I knew a man who lived in fear
It was huge it was angry it was drawing near
Behind his house a secret place
Was the shadow of the demon he could never face

He built a wall of steel and flame
And men with guns to keep it tame
Then standing back he made it plan
That the nightmare would never ever rise again
But the fear the fire and the guns remained

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping
But as the night came round
I heard it slowly sound
It wasn't roaring it was weeping
It wasn't roaring it was weeping

And then one day the neighbors came
They were curious to know about the smoke and flame
They stood around outside the wall
But of course there was nothing to be heard at all
My friends he said we've reached our goal
The threat is under firm control
As long as peace and order reign
I'll be damned if I can see a reason to explain
Why the fear the fire and the guns remained

Is there a light
Can you see the light shine?
I think I found a way through
(Yes I've found a way through)
I know things have changed
But the fear remained in me till I touched the light in you

Say over
It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
He tells the world that it's sleeping

It doesn't matter now
It's over anyhow
It wasn't roaring it was weeping
Say over
Not weeping
