Lyrics

This castle I built with these walls so tall
Each year the trees grow I can’t see anymore
My skin the veneer I wear, it cracks it sheds it falls
Protecting, isolating, so macho, such a foil
Once I loved my sabotage was cruel and veiled
A king I’m not my queen well you’ve got calmer seas to sail
Love still lives, it simmers, lingers, it nags
It comforts so perversely never to prevail

I’m gonna tear it down, I’m gonna watch it fall

Immortalise me paint my portrait once more
When my dust settles it will mingle with yours
It’s all an illusion anyway
Surely our creator’s, got greater games to play
Least I loved I tasted it so pure, bitter, sour and sweet
In my castle I decay while you go on in your quaint retreat, and
I fear I’ll live it again, I’ll live it always
This pain this isolation is my groundhog way

I’m gonna tear it down, I’m gonna watch it fall
I’m gonna tear it down, I’m gonna watch it fall

I lost your hand and then I lost the plot
I’ve got the one thing that only I can have
It’s the, only thing that truly matters
Your heart I hold without the means to shatter
One final embrace, just one last smell
I look into your eyes like when I first fell
So deep inside that I touched your soul
Hey, never turn back your secret’s untold
Elephant kisses for you and me
You know what I really need is, elephant kisses

Tear it down, watch it fall
Tear it down, watch it fall
Tear it down, watch it fall
Tear it down, watch it fall

I’m gonna tear it down, I’m gonna watch it fall
I’m gonna let it crumble, I’m gonna tear it down
I’m gonna watch it fall, I’m gonna tear it down
Tear it down, tear it down, tear it down
