"Tear Me Down"

TEAR ME DOWN Lyrics by Stephen Trask
Hedwig:

Don't you know me, Kansas City?
I'm the new Berlin Wall.
Try and tear me down!
I was born on the other side
of a town ripped in two
I made it over the great divide
Well now I'm coming for you

Chorus:

Enemies and adversaries
they try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

Hedwig:

I rose from off of the doctor's slab
like Lazarus from the pit
Now everyone wants to take a stab
and decorate me
with blood graffiti and spit

Chorus:

Enemies and adversaries
they try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
Try and tear me down

Yitzhak:

On August 13th, 1961,
a wall was erected
down the middle of the city of Berlin.
The world was divided by a cold war
and the Berlin wall
was the most hated symbol of that divide
Reviled. Graffitied. Spit upon.
We thought the wall would stand forever,
and now that it's gone,
we don't know who we are anymore.
Ladies and Gentleman,
Hedwig is like that wall,
standing before you in the divide
between East and West,
Slavery and Freedom,
Man and Woman,
Top and Bottom.
And you can try and tear her down,
but before you do,
you must remember one thing! Hey.

Hedwig:

Ain't much of a difference
between a bridge and a wall
Without me right in the middle, babe
you would be nothing at all
Chorus:

Enemies and adversaries
they try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
try and tear me down.

Enemies and adversaries
they try and tear me down
You want me, baby, I dare you
try and tear me down.

Hedwig:

From East Berlin
to Junction City.
Hello, New York.
Hello, Missouri.
What?
Try and tear me down?

Come on and tear...
Come on and tear...
me down.
