Building A Ruin

[time: 03:55]
[Lyrics: Martin Walkyier]
[Music: Steve Ramsey]

My life is a sentence that carries no pardon,
I can't put you out of my misery now,
So stunned by beauty of this madhouse garden -
I've taken my chances (then lost them somehow).

This body's a temple - a shoddy construction,
I'm digging my grave - while boring the well,
I'm paving a path to my own self destruction,
I won't be content 'til I see me in Hell.

No I won't be content 'til I see me in Hell.

I've looked back on my time - the names and the faces,
A child long ago that I nearly forgot,
And felt like someone who'd just stepped on the place
where the last stair should have been - (then found it was not).

Life's just a process of delamination,
Stripping your hopes - dissecting them gently.
I've opened my heart - and to my consternation
when I peered inside it was small, dark and empty.

[Chorus]
My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,
drinking and smoking like somebody died.
I said 'Leave me alone I'm just building a ruin,
The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise.'

I'm building a ruin - I ruin a building,
My bridges are burned out - my tunnels are filled in.

It's all a game I believe - the longer you play it the harder it gets.
The most I can hope to achieve now's my breakfast,
a priest with a blindfold and last cigarette...

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,
drinking and smoking like somebody died.
I said 'Leave me alone I'm just building a ruin,
The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise.'

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,
drinking and smoking like somebody died.
I said 'Leave me alone I'm just building a ruin,
The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise.'

I won't be content 'til I see me in Hell.
