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
