"The Walls Are Starting to Crack" as written by and Josh Garza Brandon Curtis....
In believe in the only
They're supposed to be lonely
No wonder we're never alone
I been watching the star signs
Recording my sight lines
My eyes shut to hide

I've been rushing the air sleep
To see how the time slips past
The livng keep falling away
So I stay in this watch tower
To wait for a safer hour
Enclosed in mortar and stone

The walls are starting to crack
How could they hold back
These waves have always broken through
Yeah but I needed proof
Because I have been lied to
These walls are all that I know

I can leave I can leave by my own power
Go ahead tear this old tower
The rooms already outgrown
Just don't tell me what don't exist
Outside where the darkness sits
When the ground starts trembling through

The walls are starting to crack
They couldn't hold back
These waves have always broken through
Yeah I needed proof
Because I have been lied to
These walls are all that I know

    Song MeaningAlienation from the society and madness brought by it, gorgeously expressed as the noise section gets gradually meaner and stronger until exploding at 4:50 when the walls of mind finally shatter and waves of insanity break through. Or a positive interpretation: he finally gets the courage and ventures out into the world, free from his self-made prison.
