lyrics

“Walls” Lyrics by Ben Whiting


(verse 1)
All my bones are in the stones
They build the walls around my palace
A hollow heart
An empty yard
A wonderland without the Alice
All my choices
And all my plans
Always broken by the hands
Natural forces and wild horses
Come on hard and heavy again

(Pre Chorus)
But it comes on like an old steam train
So much faster than i can explain

(chorus)
Why does it rain every time i go outside oh i wanna go outside

(verse 2)
Here i stall from hitting walls
I should have known to bring my latter
when i fall down from your cloud
I hope my bones don't break and shatter
I hear voices and demands
Everest upon my shoulder
I hear noises in my head
Come on in i have something to show you.


(Pre Chorus 2)
But it comes on like an old steam train
So much faster than i can explain


(chorus 2)
Why does it rain every time i go outside oh i wanna go outside
