  • When the walls fall down
    On your old town
    Then you begin

    See I had these walls
    Built up so strong
    Built when I was young
    In wars I've won

    But if I'm alone
    Stone upon stone
    So tall I could not see
    Beyond my wall

    But your walls fall down
    And your walls fall down
    And when walls come down
    On your old town
    You begin

    A bit unassured
    A bit insecure
    I climbed up
    And saw the world I lacked
    And my fist stone cracked
    Foundations collapsed
    Standing on the ground
    In stone I found

    That your walls fall down
    And your walls fall down
    And when walls come down
    On your old town
    You begin

    Got herd off the land
    From where you stand
    Beneath a shelter built by many hands
    There is a stone
    And you've locked the door
    Of people you once were
    You came for war

    And your walls fall down
    Walls fall down
    Walls fall down
    Like a stone falls down
    I'm no stone
    I'm no stone
    Its just a stone
    Stone falls down
    Says he's a stone
    (Walls fall down
    Walls fall down)
    No man's a stone
