Come on now the curtain is drawn
And tomorrow stands before you
Dressed and draped in a cold black cape like a crow
He ignores you
Look again there's a beautiful girl
Covers sin in a holy land shroud
It's the great disappearing act
Done once again for the marveled crowd
As we're chasing our tails
And biting our nails
So strong and frail

And we build and tear it down
Build and tear it down
Build and tear it down
With barely the time to say
How did it get so late
I'll never know

Step outside and now the door's open wide
And the minons are eager to find him
Put a million miles under your heels
And you're still behind him
Cover your clocks with your chains and your locks
While the seasons get hotter and colder
Stretch your faces and lie about your ages
And still we're gonna get older
As we're chasing our tails
And biting our nails
So strong and frail

And we build and tear it down
Build and tear it down
Build and tear it down
With barely the time to say
How did it get so late
I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never know

Hang on 'til your fingers break
And your hands unwind
He will escape you every time
From under your pillows
Through open windows
And out on the rails

As we build and tear it down
Build and tear it down
Build and tear it down
With barely the time to say
How did it get so late
I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never know
