My mama told me, when I was younger
You better speak up, don't be a number
My daddy told me, when it was thunder
Go be the lighting, don't run for cover

Who's gonna help the helpless?
Sometimes we're all alone
These days, we're all just looking
For a place that we call home

Now we can't climb over, and you can't go round
Build them up, we'll tear them down
Brick by brick, gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges and tear down walls

These walls are the mountains that we climb
These walls are the great divide
Brick by brick, gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges, tear down walls

The space between us is getting wider
We need this bar to light the fire
Show me the promise, give me some feeling
There's too much hurting, we need some healing

Who's gonna help the helpless?
Sometimes we're all alone
These days, we're one step closer
To that place that we call home

Now we can't climb over, and you can't go round
Build them up, we'll tear them down
Brick by brick, gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges and tear down walls

These walls are the mountains that we climb
These walls are the great divide
Brick by brick, gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges, tear down walls (these walls)

I remember when the world was smaller
And we both felt 10 feet taller

Now we can't climb over, and you can't go round
Build them up, we'll tear them down
Brick by brick, gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges and tear down walls

These walls are the mountains that we climb
These walls are the great divide
Brick by brick, gonna watch them fall
Build more bridges, tear down walls (these walls)
(These walls, these walls, these walls)
Tear down walls (these walls)
(These walls, these walls, these walls)
Tear down walls
