Building Skyscrapers in the Basement

This song is by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Hearts of Oak (2003).

Is there a place to go
Where a little girl might never have to know?
And is there a time of night
When she'll ever feel it's safe to dim the light?

I know some things I'd rather not
Like the time ahead is all the time you've got
And one other thing I know
Out from under layer after dark layer, as the years go by, a little girl can grow
