Dan Bull – All Fall Down Lyrics

All Fall Down Lyrics – Dan Bull

Come on
Walk beside me
Stroll through the lavender fields
How the mighty have fallen
Reduced to scavenging meals
Now you’re bartering in markets, trying to salvage a deal
Just another face in the crowd now, down at your heel
Your crown disappeared
You peon
How does it feel? (How does it feel)
Those wounds won’t close
If you don’t allow them to heal (Allow them to heal)
What goes around, comes around
It’s a wheel
Hear the peal of the bells as a town is revealed
Outlook: severe
How come these people here don’t realise disease is rife?
Well, they will
When they’re colliding with it at the speed of life
All you need’s a flea to climb on you then leave a bite
Then even Jesus Christ won’t heed your pleas and cries to be revived
So don’t be surprised (Down)
These streets are ligned (Down)
With people either recently deceased or dying (Down)
Piled up in a heap and lying
And I don’t mean it’s sleepy time (Down)
You’re shaken awake by the quake (Down)
Of the plague (Down)
Taking away every sacred thing you leave behind

All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All
Fall
Down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All
Fall
Down

Ring a ring of roses
Life ain’t a bed of roses
Though in the end we’re all fertiliser that decomposes
But the show must go on, though
Isn’t that what growth is?
Throwing flowers over your grave
Grief is showbiz
Stones, styx, ferrymen in boats, myths, Moses
Below the ground, your bones are bound
And nobody’ll notice
Not only you, but every human being you’re close with
The only thing we’re guaranteed indeed is the prognosis
It seems hopeless
Though, instead it’s rather freeing
Knowing ends are tied to every fiber of your being
Retirement’s a requirement
Requiesce is mausoleums
So instead of crying
Try a requiem of “Capre diem!”

Chances
Vanish
Hammers
Clang
Barren
Sands
And ravaged
Lands
Lad is
Clad in
Ragged
Strands
Grab his
Hand
As shadows
Dance

All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All
Fall
Down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All
Fall
Down

En garde!
Don’t
Start a fight you can’t revoke
Cross my heart of oak
When I’m provoked I’ll fire my bow
You look like a hardy bloke
But I could probably poke your heart in
So hard it’s sliced in half like an artichoke
So arteries flow like wine at bacchanalian parties
Thrown back in ancient times
Traitors lie within the heart of Rome
Now we live in spartan times
You don’t want this smoke
It isn’t smart to spar with fire
Why? You’re sure to choke!
Start to show the warning signs
You more than find it hard to cope
‘Cause your performance right here’s far below a masterstroke
The morning light’s a falling star before the darkness grows
From port to starboard bow
It’s pointless now to start to harbour hope

Crashing
Waves
Splashing
Spray
Smacking
Pain
Smashing
Brains
Slashing
Flame
Rats in
Caves
Catching
Plague
Rapping
AY!

All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All
Fall
Down
All fall down
All fall down
All fall down
All
Fall
Down
