Who built the road
That led to my self-esteem
Twisted and crushed
Black metal and bones

Who passed the buck
Who pressed my flesh to yours
Spilling like wine
And sweeter than tears

Oh, I hope we more than survive
With trembling visions that terrify
So who built the road, who turned it all around
Picked through the wreck, scrambled in the dust

Who built the road
Who was the foolish one
Step out of time
Two hearts in the fire

Who lit the touch
Who fanned the flames
With sparks in the dust
Spent rivers of desire

Oh, why don't we learn from mistakes
We stumble along with so many more to make
So who built the road, who could foresee
That the answers we sought were many miles to go

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...

We were so lonely at times
Fading away, sitting side by side
And we built the road, we were the chain gang
The cross that I bore, the devil at my side
Dark angel within, the ever lasting fire

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la...
