Walking Through Walls
Jon Brion Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm standing up straight
I'm standing up tall
I've no time to waste
I'm walking through walls

Get out of my way, Mother fucker
Start moving you all, Mother fucker
I'm losing my brakes
I'm walking through walls, whoa whoa whoa whoa
I'm walking through walls, whoa whoa whoa whoa

Nothing in this world is gonna hold me
No thugs in this road are gonna roll me
No fast talking girl is gonna slow me
Nothings gonna stop me at all
I'm walking through walls

Some people complain
Yeah they caterwaul
I could do the same
But I'm walking through walls

I'm shooting through space
Like a big fireball
I'm falling from grace
I'm walking through walls
I'm walking through walls


Nothing in this world is gonna hold me
I am fortified with wherewithal
I won't be denied
I'm walking through walls
I won't be confined
I'll knock down the stall
I'll kick like a mule
I'm walking through walls
I'm walking through walls

Nothing in this world is gonna hold me
No thugs in this road are gonna roll me
No fast talking girl is gonna slow me




Nothings gonna stop me at all
I'm walking through walls
