lyrics

Verse 1

This reckless chapter has run it’s course,
Try to feel no remorse, I hope it’s the same for you.
Are we through? Are we in this together,
You change like the weather, make up your mind will you.
Your performance your stage what a show,
How am I meant to know?, I’m not a mind reader.
I know why you’ve chosen this path,
Want to smile, want to laugh, forget the sadness I bring you.


Chorus

Now we’re on …
Red alert, alert, alert,
These names will never hurt, won’t hurt, won’t hurt,
Stick and stones, break bones, break bones, I’m home,
I’d rather sleep alone, sleep has lost it’s comfort.


Verse 2

Now you’ve tasted you’re thirsty for more,
When you walk out the door I’m no longer existent.
You’re standing right here next to me,
Take a look, don’t you see that you’re acting so distant.
There’s no need to keep up this façade,
Reputations are tarred, time to stop this pretending.
You’re counting down all of the days,
This transitional phase just seems so never ending.


Chorus

Now we’re on…
Red alert, alert, alert,
These names will never hurt, won’t hurt, won’t hurt,
The sticks and stones, break bones, break bones, break bones,
You’re not coming home, I’m all alone.


Middle

Brick by brick we build up the walls around us
I can’t knock it down, I can’t climb over (x3).


Chorus/outro

These bricks, these bricks, these bricks,
Keep building up the wall, the wall, the wall,
We climb and then we fall, no chance at all,
The final curtain call for us on…
Red alert, alert, alert,
These names will never hurt, won’t hurt, won’t hurt,
The sticks and stones break bones, break bones, break bones,
It’s time to change your tone and
Go into the unknown.
