lyrics

She said baby build a wall
Keep them out because they'll only do you harm
Take your mortar, brick and stone
With these walls as friends
You'll never be alone

Brother build a fence
Your soul is vulnerable
Build it strong and thick and tall
Far safer than the outside you know
If you don't climb you'll never fall

Now a wave of hatred swells
Welcome to my hell
I see a light slip through the cracks
and how I wish I could go back
To the day I built that mother fucking wall

What I thought was sound advice
No nothing, no nothing, no nothing is written in stone
So blast these walls with dynamite
Now I known this hell ain't home
Don't wanna be so safe anymore
So today I'm gonna build myself a door

Now a wave of hatred swells
Welcome to my hell
I see a light slip through the cracks
and now I know I must go back
To the day I built that mother fucking wall

To tear it down, tear it down, tear it down
