And along came something sacred
I never knew what I found
The demons dance around, elated
They're hurting me

I put my wall up each day
You tear it down
I hide in my space
The space you found
And one of these days
I'll come unbound
The feelings I hate
Will finally drown

Falling awake in a nightmare
Images of horror abound
Thought I stumbled upon salvation
Hell I found

I put my wall up each day
You tear it down
I hide in my space
The space you found
And one of these days
I'll come unbound
The feelings I hate
Will finally drown

Well, I'll never be the same
It's the greatest lie ever told
No, I'll never be the same
I sold my soul

I put my wall up each day
You tear it down
I hide in my space
The space you found
And one of these days
I'll come unbound
The feelings I hate
Will finally drown

    He puts his walls up each day but something tears them down, he'll never be the same, having stumbled across something so sacred but unknown to him... Hes sold his soul!

    Put up your wall like your defence and as the day goes on the struggles you face or the people that get in your way or try putting you down slowely destroys your wall and gets to you until you lose it.

    My wall:
    And along came something sacred
    I never knew what i found
    The demons dance around, elated
    They're hurting me

    I put my wall up each day
    You tear it down
    I hide in my space
    The space you found
    And one of these days
    I'll come unbound
    The feelings i hate
    Will finally drown

    Falling awake in a nightmare
    Images of horror abound
    Thought i stumbled upon salvation
    Hell i found

    I put my wall up each day
    You tear it down
    I hide in my space
    The space you found
    And one of these days
    I'll come unbound
    The feelings i hate
    Will finally drown

    Well, i'll never be the same
    It's the greatest lie ever told
    No, i'll never be the same
    I sold my soul

    I put my wall up each day
    You tear it down
    I hide in my space
    The space you found
    And one of these days
    I'll come unbound
    The feelings i hate
    Will finally drown
