Dream Theater – Build Me Up, Break Me Down lyrics

Today I will be a saviour
Tomorrow a demon
You crave my eratic behaviour
And watch my every move

Obsession at all costs
You'll be the death of me
Broken and torn apart
Why can't you let me be?

You build me up
You break me down
Until I'm falling to pieces
I crash and burn
I never learn
I'm your guilty addiction

Build me up
Break me down

Today
Saviour
Tonight I am the new messiah
You dare defy

When I'm no longer desired
I'll be crucified

The one who's free from sin
The first to cast the stone
Fighting the fear within
I won't be left alone

You build me up
You break me down
Until I'm falling to pieces
The price I pay
To live this way
And the fantasy stays alive
I can't live up
I can't let down
And leave you falling to pieces
I crash and burn
I never learn
I'm your morbid obsession

Build me up
Break me down

I will be a saviour

You build me up
You break me down
Until I'm falling to pieces
The price I pay
To live this way
And the fantasy stays alive
I can't live up
I can't let down
And leave you falling to pieces
I crash and burn
I never learn
Your a comic fixation

Build me up
Break me down
Build me up
Break me down
