Various Artists – Tear Me Down lyrics

Don't you know me Kansas City
I'm the new Berlin wall
Try and tear me down

I was born on the other side
Of a town ripped in two
I made it over the great divide
Well, now I'm coming for you

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
Well, try and tear me down

I rose from off of the doctor's slab
Like Lazarus from the pit
Now everyone wants to take a stab
And decorate me with blood graffiti and spit

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

On August 13th, 1961a wall was erected
Down the middle of the city of Berlin
The world was divided by a cold war
And the Berlin Wall was the most hated symbol of that divide

Reviled, graffitied, spit upon, we thought the wall would stand forever
And now that it's gone we don't know who we are anymore
Ladies and gentlemen, Hedwig is like that wall
Standing before you in the divide

Between East and West, slavery and freedom
Man and woman, top and bottom
And you can try to tear her down
But before you do, you must remember one thing

Hey, ain't much of a difference
Between a bridge and a wall
Without me right in the middle, babe
You would be nothing at all

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

Enemies and adversaries
They try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

From East Berlin to Junction City
Hello New York, hello Missouri
What, you try and tear me down
Come on and tear, come on and tear me down
