Like waves,
They crash at our feet, and they
Knock down the castles we've made
And they laugh as we weep,
They laugh as we weep,
They laugh as we weep for our homes

Like thieves,
They steal from our things, and they
Knock down the doors of our dreams
And they laugh as we scream,
They laugh as we scream for a home

Oh,
Our fathers, they saw more than wires and billboards
Scattered throughout all our streets
And I see them, they're laughing at me

This place, that we all call home,
Brooks leak cut from mountains of stone
We forget what we once used to know,
As we see our all is turn to ashes from gold

We washed it away,
When we once have made
Sugars with hands that were stained

Oh,
Our fathers, they saw more than wires and billboards
Scattered throughout all our streets
And the tallest of remnants,
The more tallest of pillars;
A city of rust at our feet
A city of rust at our feet
A city of rust at our feet
