Skyscrapers, earth movers, ground breakers
Our buildings rival the heavens, our bridges span the seas
Ingenuity is so cunning, innovation is not ours, creativity is a luxury
We build with our hands what we have in our hearts

Fight the avalanche, you'll be buried every time
We run and run and run, keep falling behind
Fight the avalanche, you'll be buried every time
We run and run and run, always last in line

Before lines were lines
Before time was time
The author wrote a story in the sky
And earth below

Little do we know we have only what we're given
Light up the sky, we're going where no man has ever gone
Little do we know we have only what we're given
Light up the sky, we're going where no man's forgotten

All You are is all we want, it burns inside us all
We're finding heart in giving soul
We're walking home into thin air singing

We are justice fighters with faces of fire
Many walk away, but we stand firm
We are justice fighters with faces of fire
Our decisions affect our descendants
We are justice fighters with faces of fire

Skyscrapers, earth movers, ground breakers
Our footsteps, bringing purpose, changing history
Skyscrapers, earth movers, ground breakers
Our footsteps, bringing purpose, changing history

Songwriters
DUSTIN DAVIDSON, MATT GREINER, JOHN BRUBAKER, BRENT RAMBLER, JAKE LUHRS
