LYRICS

The Infamous Stringdusters “This Ol’ Building” Lyrics

This old building is crumbling down
Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

There’s no place to hide
If we keep up what’s inside
Ain’t no way it won’t go
Once the wrecking ball gets thrown

This old building is crumbling down
Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

Light the fuse and walk away
Don’t save it for a rainy day
Once you’re further down that road
You won’t hear the place explode

Once it’s down, you wish you could
Build it back, but it’s gone for good
Don’t look back, you won’t see me
The home of the brave, land of the free

This old building is crumbling down
Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

This old building is crumbling down
Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

This old building is crumbling down
Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

This old building is crumbling down
Ain’t no people to gather around
This old building is crumbling down
To the ground

Bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters have shared the first single from their upcoming album, Laws Of Gravity. Listen to the gospel-inflected “This Ol’ Building” above, via SoundCloud.

Band member Andy Falco shared some insight about the track with Rolling Stone:

While I wrote it from quite a different angle… the words have taken on a different meaning to me now. It seems now to be a warning to come together. We must be united and try to understand each other. We must respect each other, listen to each other and help each other. All sides of the political spectrum can and should debate what’s right and wrong, but we must watch closely the decisions being made on all our behalf, and we should argue and fight peacefully for human rights for all – and the environment.

Laws Of Gravity is scheduled to be released on January 13th, 2017 on Compass Records Group. Pick it up on Amazon.
