Watch It Fall

Billy Strings

Band/Artist: Billy Strings

Album: Home

Well it's not so easy now
Though it never was back then
We still can't seem to work this out
But you can still pretend
And these tattered walls and burning bridges
Quickly start to fall
How long until there's nothing left at all?

I've been to California, man
I've seen them city lights
Been stranded in the desert
Scorching days and freezing nights
I'll never understand
Why people try to walk to tall
How long until there's nothing left at all?

Don't you love that you got years to?
[?] years to feel so free
Won't you wait a while in silence, love
Watch it fall with me

Well the old men said the great big apple
Is rotten to the core
With Wall Street skimming from the till
While no one minds the store
And how could someone get so low
In a building so damn tall?
How long until there's nothing left at all?

While chunks the size of Delaware
Are falling off the porch
Our heads are buried in the sand
Our leaders dug the hole
Like junkies hooked on fossil fuel
Headin' for withdrawal
How long until there's nothing left at all?

Don't you love that you got years to?
[?] years to feel so free
Come and wait a while in silence, love
And watch it fall with me

Now the answers in our heads
To the questions that were asked
It boils up from underground
And leads us to the past
To a place that's long forgotten
When we had enough for all
How long until there's nothing left at all?

Don't you love that you got years to?
When we try to make our stand
The hourglass is growing empty now
Just to leave a pile of sand (Watch it fall)
