So go ahead and lie to yourself
And pretend that you're a ray of light
When you're a broken candle
You're keeping time with yourself
When it'd all start moving way too fast for you to handle

Short on breath
Heavy on time
You lost the words
But you found the rhyme
It's all just poetry now

The walls are singing
Hallelujah amen
The walls are singing
Hallelujah amen

It's so dark in the room
And the ceilings are high
You know the feeling
You've been here before
It's a broken old pew
It's a echoing cry
Don't sell yourself

Short on breath
Heavy on time
You lost the words
But you've found the rhyme
It's all just poetry now

The walls are singing
Hallelujah amen
The walls are singing
Hallelujah amen
The walls are singing
Hallelujah amen

See we don't really care who you are
We've kinda got this
Non-exclusive policy on determining
Exactly who we open up to
And let into our families
Then who becomes a part of our united mass of harmony

Now that's kinda become
The thesis to this song
Through suffering
Acceptance
Grief
And strife
There's no way that your puzzle piece
Fits into our puzzle wrong
Cause everyone is welcome
On this stage that we call life

And we don't really care who you are
Everyone is capable of looking up
And wishing on a star
So catch it so contagious
This day dreamers disease
And hope can be your sword
Slaying darkness with belief

So bring me all the worst
Of your broken bruised insane
Cause that's the thing with music
When it hits you fill no pain
No matter what you did
I promise we forgave it
When all that's left is your voice
You got no choice but to raise it
All you broken hearts
All you dejected dreams
Just let yourself be free
Because even broken wings
Can fly away

Oh in time you'll fine
That life's a painting
And you're the artist
Just open your heart
It's never too late
To clear your canvass

So paint me jealous
Paint me rage
For gods sake
Paint me anything
Just paint
Your brush awaits

And the walls are singing
Hallelujah amen
We're all just singing
Hallelujah amen
Come on keep sing
Hallelujah amen
Let your walls keep singing

Hallelujah amen
The walls sing you to sleep
(Hallelujah amen)
One secret meant to
Keep you safe tonight
I swear that everything
Will be alright
