destroy the foundation
remove every stone
chisel out the layers
it's drawing its strength from
level all the levers
that lift it into place
pull apart the contents
destroy every trace

deny the desire to stand
further up than any other man
step from out the hiding space
come on, destroy the past mistakes

restore imagination
the consequence of thought
celebrate the beauty
in what we forgot
cancel cynicism
it needs to be returned
restore imagination
restore it now, my son

decide to begin
something new all over again
save yourself, while you can
come on, crumble like a man

decode the founding sentence
to introduce the chorus
come on, while you mean it
sing it 'till you're hoarse
call the secret numbers
that divide the sheep
take the shining light right
where the giant sleeps

divide the meaning from
all the words that bring you harm
step from out the target face
come on, put them back in place
