Stone by stone, I constructed a cathedral
Stone by stone, built it up and wrecked it down
Stone by stone, everyone's looking to wear the crown
Stone by stone, even though they got it all

It's getting onto you
Cannot bleed to get the strength enough
You called me out to lead me on
I'm ready; please forget

I am running a marathon in glass shoes
I am hiding behind windows

Stone by stone, whether headed up or down
Stone by stone, always looking, never found
Stone by stone, even though they got it all

It's getting onto you
Cannot bleed to get the strength enough
You called me out to lead me on
I'm ready; please forget

It's getting onto you
Cannot bleed to get the strength enough
You called me out to lead me on
I'm ready; please forget

It's getting onto you
Cannot bleed to get the strength enough
You called me out to lead me on
I'm ready... I'm ready

I am running a marathon in glass shoes
I am hiding behind windows

Stone by stone, build it up and watch it fall

    General Commentjust outstanding...i think it's about inner strength and how you have to realize it within yourself and not to rely on some musician or anyone else, because they're also human beings.

    by the way: as far as i know this song only has been released via the german magazine VISIONS
