Hiss Golden Messenger – When the Wall Comes Down (Lyric Video)

Lyrics to “When the Wall Comes Down” performed by Hiss Golden Messenger

Whatcha gonna do when the wall comes down
When the wall comes down
What you oughta do is let it lie, let it lie
And in the gathering darkness vow
To never go back

It was built by man and you can tear it down
Tear it down, tear it down
Step back, Jack, from the darkness

Whatcha gonna do when the shackles fall
When the shackles fall
What you oughta do is melt them down
Melt them down
Turn them into tools and make a garden
On the prison grounds

Turn your chains to roses, child
Tear it down, tear it down
Step back, Jack, from the darkness

But while I’m here
I’m gonna sing just like a songbird

Whatcha gonna do when the hunger’s gone
When the hunger’s gone
Pity the child who goes without, goes without
Give him no reason to falter
On his way down

It’s a beautiful world but painful, child
Tear it down, tear it down
Step back, Jack, from the darkness

But while I’m here
I’m gonna sing just like a songbird…
