Demolished by Love

Demolished by love
Demolished by love

My doors have been rattled
My cage has been rocked
The vessels are no longer
Moored to the dock

Thank you, love

My streets are abandoned
My town hall is closed
If you know any people,
Maybe go consult those

Not demolished by love
Demolished by love

Even in times of forgiveness
And relative peace and light rain
There's a part of me wants to consider
The debt that I hold and the strain

My brick buildings are toothpicks
My trees, vaporized
I once had an ego --
It's torn down to size

Demolished by love

That old baseball diamond
The old ice cream stand
Everything blown- up
According to plan --

If you have insurance
And ties to this world,
Get down in your storm cellar
Away from that girl

Or be demolished by love

We had expectations
Ideologies, even
Now watch as your every last
Earthly cause is beaten

And demolished by love
