Emptiness devours all we made
The Nothing comes to take it all away
Now these structures are just just empty space
Brick by brick we built them
Breath by breath they decay

At night I dream of the destruction of temples
When day breaks I see castles fall
I can’t escape the scene of crumbling cities
‘Cuz every moment I’m reliving it all

This tower was a promise 
Not an alter to your mistakes
The life we built into each stone
Didn't leave enough room for graves

All my hope couldn’t hold you up
If there’s a god, it’s time you showed us
These falling walls couldn’t be enough
To save you from yourself

My concrete queen renounced her throne
But I’m too young to reign
I don’t know how to wear this crown
Or how to rule this pain

Our stories build our structures
To protect us, to survive
To guard all of our fragile dreams
Or bury us alive
