"Pictures on My Wall" as written by and Ian Stephen/sergeant Mcculloch....
Can you hear it?
The sound of something burning
Something changing
On the merry-go-round tonight

The pictures on my wall
Are about to swing and fall
Love it all, love it all

Ooh, we should have
Should have got it right
Ooh, we should have
Should have got it right tonight

People come, I count everyone
Faces burning, hearts beating
Nowhere left for us to run

The pictures on my wall
Are about to swing and fall
Love it all, love it all

Ooh, we should have
Should have got it right
Ooh, we should have
Should have got it right tonight

Can you hear it?
The sound of someone thinking
Someone thinking
On the merry-go-round tonight

The pictures on my wall
Are about to swing and fall
Love it all, love it all

    General CommentThe 'pictures' seem to be a metaphor for an influential authority figure; ie. a picture of Stalin could swing and fall when damning information came out about him, etc.
