The Lyrics

TEAR DOWN THE WALL!
I built you during these years
it began when my old man did die
My mom and my teachers and classmates
they helped me to build it so high
Although I have become rock star
and the world is on my hand
I'm on the verge of self-destruction
and nobody cares about me but the band

So goodbye yellow brick wall
I'm returning to feel and to live
I raised you to protect my inside
You've taken me more than you give
Back to the hurt and sensitivity
Back to the song and the poem
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
It's where the emotions do roam

I've lived a life of a rock star
I've cheated and done things dumb
I've tried to sedate my inside
To be comfortably numb
But it's clear that I am no robot
I have the feelings inside
It is now time to tear down the wall
and live all the highs and the lows of the life!

So goodbye yellow brick wall
I'm returning to feel and to live
I raised you to protect my inside
You've taken me more than you give
Back to the hurt and sensitivity
Back to the song and the poem
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
It's where the emotions do roam

I have to admit I got the idea of your Pink Floyd adaptations on Wizard of Oz :-)
