  • I can see myself in a broken reflection
    This magnifies my imperfection
    Beaten down, and I'm crawling, I'm craving affection
    I'm afraid of rejection
    Comfort in violence, suffer in silence
    Lost in self deception
    Is there no salvation?

    Brick by brick I've built this wall
    I shut you out to break the fall
    I will shed my sins
    I'll show you my skeletons
    One by one we cast the stones
    Flesh and blood, and broken bones
    Burn away the sins
    We all have our skeletons

    We all have our skeletons

    I have lost myself in my addictions
    There's no faith in fear or self-destruction
    Falling out, falling down
    And I'm crawling to you to confess my intentions
    Suffer the violence, comfort in silence
    Lost in self deception
    Is there no salvation?

    Brick by brick I've built this wall
    I shut you out to break the fall
    I will shed my sins
    I'll show you my skeletons
    One by one we cast the stones
    Flesh and blood, and broken bones
    Burn away the sins
    We all have our skeletons

    Brick by brick! Brick by brick! Brick by brick! Brick by brick! Brick by brick! Brick by

    Skeletons!

    Skeletons!

    Brick by brick I've built this wall
    I shut you out to break the fall
    I will shed my sins
    I'll show you my skeletons
    One by one we cast the stones
    Flesh and blood, and broken bones
    Burn away the sins
    We all have our skeletons
