Put your head between your knees and breathe throguh your teeth
Let it in, let it out till it's over

I might scribble, I might scrawl
I might crawl at the wall
I might storm and rage and thuinder

Oh Christ put the letter in the incinerater
Something inside seems to fall a-sunder

I need to scream every now and again
Try to understand it's only me
Now, only cripples have a need for crutches

And if they ever take you away from me-he-he-he-he

(Fall Down)
Fall Down and lie still
(Fall Down)
Moving in for the kill
(Fall Down)

Putting several boots in lie helpless
God help us
Our heads are
We'll sque-he-he-he-he.....

Repeat first paragraph

    General CommentI'm commenting! This song is surprisingly pretty. The falsetto's a bit rough though... I wish I knew what the lyrics meant. Anyone want to guess?

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "breathe real deep" instead of "breathe through your teeth." And I think in the last line before the first verb is repeated is "We'll scream."

    Anyways. It's hard for me to like Bob Geldof because he hates the Clash, but this song is really well done. I have the "Best Of" album and this is the final song. Great way to end it.
