lyrics

I built a tower with a spire
I kept building it higher
It stands for the fire of unquenchable desire
Debris falling onto the ground
Didn't look down in case people were standing around

You get a Cadillac I get a Porsche
We'll look at the city from the penthouse porch
Counting the money and we both want more
Now we're trying to throw each other down off the 57th floor

But it feels good
And I knew that it would
Cost me my whole life
And ruin the neighborhood

What goes up
Must come down
What goes up
Comes tumbling down

Never meant to do anyone any harm
Thought I was helping, false alarm
After all turns out I never was in control
After signing the package deal which included my own soul

There are things before my eyes that are too appealing
What I do for them jumps over the fence of reason
And I'm here bleeding
Still I can't help thinking
That I'd do it all again just to feel that feeling

Cause it feels good
And I knew that it would
Cost me my whole life
And take down my whole neighborhood

What goes up
Must come down
What goes up
Comes tumbling down
