On the first day of the first month in some distant year The whole sky froze golden Some said it was the aftermath of the radium bomb While the others told of a final retribution A terrible revenge of the Gods But we understood the grand finale Fulfillment of a prophecy told many years before So all that was left was All the women were captured and chained And national suicide was proclaimed And new America fell to the ground And all the children lay crippled lame But all the nations came together In fear of the thought of the end No more would we fight in the streets No courage had we to defend When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound A blinding light the sun had died a new moon took its place Tidal waves and open graves the fate of the unhuman race The city's heart no longer beats no pity have I left to lend A sinner sits reciting Dylan it's now that I welcome the end When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down Everybody ran as they screamed at the sound When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down When the walls came tumbling down Nobody made a sound (Down, down, down) Down
