When the leaning tower falls to the ground
When the hearsay's too much to think about
And they think that they've got you figured out
It's a rude world, it's a vicious world

When they're throwing stones
There's a place I know
I can always go

To my sanctuary, baby, where I run
And when the streets are burnin', baby, and I know
If they come with torches
Cause they don't like the truth
They can't hurt me when I'm with you
You're my sanctuary, baby
And I know I'm home, I'm home

When the saints all dance to the trumpet sounds
With apocalypse faces in the crowd
There's only one place left that matters now
When it's all wrong, I need someone

When they're throwing stones
There's a place I know
I can always go

To my sanctuary, baby, where I run
And when the streets are burnin', baby, and I know
If they come with torches
Cause they don't like the truth
They can't hurt me when I'm with you
You're my sanctuary, baby
And I know I'm home, I'm home

Tied up! Next to a lightning rod
Lined up! I'll cross a firing squad
If I'm beside you
Our hearts are enemy-proof
Nothing's getting through

When they're throwing stones
There's a place I know
I can always go

To my sanctuary, baby, where I run
And when the streets are burnin', baby, and I know
If they come with torches
Cause they don't like the truth
They can't hurt me when I'm with you
You're my sanctuary, baby
And I know I'm home, I'm home

Tied up! Next to a lightning rod
Lined up! I'll cross a firing squad
If I'm beside you
Our hearts are enemy-proof
Nothing's getting through
