Fans of The Cure, 80's New Wave, David Gilmour.

ABOUT THE SONG:

This song was the third single released and the second video.  When this tune was originally written, the lyrics were meant to reflect the status of the United States of America, and, in truth, how divided the country is as opposed to united regarding many important things.  Over time, the song grew more personal as I was able to add a few lines relative to to situations I had gone through.  Overall, though, the song is a giant metaphor for isolation and barriers instead of communication and reaching out to one another.

Building Walls…

A sort of shelter from

the noise and toys

and endless information.

 

Building Walls…

A goodbye to outside thoughts

and degradation

and all the animosity.

 

Building Walls…

Some better barricade than

Reaching out… no bridges and no waterways

Building walls…

To keep us separate

And shield me from

that future fall out.

 

I Remember…

I remember when we tried to talk.

Such mute communication.

I remember…

I remember how we acted out

Like scared little children.

 

And in the end…

When we decided we could 

not be friends… it seemed so natural.

And you’ll pretend…

You will pretend that you are always right

And I’m off the deep end.

 

We’re just building up our walls.

ason…

There’s a reason 

There’s a reason why we’re at this point.

Oh, But I can’t remember.

All the screaming…

All the tears and all the choosing sides… 

and how we lost our reason

 

So big and tall,

I stand my ground, but I am wearing down

I hate this situation.

And through it all,

We never waiver, though we’re sure to fall…

Ah, we’re just building up our walls.

Ah, We’re just building up our walls

Ah, We’re just building up our walls
