  • Well take a look at that
    I made a castle in the sand
    Saying this is where it's at you know
    Couldn't understand now
    If I realised that the chances were slim
    How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

    I want to live on solid rock
    I'm gonna live on solid rock
    I want to give I don't want to be blocked
    I'm gonna live on solid rock
    Well I'm sick of potential

    I'm sick of vanity now
    I'm sticking to essential reality now
    I don't know what's worse
    Try to make a silk purse
    Living an illusion living in confusion
    Well a house of cards
    Was never built for shock

    You could blow it down in any kind of weather
    Now two solid rocks two solid blocks
    You know they're gonna stick
    Yeah they're gonna stick together
    Because the heart that you break
    That's the one that you rely on
    The bed that you make
    That's the one you gotta lie on

    When you point your finger 'cause your plan fell through
    You got three more fingers pointing back at you
    I want to live on solid rock
    I'm gonna live on solid rock
    I want to give I don't want to be blocked
    I'm gonna live on solid rock
