about

This track was written as a zen response to the absurdity that is Donald Trump and the wall of fear and hate that he is ultimately trapped by.

lyrics

Build a wall and hide away
Build a wall so we can’t stay
Build a wall to keep your fears at bay
Build a wall in this world of clay

But watch it sway
In the brand new day

We see through your wall
I can hear your squall
You have touched us all
We can smell your fall

When you stand tall
Above them all

Looking across the plains you see
The cloud, the paper and the tree
All together we clearly be
Among the creatures we call free

So I guess you have to...

Build a wall and hide away
Build a wall so we can’t stay
Build a wall to keep your fears at bay
Build a wall in this world of clay

But watch it sway
In the brand new day

A wall doesn’t matter
A wall won’t stop the rain
The cloud passes over
You start to feel the pain
Strong trees stand tall
A piece of paper holds it all
We see through your wall
We’ll seep through it all

Build a wall and hide away
Build a wall so we can’t stay
Build a wall to keep your fears at bay
Build a wall in this world of clay

But watch it sway
In the brand new day
