Cracks in the pavement reveal cravings for success
Why do we try to hide our past
By pulling down houses and build car parks?
Windows and mirrors like a two-way glass
This is progress, nothing stands in its path
Yellow bulldozers, the donkey jackets, and J.C.B.'s
While hundreds are homeless, they're constructing a parking space
Why do they have to knock them down
And leave the site dormant for months on end?
Who has the right to make that choice?
A man whose home has cost forty grand
Bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar
Knock 'em down!
