I have a plan, a big plan
I'll build you a house
Every stone is a tear and you will never move out
Yes, I'll build a little house for you, has no windows, no door
Inside it is dark and no light penetrates within
Yes, I'll make you a home and there you shall spend all your time

Stone by stone, I build you in
Stone by stone, I will always be with you

Without clothes, without shoes, you watch me at my work
With feet in cement you improve the appearance of the foundation
There will be a garden outside and nobody hears you screaming

Stone by stone, I build you in
Stone by stone, I will always be with you

What a beating, what a hammering outdoors it catches in to dawn
All nails stand to attention if I put them in your body, wood ramming

Stone by stone, I build you in
Stone by stone And no one hears you scream
