BRICK BY BRICK

Rough hands

Dirty work

Know I’m sweating

By the stains on my shirt

Good men

In bad times

They think they own me

But this city is mine

I gotta’ burnin’ desire

To lift our legacy higher

Workin’ hard to survie

Just to get out alive

CHORUS

Brick by brick

They try to knock us down

With a wreckin ball

Brick by brick

Blue collar men

Stand American tall

Lyin’ thieves

In glass homes

We built a nation

While the bosses were stoned

Give blood

To get paid

We work our ass off

Every night and day

I gotta’ burnin’ desire

To lift our legacy higher

Workin’ hard to survive

Just to get out alive

CHORUS

Brick by brick

They try to knock us down

With a wreckin ball

Brick by brick

Blue collar men

Stand American tall
