Wrecking Ball

Album: Smoke and Mirrors (2010)

  • I'm alone, wandering in your space
    Waiting for a sign of life
    Looking so out of place
    Then you whisper to me, it doesn't matter what you say
    I feel the weight against the wind
    The demolition of me caving in

    And I'm always swinging on this wrecking ball
    While you're building up and breaking down my wall
    You push and pull, you give and take
    And through it all I gravitate to you

    I'm a fool, a mechanical tool for you
    You've got all the switches and levers to blow my cool
    And when you know I'm broken
    That's when you come shining through
    You set me up to knock me down
    And leave my shattered pieces on the ground

    And I'm always swinging on this wrecking ball
    While you're building up and breaking down my wall
    (I'm not ready to break)
    You push and pull, you give and take
    And through it all I gravitate to you

    You set me up to knock me down
    And leave my shattered pieces on the ground

    And I'm always swinging on this wrecking ball
    While you're building up and breaking down my wall
    (I'm not ready to break)
    You push and pull, you give and take
    And through it all I gravitate to you Writer/s: Bryce Soderberg, Jason Wade, Jude Anthony Cole, Rick Woolstenhulme
