Each day I leave my realm, step out of my door - I breathe in carefully
Then from the black façades I watch the rain fall - and courage falls in me
I try to see the sky but I just see walls - they trap me silently
Some people shout at me and it's a known call: the city jeers at me

[Bridge]
And I cannot, cannot, I cannot stand it all [4x]

It bruises all my life and all I lived for - unfurls so ruthlessly
Exists to vandalize, I hate it much more - it kills the child in me
And naturally surrounds me day in, day out, phagocytizes all
They call it just progress I call it breakdown - am I the only one?

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
Scaffolds rising through the sky, so threatening
They sprout and spill their concrete lies

If this is what you want to live through - just myopic curiosity
If this is what satisfies you - then I lost the faith I had in me

Oh, you got to feel... [4x]

False vows paired with false intentions - but they drown in all the other lies
But if there's something I believe in, then there has to be another side

Oh, you got to feel... [4x]

It leads me away, it drags me away, it pulls me away, it drives me away [2x]

Drives me away [4x]

Each day I leave my realm, step out of my door - I breathe in carefully
Then from the black façades I watch the rain fall - and courage falls in me
I try to see the sun but I just see clouds - and people pass my way
So with a known disgust I quickly turn round - it's just a normal day

[Bridge]

Scaffolds rising through the sky

[Chorus]
