Peter stood there upon the mountain
Surrounded by all the infidels
And as his gaze surveyed the landscape
Crosshairs dancing in his eyes

Peter's cry from the tower
Did not sound so merciful
Letting go. . .
He goes down
He goes down

Peter feels the voice again
Drowning out the icy sky
In his heart is the answer
He loads his rifle with a sigh

Peter's cry from the tower
Shatters on the street below
Letting go. . .
He goes down
He goes down
He goes down
Watch him go down

Peter feels the great release now
And he does not cry
Letting go. . .
Letting go. . .

And he sees them, captains and kings
And he feels the world they bring
Under their blue luxurious sky
And he feels up all inside out
He knows what their wealth is about
Telling himself its all in the name of a friend who's a friend who's a friend who's a friend you'll never know
You'll never know
And he knows, and he flies
And he circles again
Singing
All this time i've been frustrated
All these people are elated
Somewhere there's some kind of contact
Why'd I fall behind?
And he mutters beneath his berath
He says,
we all go down someday
We all go down someday
We all go down someday
But today, yeah today's the day you go down.

And he goes.
He goes down
He goes down
He goes down
Down
Watch him go down
Down, down, down

Shit!

And we all pretended
Thought he never intended
To take upon himself an action
And carry it out
Now we lie in what he knows

Shit!

And we never expected
He'd mind being rejected
He took upon himself an action
And carried it out

Oh my god!

Now we lie in what he knows
