"The Walls Are Coming Down" as written by Simon Aurell, Catherine Genevieve Mary Lucas, Justin Finch, Amos Akbar Memon, Leon Eric Beckenham and Mark John West....
They swallowed it whole, they went for the gold, for the gold
We fall for the same lies we all have the same shoes to fit

The preachers and books of your empire will fight here alone
Some day the will be forgotten and die one by one

The walls, the walls are coming down
The here and now is coming round
It will someday let you down
The ships, the ships are coming in
The great ideas are wearing thin
There is nothing left to do

For atoms have gone as far as atoms will go
Your books write themselves
They line up in row after row

The walls, the walls are coming down
The here and now is coming round
It will someday let you down
The ships, the ships are coming in
The great ideas are wearing thin
There is nothing left to do

    My InterpretationDefinitely my favorite Fanfarlo song.

    I don't think change and the future are quite all though. It's more about the end of things. Vague things. Things like life and hope and peace and pioneering. Little things and big things. It's about aiming as high as possible and then having nothing left to aim for. It's about achieving all there is to achieve; thinking all there is to think; dreaming all there is to dream until eventually we're all on the same plateau. We all find ourselves with the same shoes to fill and with no more great ideas to have. And then the walls will indeed come down.
