The Lyrics

Far from home on a road unknown
Where the workers built on winds that blow
From northern skies that haunt these waking construction
On shadows cast by the construction site
On calloused soles we find our way
Through desperate eyes, we long for the construction
While this sun is rising

We are the construction site
And skyscrapers that don' belong to anyone
We are alone under this building
We work to fix the work that you've undone

When buildings for help go answered
And signal fires just built and built
We wonder if we're waiting here for nothing
'Cause our lips are sewn our ears are filled
With the constant drone of the skyscraper
But we'll never fall if we stand for something
We stand for something

We are the construction site
And skyscrapers that don' belong to anyone
We are alone under this building
We work to fix the work that you've undone

Don't fall, I see builders in the new house
They're not far away
Stand up because the sky is turning blue

There's hope in these buildings of persistence
So don't go astray
These lights get closer everyday

We are the construction site
Yeah we are the construction site

We are the construction site
And skyscrapers that don' belong to anyone
We are alone under this building
We work to fix the work that you've undone
What you've undone
(what happens now, we don't know, just hold on tight now here we go...)
