lyrics

Tear me down, build me up backwards
It's the only way to know
Tear me down, build me up backwards
It's the only way to understand

You see I had a dream that he did what he wanted
And he followed me back to the light
And when I awoke again, I was just shaking
And nothing you do can make me feel alright
Tear me down
I don't know where I am

Hold on, hold on, we can be stronger
Than the monsters in your bed, you said, you said
But I am not and I just start shaking again
You see, I had a secret, put it in my pocket
With some stickers and a handful of change
But the rain made it rust and it cut me up inside
And I'll never be that free again
And I don't know where I am

You say eenie-meenie-miney-mo
Catch me by my fingers, by my toes
And if I holler, let me....
Go

Well there were two little girls playing jump-rope games after dark
Singing 'Miss Suzy Says' under the bare bulb of the streetlight in the corner park
Singing 'Ollie-ollie-oxen-free', mother may I take one step home
I want to come home now
Cause I don't know where I am
Tear me down if you want to understand

Cinderella dressed in went upstairs to kiss a
Made a mistake, kissed a snake, tell me
How many doctors, how many doctors
How many doctors did it take?
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight
Nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen
Out... out... out... out
