lyrics

'What are those pillars called?' - they're cloisters
You used to do everything and more to me, then leave
I just sit around constantly and argue
Now I pretend that I don't
What about piece of mind and virtue?
What about everything I got from being free?
Well it's all in a day's work, it's all in the past
Well you've broken the day in, I'm just breaking my fast

Tear down the cloisters and start anew
I've got this feeling it'll all fall through
Tear down the cloisters and start anew
Armed only with theories and brand new shoes
When my heart was in lockdown, I tried to reduce
And fell joylessly into the arms of make-do
I didn't just not want that, I craved it
And the cloisters stayed up

'What are those pillars called?' - they're cloisters
I thought about everything you said to me and felt blessed
Well it's all in a day's work, it's all in the past
Well you've broken the day in, I'm just breaking my fast

Tear down the cloisters and start anew
I've got this feeling it'll all fall through
Tear down the cloisters and start anew
This settling panic will rip right through
With the weight of these days and the lack of a master
You make me feel like someone turned me off and on again
'Til these cloisters come down

...and so my civilised mind, it comes in all these sizes. This love was compromised; these cloisters built for prizes. Adjust me all my minds. I'll live indoors 'til the end of time (it's a finish line). Even cloisters succumb to time.
