You try to build walls
and try to burn bridges
and it’s becoming tedious
breaking them down
and putting them out.
You build a brick
and I break it away.
You light a match
and I put it out.
As you build and burn
I break and douse.
I just want to get to you.
Why are you making it
so hard
just to try?
Please stop building up walls.
Please stop burning down bridges.
This construction and destruction
gets us nowhere.
Please try
to burn your walls
and build your bridges.
