How it shows on your elbows that you've been thinking and dreaming of building a building, conjuring up concrete. Oh the streets you've paved, the bricks you've laid to rest for progress. You'll impress upon yourself a blueprint spread for love. Build up, build up! From the ground up, ground up! Your skyscraper, foundations poured, what is more, you're fed up, fed up with your head up head up. Oh daydreamer, you're pondering and planning for her. Oh boy look around. You've hired hands happy, happy or hardly, autonomous. You tell yourself the workers are machines, aliens to themselves, means to ends you'll find a friend when you build up, build up from the ground up, ground up your lover, she's been born in blueprint form to you. Oh boy look around. You are in the clouds, oh boy look around. You've built up from the ground, oh boy look around, you're all alone, building a building. All alone, building a building.
