This is a call
to wake
the sleeping army
dreaming for
end the fear
in our hearts
for the last time


a shared vision
love's transmission through
the hollow days ahead
a hope
for where we grow
when its over
and its over


it falls
it passes right through me
it falls
and you won't be mistaking me
it falls
inside us
inside
it falls
it passes right
right through me


and we find out
what will remain


one day
I will wake up to find
you've bound my sister's feet
to find you've tied my daughter's hands
and you are walling in her mind


we throw
our hearts against the wall
we grow
the will to make it


fall


so we are living in a five hundred year old
prison in the mind in the heart where they
take your intelligence and your faith is torn
apart by culture state and power come together
and they steal all the light inside of us
everything that's real


when it falls

    General CommentThey couldnt have ended the albumn any better than with this song. Thomas is a genious he can write the most involved political lyrics, they strike a chord in me everytime I hear them.

    General CommentIf this song doesn't make you angry, there's something wrong with you.

    "so we are living in a five hundred year old
    prison in the mind in the heart where they
    take your intelligence and your faith is torn
    apart by culture state and power come together
    and they steal all the light inside of us
    everything that's real


    when it falls"

    This must be about opression, it makes me want to break something.

    General CommentAgree with both of you 100%. I fuggin love this song, gets me so pumped. I found these guys in '07 when Instinct got really popular, and I just recently got Change Is A Sound. This one blows you away. Perfect way to end the album.
