Take some time to look around you.
Take some time to know yourself.

You say I’m at the top of your list
That's where I’ll stay if you persist
Pretend that you don't know what's going on.
There’s a thin line between love and hate
And I’ll respect the walls that you create
Between the world and your friends and the people left around you.

And I won't ask you to work for free
But I insist you tell the truth to me
I shouldn't have to pay for your mistakes.
Give you 2 to 1 that you'll do it again
Give you 5 to 1 that you've done it since then
And it's not so hard to understand.

So hold onto your friends
Cause you know that's all you've got in the end
And you can't run away without a team to back you.
Don’t burn your bridges down
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you
Let's give credit, where credit is due.

Take some time to look around you.
Take some time to know yourself.
We built this city on rock and roll
Two brothers in a war with a common goal
We took this town, lets take the world now.

I got your letter in the mail
No return address, now tell me how’s it feel
Play the role of the concerned one.

So hold onto your friends
Cause you know that's all you've got in the end
And you can't run away without a team to back you.
Don’t burn your bridges down
Don't bite the hand that feeds you
Let's give credit, where credit is due.

And I’ll slow this down like I know you hate
And I know you’re busy, but I’ll just wait
Til I can take this song and scream it in your face.
My emotions get the best of me
So I’ll write it all down in a melody
And I’ll sing it myself (myself) to get the point across.
So put me on a list with the disappointed
That list is getting long
And you know I know I’m not the only one.

I’ll give you 2 to 1 that you'll do it again
I’ll give you 5 to 1 that you've done it since then
And it's not so hard to understand.

Built this city on rock and roll
Two brothers in a war with a common goal
We took this town (Let’s take this town)
Lets take the world now.

(Take some time to look around you.
Take some time to know yourself.)
We built this city on rock and roll
Two brothers in a war with a common goal
We took this town, lets take the world now, take the world now.

(I got your letter in the mail
No return address, now tell me how’s it feel
Play the role of the concerned one.)
We built this city on rock and roll
Two brothers in a war with a common goal
We took this town, lets take the world now, take the world now.

(I got your letter in the mail
No return address, now tell me how’s it feel
Play the role of the concerned one.)
Lets take this town,
Lets take the world now
Took this town,
Let’s take the world now

    General CommentI think this song is about how before you get in a relationship, you need to know who you are, and how important friends and family are. And how the person in this song didn't, and his relationship ended badly, leaving him no one.
    The line "Two brothers in a war with a common goal" I think refers to Joe and Michael Ragosta, the TWO BROTHERS in the band, who started it. I think the war is with the popularity of the world, and they're fighting to be recognized, which is there "common goal."

    This is a really good band I'm sad not many people know about them. =/
