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're just waiting

For the hammer to fall


Oh every night and every day

A little piece of is falling away

But lift your face the western way-

Build your muscles as your body decays

Toe your line and play the game

Let the anaesthetic cover it all

Till one day they call your name

You konw it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for

Your trouth is all the same


Lock your door but the rain is pouring

Through your window pane

Baby now your struggle's all in vain


For we who grow up tall and proud

In the shadow of the mushroom cloud

Convinced our voice can't be heard

We just wanna scream it louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for

Just surrender and it won't hurt at all

You just got time to say your prayers

While you're waiting the hammer to fall
