Well it set my head a’spinnin when I finally gave a listen
to the paranoia play out on each and every page
What I thought was a sickness turned out to be a sickness
We were up here dreaming while you were down there scheming

Now all I hear is babble, and it don't mean nothing at all
Between heaven and half-built towers, it don’t mean nothing at all

Yeah I don’t think I’m gonna dip my toe into that water
You’ve got all you boys in, now the well’s been poisoned
So little bubble dweller, won’t you come up from mama’s cellar?
Yeah, the feel of stinging is just your eyes adjusting

Still all I hear is babble, yeah I don’t hear nothing at all
Between heaven and half built towers, I don’t hear nothing at all

May the truth haunt you, may the truth haunt you
All the days of your life

We don’t care that toy've you’ve been seething cause, cause we don’t care about fake grievances
Yeah, we don’t care you’re nursing injuries, and we won’t let you turn back history
And we see through your shallow certainties, and we don’t let you turn back history
And we don’t look through credulous eyes, you’re in for a big surprise

Sometimes persecution is a sign your doing everything wrong
Between heaven and half-built towers, you’re saying nothing at all
