Lyrics

Tear It Down

He walks around a lot and begs for folks to help him out
He’s smart, he’s got some hands that’ll take him far.
But the street has been taped to his shoes and his shoes are now taped to him
And it’s gettin hot and melting into glue
It’s hard, feet are pounding and he’s used to the blue

The flood is rising quick and he’s losing his grip
The white man’s dog is eating better
While the stamp baby’s sucking on sugar
Stuck as a summer bridge dweller
Losing bets with a fortune teller
High hopes as a blue collar worker
No side door anymore, want the front door
Tear it down, Tear it Down.

Take time to help him out
he's nice, seems to care a lot
but there's always a why and there's always something in his eyes.
He's always got an alibi because the colored tie is real tight,
white doves flying by, got their wings and they're singing high.
They're going somewhere and they're leaving him behind.
The flood is rising quick and he’s losing his grip
The white man’s dog is eating better
While the stamp baby’s sucking on sugar
Stuck as a summer bridge dweller
Losing bets with a fortune teller
High hopes as a blue collar worker
No side door anymore, want the front door
Tear it down, Tear it Down.
