Well take a look at that
I made a castle in the sand
Saying this is where it's at you know
Couldn't understand now
If I realised that the chances were slim
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

I want to live on solid rock
I'm gonna live on solid rock
I want to give I don't want to be blocked
I'm gonna live on solid rock
Well I'm sick of potential

I'm sick of vanity now
I'm sticking to essential reality now
