When the walls fall down
On your old town
And you began

See I had these walls
Built up so strong
Built when I was young
In wars I've won

But if I'm alone
Stone upon stone
So tall I could not see
Beyond my wall

But our walls fall down
And our walls fall down
And when walls come down
On your old town
You began

A bit unassured
A bit insecure
I climbed up
And saw the world I lacked
And my fist stone cracked
Foundations collapsed
Standing on the ground
In stone I found

That our walls fall down
And our walls fall down
And when walls come down
On your old town
You began

Governor of the land
From where you stand
Beneath a shelter built by many hands
There is a stone
And you've locked the door
On people you once were
You came for war

And your walls fall down
Walls fall down
Walls fall down
Like a stone falls down
And I'm no stone
Just a stone
Says he's a stone
(Walls fall down)
No man's a stone!

    General CommentWhen the walls fall down
    On your old town,
    Then you began

    See I had these walls,
    Built up so strong
    Built when I was young
    In wars I won,
    Fortified alone,
    Stone upon stone
    So tall I could not see
    Beyond my wall

    But all walls fall down,
    And all walls fall down
    And when walls come down
    On your hometown,
    Then You begin

    A bit insecure,
    A bit unassured
    I climbed up
    And saw the world I lacked
    And my fist stone cracked,
    Foundations collapsed
    Standing on the ground
    In stone I'd found

    But all walls fall down,
    And all walls fall down
    And when walls come down
    On your hometown,
    Then You begin

    Governor of the land,
    From where you stand
    Beneath a shelter built by many hands
    There is a storm,
    And you've locked the door
    On people you once were
    You gave a war

    And your walls fall down
    Walls fall down
    Walls fall down
    Like a stone comes down
    And I'm no stone,
    I'm just no stone
    Says he's a stone
    (Walls fall down)
    No man's a stone!

    General CommentI thought it said, "She's so stoned, and I'm so stoned..." Haha.

    I am not sure entirely what this song means, but I'm kind of guessing it's about a person with insecurities.

    I think it's about a person, who had a 'wall' built up, not allowing people to see inside their emotions, their feelings. They were a person who acted tough, but never showed how they truly felt, sad, embarassed, depressed, happy etc.

    And finally, that wall of emotions fell down, and he no longer had that emotional barrior, and he could feel again, or allow other people to see who they truly were.

    Sorry if I'm not making sense, it made more sense in my head, but when I try to tell people about it or type it, it comes out confusing.

    Add anything to my perspective if you want.

    General Commenteasily about developing a world view. the perception you have of the world while growing up behind the walls of your home town give way to a new more open world view.
