one of us must leave this town,
there’s no room for two points of view so
i’ll pick up my pillow and find myself a new place to rest

i can’t breathe, i’m choking on my own excuses
i can’t breathe, i’m choking on what i believe

thoughts don’t fit, with fire that lit.
these juggle sticks and voodoo kicks
bring pain to the weary, i’ve got it written over my face

Centre stage, take the blame,
I don’t know what to say. But I’m coming home anyway.
I have glue, nothing new,
I don’t know what to do, but I’m coming home to you.
In the wings, with the kings,
gorging on power that brings all the wealth possessed sovereign rings
You will fall, when you’re called,
And you wont go before, the right time, I hold a wrecking ball.

I hold your wrecking ball.
you gave me this wrecking ball
you built the wrecking ball
now i’m using it. now i’m using it on you.
