Hammer to fall
Here we stand or here we fall
History wonīt care at all
Make the bed light the light
Lady Mercy wonīt be home tonight yeah

You donīt waste no time at all
Donīt hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Weīre 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 yeah

Toe your line and play their game yeah
Let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know itīs time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous
For your truth itīs all the same (oh no oh no)
Lock your door the rain is pouring
Through your window pane (oh no)
Baby now your struggleīs all in vain

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices canīt be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder louder

What the hell we fighting for?
Just surrender and it wonīt hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
While your waiting for the hammer to hammer to fall

Itīs gonna fall
Hammer..you know..hammer to fall
Waiting for the hammer to fall now baby
While youīre waiting for the hammer to fall

Give it to me one more time
