Frozen Mausoleums

We won’t find you
Oh we won’t find you
Not in these tattered pieces
Of dreams left behind.

Is there a remedy for
All of the things everyone knows
If not
Is there place that holds
All of the knowledge
We should have by now?

You built this town
You built this city
Repeat it over and over
As if you expect some pity.

Is this what it’s meant to be
Only disappointed faces looking our way?
Constant reminders that you think
We only want your sympathy

We can’t find it
Oh we can’t find it
Not in these tattered pieces
Of dreams left behind

Oh you built this town
You built this city
Heaven forbid it rises
Above your glory
And it all fades to black
Was the ending worth for naught.

Because you built this town
You built this city
On the ashes of those who
Thought you only wanted their sympathy

We’ll tear this town
We’ll burn your city
Frozen mausoleums to leaders
Who don’t deserve our pity.
