The Wrecking Ball - Lyrics by Spirit Of The West


Lyrics
ove the sidewalk under the archwaythrough the door againplanting charges seed of destructiontime is caving inhere we are at mile zero this is St. John's NFL
Dbut you can hear the strains of Neroserenade the demolition manthe sun is risingbricks are fallingnothing stands too long too tallfor the swing of the wrecking ballthe petition failed the coffin's nailedwe protest but money talkswhat's here today will be gone todayholding hands won't stop the clockthey'll be coming in teh morningto tear a piece out of the skytry and build another Babelwho can reach the highest highthe sun is risingbricks are fallingnothing stands too long too tallfor the swing of the wrecking balldance macabre at the wrecking ballsteel toe shuffle through an empty hallthe hard hat dancers take th floorthen the ceiling and the corridorthe jackhammers beat out eight to the barthe last dance will be a slam dancering around the Dev hotela crowd is gathering roundthe plunger sinks a cheer goes upand it all falls downin a shower of brick and mortar raining downin dirty sheetswhen the dust has come to settlether'll be one less shadow on the streetthe sun is risingbricks are fallingnothing stands too long too tallfor the swing of the wrecking ball
