Wrecking Ball

Song Length 3:02 Genre Folk - Contemporary

Lyrics

Boarded up windows feeding the beast
Business is booming on Sullivan Street
Strolling the downtown, they're tearing it up
But this resuscitation's no labor of love

And they're going down
Down with the wrecking ball

Blast the old buildings, break the old bricks
Newer is better, prefabricate this
The wheel's in motion, the papers are signed
Now there's no turning back and no time for goodbyes

And they're going down
Down with the wrecking ball
And they're going down, down, down down, down
With the wrecking ball

Favors and handshakes and greasing of palms
Well oiled machinery helps to move things along
The future's folded in the wallets of those
Where it stops nobody, nobody, nobody knows, nobody knows

Sepia tones tint all that remains
History's keepsakes in photograph frames
Sentimentality can't stand in your way
When you're building the slums of tomorrow today

And they're going down
Down with the wrecking ball
And they're going down, down, down down, down
With the wrecking ball
And they're going down
Down with the wrecking ball
Down with the wrecking ball
Down with the wrecking ball
Down with the wrecking ball
