(Starship:)
We built this city,
We built this city on rock an' roll
Built this city,
We built this city on rock an' roll

(Linkin Park:)
The cycle repeated
As explosions broke in the sky
All that I needed
Was the one thing I couldn't find
And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

(Starship:)
Don't you remember
We built this city
We built this city on rock an' roll

(Linkin Park:) We're building it up
(Starship:) We built this city
(Linkin Park:) To break it back down
(Starship: We built this city on rock an' roll
(Linkin Park:) We're building it up
(Starship:) We built this city
(Linkin Park:) To burn it down
(Starship: We built this city on rock an' roll
(Linkin Park:) We can't wait to burn it to the ground

(Linkin Park:)
As the flames climbed into the clouds.
I wanted to fix this
But couldn't stop from tearing it down.

And you were there at the turn
Caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know

(Starship:)
Don't you remember
We built this city,
We built this city on rock an' roll

(Linkin Park:) We're building it up
(Starship:) We built this city
(Linkin Park:) To break it back down
(Starship: We built this city on rock an' roll
(Linkin Park:) We're building it up
(Starship:) We built this city
(Linkin Park:) To burn it down
(Starship: We built this city on rock an' roll
(Linkin Park:) We can't wait to burn it to the ground

(Linkin Park:)
You told me, "Yes"
You held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played soldier, you played king
And struck me down, when I kissed that ring
You lost that right, to hold that crown
I built you up, but you let me down
So when you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

(Starship:)
Don't you remember (remember)
(Here's your favorite radio station, in your favorite radio city
The city by the bay, the city that rocks, the city that never sleeps)
Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll

(Linkin Park:) We're building it up
(Starship:) We built this city
(Linkin Park:) To break it back down
(Starship: We built this city on rock an' roll
(Linkin Park:) We're building it up
(Starship:) We built this city
(Linkin Park:) To burn it down
(Starship: We built this city on rock an' roll
(Linkin Park:) We can't wait to burn it to the ground

(Starship:)
We built this city,
We built this city on rock an' roll
Built this city,
We built this city on rock an' roll

(Linkin Park:)
When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

(Starship:)
We built,
We built this city
Built this city
We built
We built this city
