These lakes are new lakes
They are volatile
And mountains aren't really anything
But the bearers of growing things

I bring you dead things
And I lay them at your feet
Tell me does it hurt you like it hurts me
Are they dead and gone or are they living

And our hearts are brittle hearts
They are caving in like they have never been
And this mess is our mess
And it is bigger than it has ever been

We built this house and we tore it down
Oh we built this house and we tore it down
We are ashes and dust and dirty ground
Oh we built these walls and we can tear them down

And our hearts are brittle hearts
And they are bigger than they have ever been
And this mess is our mess
And we are stronger than we have ever been

(we have ever been)
(we have ever been)
(we have ever been)
(we have ever been)

These wrists are my wrists
They will always be
As they have always been
