Lyrics


I walked a crooked mile in shattered shoes
Cut me to the quick with nothing left to lose
Oh, I was lifted
I had to laugh to keep from crying to myself

All the while inside I was dying to myself
Oh, I was lifted
Crossing crooked bridges- cannot see what’s left behind
I don’t want to talk about it anymore- it’s time

Burn them down – burn them all down
Burn them down – burn them all down

Curiosity always gets the best of me
A shooting star getting swallowed by the hungry sea

Oh, I was lifted
Grind my axe, cut off the world to spite myself

My ivory tower is now crumbling on itself
Oh, I was lifted

Choke on the bricks, mortar and stone, choke on the brine
I was afraid to hope for anything – this time I’ll
Burn them down – burn them all down
Burn them down – burn them all down

Tear off the roof – and let me see what’s in the sky
I don’t want to dream about it anymore – it’s mine
Burn them down – burn them all down
Burn them down – burn them all down

Destroy the wall that left me out and let it in
I don’t want to live without it anymore
Burn them down – burn them all down
Burn them down – burn them all down

Oh, I was lifted
