TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

HMM YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH (5x)

ONCE AND FOR ALL YEAH WE BUILT IT
BUILT IT FROM A MIGHTY STONE
THROUGH HEAVEN ‘N’ HELL YEAH WE BUILT IT
WE BUILT IT TO STAND THE TEST OF TIME
ALL OF MANKIND HELPED US BUILD IT
IT STOOD FOR ALL THE GOOD WE’VE KNOWN
BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED ALONG THE WAY
SOMETHING HAPPENED ALONG THE WAY
SOMETHING MANAGED TO SLIP AWAY FOR GOOD

NOW WE GOTTA TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
BETTER BUILD IT BACK UP ON A HIGHER GROUND
OH YEAH TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
TEAR IT UP AND START IT AGAIN
BUT IF WE’RE GONNA TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
WE GOT TO LOVE AND GUARD LIFE
YEAH WE GOTTA CHANGE THIS HARD LIFE
BEFORE WE BUILD AGAIN
BEFORE WE BUILD AGAIN

TEAR IT UP
HUH HUH YEAH WE GOTTA TEAR IT UP
BREAK IT DOWN ‘N’ START IT AGAIN
TEAR IT UP
HUH HUH YEAH WE GOTTA RIP IT UP
BREAK IT DOWN ‘N’ START IT AGAIN

ONCE AND FOR ALL YEAH WE’LL BUILD IT BUILD IT
BUILD IT FOR THE CHILD IN YOU
BUILD IT FOR THE CHILD IN YOU
INNOCENT HEARTS NOW WILL BUILD IT BUILD IT
THEY’LL BUILD IT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO USE
FOR ALL THE WORLD TO USE
ONCE IN THE PAST THOSE WHO BUILT IT
DID THE THINGS THEY HAD TO DO
(WITH THE HIGHEST INTENTIONS IN VIEW)
BUT SOMETHING HAPPENED ALONG THE WAY
SOMETHING HAPPENED ALONG THE WAY
SOMETHING MANAGED TO GO ASTRAY IT’S TRUE

AND NOW WE GOTTA TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
BETTER BUILD IT BACK UP ON A HIGHER GROUND
OH YEAH TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
TEAR IT UP AND START IT AGAIN
IF WE’RE GONNA TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
WE MUST RESPECT AND GUARD LIFE
YEAH WE GOTTA CHANGE THIS HARD LIFE
BEFORE WE BUILD AGAIN
BEFORE WE BUILD AGAIN
BEFORE WE BUILD AGAIN

ASHES TO ASHES
DUST TO DUST
WHAT HAVE WE DONE IN THE NAME OF LOVE
ASHES TO ASHES
DUST TO DUST
WHAT HAVE WE DONE IN THE NAME OF LOVE
WHAT HAVE WE BORNE WITH THE RICHEST OF DREAMS
WITH THE WISEST OF SCHEMES
THAT HAS TURNED TO A TRAVESTY
ASHES TO ASHES
DUST TO DUST
WHAT HAVE WE DONE IN THE NAME OF LOVE

HUH HUH WE BUILT A TOWER OF CORRUPTION
HUH HUH FOR A DEN OF THIEVES
HUH HUH IN A HOUSE OF ILL REPUTE
HUH HUH YEAH IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE
HUH HUH WE BUILT A PILLAR OF INJUSTICE
HUH HUH ON A CORNERSTONE OF LIES
HUH HUH WITH A BOGOTIFIED FOUNDATION
HUH HUH AN’ NOW WE CAN’T BELIEVE OUR EYES

IT’S A SHANTY IT’S A SHACK
IT’S A FLOP HOUSE IT’S A DUMP
FOR A BLINKIE IN THE GUTTER
FOR A SKEEZER FOR A CHUMP
IT’S A WORLD OF CONFUSION
IT’S A CITY OF SIN
YEAH IT’S A TOWER OF CORRUPTION
AN’ IT’S EASY TO GET IN

AN’ WE BUILT IT
WE BUILT IT
AN’ NOW WHAT HAVE WE DONE IN THE NAME OF LOVE
WE BUILT IT
WE BUILT IT
AN’ NOW WHAT HAVE WE DONE IN THE NAME OF LOVE

WE’RE THE ARCHITECT OF RUIN
THE BUILDER OF JIVE
THE DESIGNER OF CATASTROPHE
THE LAST TO SURVIVE
FIRE IS OUR SYMBOL
OUR MEDIUM IS RUST
ASHES TO ASHES
AND DUST TO DUST

THE WORD IN THE STREETS IS ‘DEMOLITION’
IT’S A WRECKING BALL PARTY
IT’S A HOLY MISSION
SO FLATTEN IT
FLATTEN IT
LEVEL IT
LEVEL IT
BRING IT TO THE GROUND
ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES
AN’ TEAR THE DAMNED THING DOWN

YEAH TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
CAUSE THE MOMENT IT FALLS
WE ALL WILL THEN RISE UP
TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
BETTER BUILD IT BACK UP ON A HIGHER GROUND
OH YEAH TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
CAUSE THE MOMENT IT FALLS
WE ALL WILL THEN RISE UP
TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE
BETTER BUILD IT BACK UP ON A HIGHER GROUND
OH YEAH TEAR DOWN THE
TEAR DOWN THE
TEAR DOWN THE HOUSE!!!
