The night before the demolition
An overweight man gave me permission
To go through the basement at the mission
And see what I could find

The night before the demolition
An overweight man gave me permission
To go through the basement at the mission
And see what I could find

Right before it’s burned down
Right before it’s blown apart
Right before everybody gives up on it
It’s in the air
Right before the wrecking ball
Right before the dynamite
Right before in the middle of the night
There’s something there

The last time we kissed was at the station
She was heading off for summer vacation
We were both well done, it was just gravitation
That our lips met

So I placed the key in the car’s ignition
While I re-thought our position
But if you won’t let go, then you can’t
transition
You can only bet

Right before it goes off
Right before it walks away
Right before the last thing that you
Won’t ever say
Right before you slip up
Right before the great regret
Right before everything changes
You’re not okay

I don’t know if anyone should
Given the chance, I don’t think I would
I just know that if I don’t admit it,
It’ll haunt me, and I’ll never quit it

Right before it comes again
Right before I lie down
Right before the last flight out
And the old black bear
Right before the buzzer sounds
Right before my time is up
Right before there’s nothing left
There’s something there

You gotta know that the night before the demolition
I sent out a brief transmission
I said somebody go and get me a good magician
I’m about to change
