She was a spinning glass heart with a crack running down her side
For her falling in love was never enough to bridge divide
Build a fire so big that it burns us all
Light a fire so big that it burns my soul

He was an old chimney billowing smoke in the sky
And all the birds in the trees would catch his disease and die
Build a fire so big that it burns us all
Light a fire so big that it burns my soul

I feel your fear it follows me to the corner of the room
Does anybody hear the words I say as I fall down
You were dancing across the floor without burning bounds
Now you can't find your way home
Does anybody hear the words I say as I fall down

He was a steel bullet train vowing never again to cross state lines
Until she blew up the hills with her dynamite it burned his eyes
She was a river boat queen an American dream for sure
Silver steeple of hope that kept the city alive through the war

Build a fire so big that it burns us all
Light a fire so big that it burns my soul

I feel your fear it follows me to the corner of the room
Does anybody hear the words I say as I fall down
You were dancing across the floor without burning bounds
Now you can't find your way home
Does anybody hear the words I say as I fall down

We're all falling down, no our feet never touched the ground
We're all falling down, no our feet never made a sound
We're all falling down, no our feet never touched the ground
We're all falling down
