Hammer To Fall Lyrics

Here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed light the light
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight

We don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
We're just waiting for the hammer to fall

Oh, ev'ry night and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face the Western Way
Build your muscles as your body decays

Toe your line and play their game
Let the anesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous
For your truth it's all the same
Lock your door the rain is pouring
Through your window pane
Baby now your struggle's all in vain

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for ?
Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
While you're waiting for the hammer to fall

this is not an anti war song ppl. This song is anti reaction, or against negative reaction. For in the end, we all have the same end coming for us.

this song is talking about how the the citizens during the war should react and telling them to back down because theres no point in us starting the war so we should just wait for them to start it .
