A man walks bare-foot along the path
He leaves his tracks a question mark
A girl comes later from the bridge
She lets her footprints fall in his
His heart is glad she's a-gonna come
He sits down to wait for the setting sun
She leaves her house just after dark
Out on the road there's a speeding car

The driver was drunk and didn't see her
And now one man waits down by the river
How can it be so late and she's not with him
He feels the dread swell up within him

Fallin' down, fallin' down
How come I feel I'm fallin' down
Won't somebody help me, I'm fallin' down
I just can't keep from fallin' down

There's an ancient culture and a modern plot
There's a drilling rig and a sacred rock
Those angry words upon the flat
Won't make that dreaming come back

There's disease in the body and it won't stop
There's mouths to feed while the food just rots
There's a crowd of people getting shot
There's a loved one gone and meaning lost

Fallin' down, fallin' down
How come I feel I'm fallin' down
Won't somebody help me, I'm fallin' down
I just can't keep from fallin' down
Fallin' down
