Here we stand, and here we fall
History won't care at all
So 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, yeah
Comes to you as to us all
And we're just waiting for the hammer to fall, yeah

Oh, every night, every day
A little piece of you is falling away
So lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays, yeah

Toe your line and play their game
Yeah, let the anaesthetic cover it all, yeah
Till one day they call your name
Until it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same (oh no, oh no)
Lock your doors, rain is pouring
Through your window pane (oh no)
Baby now your struggle's all in vain, yeah

For he 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 we fighting for?
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You've just got time to say your prayers
Until it's time for the hammer to fall

Oh yeah
The hammer to fall, baby
Oh yeah
The hammer to fall

We're just waiting for the hammer to, hammer to, hammer to fall

Give it to me one more time
