When the Walls Came Tumbling Down

 

On the first day of the first month in some distant year 

The whole sky froze golden 

Some said it was the aftermath of the radium bomb 

While others told of a final retribution 

A terrible revenge of the gods 

 

But we understood the grand finale 

Fulfillment of a prophecy told many years before 

So all that was left was... 

 

All the women were captured and chained 

And national suicide was proclaimed 

And New America fell to the ground 

And all the children lay crippled and lame 

But all the nations came together 

In fear of the thought of the end 

No more would we fight in the streets 

No courage had we to defend 

 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound 

 

A blinding light the sun had died 

A new moon took its place 

Tidal waves and open graves the fate of the unhuman race 

The city's heart no longer beats no pity have I left to lend 

A sinner sits reciting Dylan it's now that I welcome the end 

 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound 

 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

When the walls came tumbling down 

Nobody made a sound 

(Down, down, down)

Down
