Broken Bricks
The White Stripes Lyrics


Have you been to the broken bricks girl
Snuck down through the cyclone fence
Past the caution tape
And the security gate
Back way to the break room bench
Well there's a little corner
Where you first got kissed
And felt your boyfriends fist
And made the company list
And there's a little spot
Where your dad ate lunch
And your brother landed his first punch yeah,yeah,yeah

Well have you been to the broken bricks girl
Seen the barrels that they left behind
Seen the machine
That cut aluminum clean
And got tape from the caution sign
And broke into the window panes
Just a rusty colored rain
That drives a man insane
You try to jump over water
But you land in oil
Climb the ladder up a broken crane
Yeah,yeah,yeah

Don't go to the broken bricks girl
It's not a place that you want to be
Think of the spot your father spent his life
Demolition calls it
Building see
Demolition calls it
Building see now
Demolition calls it
Building see now

Robyn


on Candy Cane Children

The meaning of this song is basically saying the older you get, the less fun Christmas becomes usually do to adulthood. The lines "don't you know your name?...", probably refers to the adults telling kids to grow up as if they're saying "Do you know how old you are? You're getting too old for this stuff." Probably why he put the lines "nobody knows how to talk to children". Also, he puts the lines "think again" after a thought of one of the kids thinking of wishing to participate in Christmas activities. As if they're thinking "Yeah I probably AM too old for this.." "364 more tears girl" the sadness of getting older. Not participating feels like a missed opportunity and causes even more sadness..
