I lost control of a wrecking ball,
and I tore a city down building by building.

It was an accident.
I swear, it was an accident.
I never would have started this, if I knew I couldn't finish it.
(Finish it)

I couldn't handle it.
I wasn't strong enough to handle it.
My body wasn't made for this, and my mouth it couldn't pay for this.
(Pay for this)

The city, she smiles back at me,
Like she's satisfied with me or the way I sing.

I lost control of a wrecking ball,
and I tore a city down building by building.

What are you supposed to do,
When the buttons you press don't do what you want them to?
I don't know what to do.

Well, you don't keep pressing.
You don't hit the machine.
Never panic; don't ever, ever panic.

Don't keep pressing.
Don't hit the machine.
Never panic; don't ever, ever panic.

Cause panicking only makes the city scream.
Panicking makes her scream; oh panicking makes me sing.

I lost control of a wrecking ball,
and I tore a city down building by building.
