BRICK BY BORING BRICK [ACOUSTIC]
Brand New Eyes [iTunes Bundle] | 2009



She lives in a fairy tale, somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell of a world that she's left behind
It's all about the exposure, the lens, I told her
The angles were all wrong, now, she's ripping wings off of butterflies

Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds

Well, go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle
Bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle
Bury the castle

Ba da ba, ba da ba, ba da

So one day he found her crying, coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her and the rest you can figure out
But it was a trick and the clock struck twelve, well, make sure
To build your home brick by boring brick or the wolf's gonna blow it down

Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds, oh, oh, oh

Well, go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle
Bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle
Bury the castle

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh

Well, you built up a world of magic
Because your real life is tragic
Yeah, you built up a world of magic

If it's not real you can't hold it in your hands
You can't feel it with your heart
And I won't believe it
But if it's true you can see it with your eyes
Oh, even in the dark
And that's where I want to be, yeah

Well, go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle
Bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle
Bury the castle
