When I was boy 
There's a dream that I had
That a war if was fought 
Was for good against bad
And I woke up to find 
That the world had gone mad 

And we'd all fall down

And I feel like a child again
Sitting or turning
You're toying with power
Your fingers are burning
You're pushing so hard 
That the worlds won't be turning

We'll all fall down

When you try to pretend 
That you're a god upon high 
With your party ideals 
And your squeaky clean lies
When it comes to the crunch
You're no smarter than I 

And we'll all fall down

If it's colour of creed or all time religion
Well fighting for that shows 
A pure lack of vision
The fight that we strive 
Is a fight to survive 

And we'll all fall down

Well look in the mirror 
And what do you see
An American, Russian 
A soldier or me 
When you all press the buttons 
Just where will you be?

When we all fall down
