lyrics

Growing weeds in the old bookcase
Shadows only thrive in the empty space
Fallen bricks in abandoned homes
Fires only rise where your love can grow

Morning came with a boiling sunrise
Shadows crept across the desert westward
We ditched our souls on the road to Hollywood
Just to suffocate in Pasadena

We're gonna make it, make it big
We're gonna break it, break it, break it

Growing weeds in the old bookcase
Shadows only thrive in the empty space
Fallen bricks in abandoned homes
Fires only rise where your love can grow

We lost our keys in Ventura sink holes
And slept the night out on the burned-out hillside
We warmed our hands on the glow of millionaires
How could we fit into this finished puzzle?

We're gonna make it, make it big
We're gonna break it, break it, break it

Our only thoughts are of the setting sun now
Where aging shadows make the wrinkles deeper
And every party is the one you didn't throw
Oh, how we wonder what we've really broken

Growing weeds in the old bookcase
Shadows only thrive in the empty space
Fallen bricks in abandoned homes
Fires only rise where your love can grow

We're gonna break it, break it, break it
We're gonna break it, break it, break it
