Broken Bricks

Album: Broken Bricks (1999)
  • Have you been to the broken bricks girl
    Snuck down through the cyclone fence
    Past the caution tape
    And the security gate
    Back way to the break room bench
    Well there's a little corner
    Where you first got kissed
    And felt your boyfriends fist
    And made the company list
    And there's a little spot
    Where your dad ate lunch
    And your brother landed his first punch yeah,yeah,yeah

    Well have you been to the broken bricks girl
    Seen the barrels that they left behind
    Seen the machine
    That cut aluminum clean
    And got tape from the caution sign
    And broke into the window panes
    Just a rusty colored rain
    That drives a man insane
    You try to jump over water
    But you land in oil
    Climb the ladder up a broken crane

    Don't go to the broken bricks girl
    It's not a place that you want to be
    Think of the spot your father spent his life
    Demolition calls it
    Building see
    Demolition calls it
    Building see now
    Demolition calls it
    Building see now Writer/s: JACK WHITE
