Cracking Up

Keep the lid on the pot
And the pressure builds up
You can stamp the fire out
But the ashes stay hot
Stay hot, stay hot

You can pave over fields
But the pavements subside
See a root smash a brick
Given time, given time
All your concrete town
All the stony ground

Is cracking up
You know it must
It's cracking up
It's only dust

From far under your feet
The future arrives
The jungle just waits
Give it time, give it time
Now the grass grows tall
The building's bound to fall

Is cracking up
You know it must
It's cracking up
It's only dust

Your home is cracking up
It's only a skin
That holds the world out
While holding you in
Keep the lid on the pot
Pressure builds up
You can stamp the fire out
Ashes stay hot
Seeds are growing now
Something's breaking out

You're cracking up
You know you must
You're cracking up
You're only dust
