Will they come for me during the storm?
Will they come for me during the storm?

As the walls fall out
Windows breaking from moans of buses
Taking people out of the city
So climb down from what's left of the building

Call the papers, raise the ladders
Make sure the nets are in place

I want to pull down
What I thought was there
When I feel like fighting
I realize I'm punching air
The longer I try
To lure your eyes
It's clear to me
I got dressed up for no reason


When the floor caves in, roof slides off,
bricks break loose, shingles fall out
This is the only way they will find me, only way

Call the papers
Raise the ladders
Take the picture please
Call the papers
Raise the ladders
Take the picture of me

I want to pull down
What I thought was there
When I feel like fighting
I realize I'm punching air
The longer I try
To lure your eyes
It's clear to me
I got dressed up for no reason

I'm tired of the sky being constantly lit
Could you save me now if you, if you see fit

Call the papers
Raise the ladders
They want me to jump
Call the papers
Raise the ladders
They want me to jump

I want to pull down
What I thought was there
When I feel like fighting
I realize I'm punching air
The longer I try
To lure your eyes
It's clear to me
I got dressed up for no reason

    General Commenti think its about having a relationship that fell apart, like how you think its going fine and well but then one day you finally realize, its not what it seems, and you just want to go insane and just take apart everything you've built up
