Well take a look at that
Saying this is where it's at you know
If I realised that the chances were slim

I'm gonna live on solid rock
I'm gonna live on solid rock

I'm sticking to essential reality now
Try to make a silk purse
Well a house of cards

Now two solid rocks two solid blocks
Yeah they're gonna stick together
That's the one that you rely on
That's the one you gotta lie on
When you point your finger 'cause your plan fell through
I want to live on solid rock
I want to give I don't want to be blocked
