    Skyscrapers, Earthmovers, Ground Breakers
    Our buildings rival the Heavens
    Our bridges span the seas

    Ingenuity is so cunning
    Innovation is not ours
    Creativity is a luxury
    We build with our hands what we have in our hearts

    Fight the Avalanche
    You'll be buried everytime
    We run and run and run
    Keep falling behind

    Fight the Avalanche
    You'll be buried everytime
    We run and run and run
    Always last in line

    Before lines were lines
    Before time was time
    The author wrote a story in the sky - and earth below

    Little do we know
    We have only what we're given
    Light up the sky
    Light up the sky
    We're going where no man's forgotten

    Little do we know
    We have only what we're given
    Light up the sky
    We're going where no man's forgotten

    All you are is all we want
    It burns inside us all
    We're finding heart in giving soul
    We're walking home into thin air

    SINGING

    [Solo]

    We are justice fighters with faces of fire
    Many walk away, but we stand firm
    We are justice fighters with faces of fire
    Our decisions affect our descendants

    We are justice fighters with faces of fire

    Skyscrapers, Earthmovers, Ground Breakers
    Our footsteps, bringing purpose, changing history
    Skyscrapers, Earthmovers, Ground Breakers
    Our footsteps, bringing purpose, changing history
