Hammer To Fall



Here we stand or here we fall

History won't care at all

Make the bed, light the light

Lady Mercy won't be home tonight

You don't waste no time at all

Don't hear the bell but you answer the call

It comes to you as to us all

We are just waiting

For the hammer to fall

Oh every night, and every day

A little piece of you is falling away

But lift your face, the Western Way

Build your muscles as your body decays

Tow the line and play their game

Let the anesthetic cover it all

Until one day they call your name

You know it is time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for

Your truth is all the same (oh no, oh no)

Lock your door but rain is pouring

Through your window pane (oh no)

Baby now your struggle's all vain

For we who grew up tall and proud

In the shadow of the Mushroom Cloud

Convinced our voices can't be heard

We just want to scream it louder and louder

What the hell are we fighting for?

Just surrender and it won't hurt at all

You just got time to say your prayers

While you are waiting for the hammer to, hammer to fall

It's gonna fall

Give it to me one more time

Waiting for the hammer to fall now, baby

Give it to me one more time
