temple down lyrics – 69 chambers

it’s not the right time to lay down and sleep sound
birds of death have taken flight, they’re now unbound

[chorus:]
release me vanity
tear the temple down
tear it down to the ground
we’ve chased a dream
for what it seemed
tear the temple down
watch it crumble to the ground

one final sigh till lists of delusions fly
into the cool of a dark winter sky

[repeat chorus]

can you hear the sound?
tear the temple down
time is running out
tear the temple down

down

[repeat chorus]

come take a bow
as the temple’s crumbling to the ground
make a new vow now
wave goodbye, we’re going down
down
