"All Fall Down" as written by Midge Ure, Christopher Thomas Allen and William Currie....
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

    General CommentI must say this has to be one of Midge Ure's best works lyrically, absolutely fantastic song.
    It's absolutely terrrible in an Ultravox context however.
    Ure should have kept this for his solo career instead.
