Bricks and mortar, reflecting social change,
Cracks in the pavement, reveal cravings for success

Why do we try to hide our past
By pulling down houses and build car parks

Windows and mirrors like a two-way glass
This is progress, nothing stands in its path

Yellow bulldozers, the donkey jackets and j.c.b's
While hundreds are homeless they're constructing a parking space

Why do they have to knock them down
And leave the site dormant for months on end?
Who has the right to make that choice?
A man whose home has cost forty grand
Tell me!

Bricks and mortar, bricks and mortar
Knock 'em down!
