Recorded fall 2019

lyrics

When the weatherman wraps it up
he gets slammed in the face
Knocked to the pavement as he starts signing off
And a million blocks fall down into place

Four year stints
Like bricks
Like bricks
They crumble in the wind

Stack 'em
Like bricks
Like bricks
And watch them tumble out the window

This deluge
Doesn't stop when you've been subdued
You sort of lose your life
But at least it's something new

You've been standing in that check out line
Before the sun even rose
Spent all your days tipping back and forth
It's time to fall, you little domino

A direct hit
Like bricks
Like bricks
And these'll stick

Toss 'em
Like bricks
Like bricks
In nine months they’re coming back down on you

The streets
get replaced
A staircase
For new primates
That pinwheel from the rainclouds
A fresh crowd
To take on
The streets
get replaced
A staircase
For new primates
That pinwheel from the rainclouds
A fresh crowd
To take on
The streets
