One by one they fell
The walls could not control
The mob too strong to quell
A storm too large to hold

And a kingdom of bliss
It was gone with a hiss
Late at night, close my eyes
All alone, reminisce of when I owned a city
That towered over trees
So big it blocked the sun, the moon, the stars
And all you could see
And in there stood a castle
With a solid gold throne
Where I sat at the top of the world
The king of boxes and stone
Of boxes and stone

The haunting glow within
Coal embers burning bright
And each breath of the wind
Reminds me of the time

When a kingdom of bliss
It was gone with a hiss
Late at night, close my eyes
All alone, reminisce of when I owned a city
That towered over trees
So big it blocked the sun, the moon, the stars
And all you could see
And in there stood a castle
With a solid gold throne
Where I sat at the top of the world
The king of boxes and stone
Of boxes and stone

In the dark by the torchlight
Forged the tools that I need
To assemble the walls that fall
Each night inside of my dreams
And so I'll keep on stacking
Blocks on top of blocks still
Because if I don't build myself a giant city, who will?

And I will build a city
That towers over trees
So big it blocks the sun, the moon, the stars
And all you can see
And there will stand a castle
With a solid gold throne
Where I'll sit at the top of the world
The king of boxes and stone
Of boxes and stone
Of boxes and stone
