Lyrics
Shoring up the sides, pillars hold me up
Mortar me here, mortar me there
Gonna need stronger underwear uh-huh
to keep this spine upright

Reaching to the sky, stone by stone
A character flaw will bring it all down
Gonna have to call the mason 'round uh-huh
and sturdy up the ground

I wake up close to being just right, then something gets me wound
and I start to lose sight of that big, Gold Girl who knows all about stuff,
who loves every single body and knows when to shut up

I try to build the perfect model of-a who I wanna be
There's an ideal person hiding, lurking, waiting inside of me

Shoring up the sides, pillars hold me up
Mortar me here, mortar me there
Gonna need stronger underwear uh-huh
to keep this spine upright

Reaching to the sky, stone by stone
A character flaw will bring it all down
Gonna have to call the mason 'round uh-huh
and sturdy up the ground

I know that up is the general direction of-a where I gotta go
to get the best view, there's a lotta rotten beams that I gotta
get rid of, gonna sheetrock up, gonna order some steel

I try to build the perfect model of-a who I wanna be
There's an ideal person hiding, lurking, waiting inside of me

Shoring up the sides, pillars hold me up
Mortar me here, mortar me there
Gonna need stronger underwear uh-huh
to keep this spine upright

Reaching to the sky, stone by stone
A character flaw will bring it all down
Gonna have to call the mason 'round uh-huh
and sturdy up the ground
