lyrics

The blood, sweat, and tears held in this mortar are what once gave it strength
But now it's fading away
These frail and weakened barricades, have long outlived their use
Broken down and decayed (I'm afraid)

These castle walls are made of cracks, more void than substance found
At just a thought, they'll come tumbling down (all around me)
And as they fall, I'll hear my name
but the cracks remain the same

Steady, calloused hands fail to find the gaps that welcome in the cold
Perplexed, they suffer the chill
Weathered down by constant storm, the roof's mouth wide agape
Its words rain still, and always will

These castle walls are made of cracks, more void than substance found
At just a thought, they'll come tumbling down (all around me)
And as they fall, I'll hear my name
but the cracks remain the same

Not all things that are broken are useless
There exists hope for those that are lost
Not all battles waged are fruitless
Sometimes the highs are worth the cost
...the cost

A single tremor shaking the floor upon which I once relied
Has turned this fortress to sepulchre, Time has never taken its side

Cuz these walls are made of cracks, more void than substance found
At just a thought, they've come tumbling down (again)
And as they fall they scream my name
but the cracks remain...
