I spent my money on a piece of lead
To build a castle on a patch of sand
I know it's a bad foundation
You can't wait, for my humiliation

You told me so, so many times now
And if it happens I could cry my eyes out
It's no better to be just like him
If something happens then we'll both need to swim

But one wave, one wave, one wave
Could.. wash it away yeah
Wash it away, yeah

The sun is green
The sky is red
For it might as well be outside your head
I stand in contradiction
To the truth in your subscription

I know that what might be might not
And bein' holy might just be drylock
And even though you're built on a big rock
That's not a nail in the house that you got

But one wave, one wave, one wave
One wave, one wave, one wave
One wave, could wash it away, yeah

You keep on lyin' to yourself
But your just as scared as everyone else
Not to say that I'm not scared too
But you're the one who's tellin' me what I should do

Just pretend that there's a God above you
And you can turn him into someone who loves you
And if you keep him just beyond you
You've gotta pay for people to hold on to

But one wave, one wave, one wave
Could wash it away, yeah
One wave, one wave, one wave
Could wash it away, yeah
