"Hammer" as written by and Blasko/cranny....
There's a hole in the roof
And the dust that's pouring through
Means you want to build the world again from scratch
'Cause nothing moved means nothing found
But there's a sadness in the sound
As the walls crack and the scenes change so fast

If you had a hammer you would knock the whole thing down
But tell me how you'll build again
With what is left of all you've spent?

Beware the time in your life
When you feel you have to be right
And you know your words no longer mean enough
There's not a whisper to be found
As you're marching to sound
Of the wheels turn, and the walls tumble down

If you had a hammer you would knock the whole thing down
But tell me, will you build again
When all is lost, and all is spent?

Knock things down to start again
So you tear it up to find escape
You'd do anything just to bring this down
Call it a sinking ship
You set the sun

You want a way out
You're begging for it
There's no chance of your escape
You'd buy your way out
Sell everything
But there's nothing left of all we've built

If you had a hammer you would knock the whole thing down
But tell me, how you'll build when all is lost and all is spent?
Oh, if you had a dollar
You would hide yourself away
But in your silence find some sense that there is no one else to blame,

I found you out
You set the sun
Falling ???
I found you out
You set the sun
There's no way out
I found you out
And inside the sun
I found you out

    General Commentfalling ???? = the falling fire?
    maybe
    that's what i thought anyway
    kind of fits for setting the sun - anyway it should be in the booklet

    General CommentI love this song! Apparently it's wonderful live.

    I always thought it was 'you're falling far'.. but i guess 'the falling fire' fits as well.

    General CommentI feel like this song is about drugs. though at first I thought it was about thinking through a tough decision instead of acting impetuously. and then kind of realized the two go hand in hand, boosting my appreciation for blasko x10000. and I love whatever that synth-thing is...so emotionally stimulating.
