LyricsEdit

The cycle repeated
As explosions broke in the sky
All that I needed
Was the one thing I couldn't find

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

The colors conflicted
As the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this
But couldn't stop from tearing it down

And you were there at the turn
Caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you go

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

You told me yes
You held me high
And I believed
When you told that lie
I played solider
You played king
Struck me down
When I kissed that ring
You lost that right
To hold that crown
I built you up
But you let me down
So when you fall
I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn.

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall
I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall
I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground
