When The Walls Came Tumbling Down – Def Leppard

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 its now that I welcome the end

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!
