Paramore - Brick by Boring Brick

She lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of a world that she's left behind

It's all about the exposure, the lens, I told her
The angles are all wrong now
She's ripping wings off of butterflies


Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds


Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle
Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle

Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba-da

So one day, he found her crying
Coiled up on the dirty ground
Her prince finally came to save her
And the rest she can figure out
But it was a trick
And the clock struck twelve
Well make sure
To build your home brick by boring brick
Or the wolf's gonna blow it down


Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds

Well go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle

Go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
We'll bury the castle, bury the castle, whoa, whoa

Well you built up a world of magic
Because your real life is tragic
Yeah you built up a world of magic

If it's not real
You can't hold it in your hand
You can't feel it with your heart
And I won't believe it
But if it's true
You can see it with your eyes
Oh, even in the dark

And that's where I want to be, yeah

Go get your shovel (You'll be better off without me)
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle (ooh), bury the castle
Go get your shovel (You'll be better off without me)
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle (ooh), bury the castle

Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba-da
Ba-da ba ba ba-da ba ba
Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba-da
Ba-da ba ba ba-da ba ba
Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba-da
Ba-da ba ba ba-da ba ba
Ba-da ba ba-da ba ba-da
Ba-da ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

Hayley Williams explained to Kerrang! magazine that, "this song is about people who cover up their reality with frills and make out like they're living a fantasy life. It's one thing to have goals and dreams but it's another thing when you never know where you're standing in the real world. People can be hurt by that." She also added: “Brick By Boring Brick is about not accepting reality and understanding that you don’t have to make everything frilly or pretty-sounding for it to be interesting. Life doesn’t have to be some grand production, and some of the boring parts of being alive are actually the greatest. The song is about breaking down those walls and finding out that the centre of it is what really matters.”" (Source Brick by Boring Brick Songfacts).
