Walls

He was young and inspired, nobody could count them all.
He gave them strength with his song, he sang that the morning would come.
They lit him a thousand candles, above their heads there was smoke,
He sang that it's time for the wall to fall...
And they sang along with him:
 
Rip the rebar from the walls!
Rip off your handcuffs, break the whip!
And the walls fall down, fall down, fall down
And will bury the old world!
(x2)
 
Soon they remembered the song and the melody, no words
It brought with it an old tale, goosebumps all over hearts and heads
So they sang, clapped in rhythm, like a bang sounded their clap
The chain heavied, the morning was late...
He still sang and played
 
Rip the rebar from the walls!
Rip off your handcuffs, break the whip!
And the walls fall down, fall down, fall down
And will bury the old world!
(x2)
 
Until they saw how many there are, they felt the strength and time
And with song that the morning was near, they marched on the streets
They tore down statues and tore through brick - He's with us! He's against us!
Who's alone is the greatest threat!
But the singer was also alone.
 
He watched the masses' steady march,
He quietly listened to the roar,
And the walls rose up, rose up, rose up
The chain was heavying at their feet...
 
He watched the masses' steady march,
He quietly listened to the roar,
And the walls rose up, rose up, rose up
The chain was heavying at their feet...
