill that slot
We build this wall, up to the sky, we've gotta tear it down
(Tear It Down)

We've gotta tear it down, we've gotta tear it down (Tear It Down)
We've gotta tear it down, tear it down
