lyrics

Build

I love you in your prime
But you say it's too late now
Everything's sly
There goes the bus
Here comes the rain
And there's no-one to take the blame

Think it's hip to be a deconstructionist
Take an axe to the whole damn town
Full of smiles when you want to drown
And have the whole world wash over you

It's not about what you break down
It's about what you build

Na na na...

Get back out there
Go see friends
Don't waste time trying to dream a better ending
Life's too short who can afford this
All your anger
Nobody is worth it

Think it's hip to be a deconstructionist
Take an axe to the whole damn town
Full of smiles when you want to drown
And have the whole world wash over you

It's not about what you break down
It's about what you build

Can't you see that's how he's going to break you
Turn you into your own enemy
I know I make it sound easy

It's not about what you break down
It's about what you build

Na na na...

It's not about what you break down
It's about what you build

I love you in your prime but you say it's too late now everything's sly

I love you in your prime...
