lyrics

Break Down Our Walls (Espiritu/Tree)

I used to think the earth was flat
Did you ever have a thought like that
Did you ever think that to survive
You'd have to stick with those inside our tribe

If our only truth is what we believe
We'll only see what we want to see
And our sight just makes us blind

CHORUS
Close your eyes, open your heart
Find the connection here in the dark
Listen now, the big world calls
Let the rhythm and the music
Break down our walls

Colors come in many shades
Though we're different, we're all the same
Hear the sounds from far away places
See the beauty in unfamiliar faces

If our only truth is what we already know
We blindly follow the status quo
But there's so much more that we could find

CHORUS
Close your eyes, open your heart
Find the connection here in the dark
Listen now, the big world calls
Let the rhythm and the music
Break down our walls

Na nah...Break down our walls
Na nah...Break down our walls
Break down our walls
