Well now take a look at that
I made a castle in the sand
Saying this is where castle
Couldn't understand now
And if I realized that the chances were slim
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

Gonna live solid rock
Gonna live solid rock
I wanna give I don't wanna be blocked
I'm gonna live solid rock

Well I'm sick of potential
I'm sick of vanity now
I'm sticking to essential, reality now
I don't know what's worse
Try to make a silk purse
Living an illusion in confusion

Gonna live solid rock
Gonna live solid rock
I wanna live, I don't wanna be blocked
I'm gonna live on solid rock

Well, a house of cards
Never built for shock
You could blow it down in any kind of weather
Now you take two solid blocks
Two solid rocks
You know they're gonna stick
Yea, they're gonna stick together, oh, oh

Because the heart that you break
That's the one that you rely on
The bed that you make
That's the one you gotta lie on
When you point your finger 'cuz your plan fell through
You got three more fingers pointing back at you, yea

Wanna live solid rock
I'm gonna live solid rock
I wanna give up, wanna be blocked
I'm gonna live on solid rock, rock
Solid rock, rock, rock
Solid rock

I wanna live, I don't wanna be blocked
I gonna live on solid rock, rock
Solid rock, rock, rock
Solid rock
I'm gonna give up, wanna be blocked
I'm gonna give up, solid, solid, solid, solid, solid rock
Rock rock
Solid rock
