"Over the Wall" as written by and Nash....
Saw it in the summertime
It was gray and dirty
Concrete and barbed wire
Cutting through the city

Break on through to the other side
Was written in graffiti
The wall was long and it was high
Isn't it a pity that

You and I
Learned to cry before we learned to crawl
We've only just come far enough to fall
And all the world is watching over the wall

Mines and machine guns
Try to keep the people down
Passport policemen
Try to keep the others in

How long can this go on'
Keeping everyone apart
Tear all the fences down
Tear down the wall around your heart

It's up to everyone
So start, it really can be done
Take part
The battle can be won over the wall

Over the wall
Over the wall

How bad has it got to be
If they wanna get over here
How good has it got to be
If they have to keep 'em there

Let everybody go
Stop feeding all the fears
Let everybody know
There's got to be some way out of here

Over the wall
Over the wall

And over the wall
Over the wall
