lyrics

WALLS, all these walls
Blockin out the sunbeams shinin'
Breakin up the fight
I'm hiding where the night can't find me
Smokin' out the light behind me
Wonderin how the stars keep shining oh so bright

WALLS, all these walls
Staggered bricks and tricks
And all this mortar holding tight
I'm climbing up and over
How my mind is goin slower
Please remind me when I'm sober
It was oh so nice

Pile the bricks in a mountain high
Hide the face of the evil eye
Burn the witches, clear the sky
Steady the horses, hear my cry
Like Xanadu, like Kublai Kahn
I'm rollin' up and off and I'm gone
I've seen the ghost of a grevious dawn
Held the host and I heard his song
Just turn me over again
Cause I'm done


Pile the bricks in a mountain high
Hide the face of the evil eye
Burn the witches, clear the sky
Steady the horses, hear my cry
Like Xanadu, like Kublai Kahn
I'm rollin' up and off and I'm gone
I've seen the ghost of a grevious dawn
Held the host and I heard his song

Bury the bridges, flood the fileds
Honour the edge of the sword that you wield
Scatter the ashes, raise the shields
Forge ahead in your boots of steel
Let all that past, let kingdom come
I'm runnin' back to the place where I'm from
I've seen the ghost of a deed undone
Held the host and it hurt and it stung
Just turn me over again
Turn me over again
Turn me over again
Cause I'm done
