There are times it will do no good
There are times it will do nothing at all
There are times you know you should
There are times you know you might just save us all
Building for the flood
Building for the flood

It falls to you some kind of order
It falls to you some hidden warden
It falls to you to extoll the souls of strangers
It falls to you, we are blind to this danger
Building for the flood
Building for the flood

You can let your spirit pass
You can lay yourself on some deserving grass
You can let it out, let it go,
Let it breathe, let it rot, let it feed some future blood
Building for the flood
Building for the flood
