WILL IT BE OUR DOWNFALL

 

 

IN MANS DAWN WE WERE JUST ONE MORE ANIMAL
TILL A NEW ERA THAT MADE US PRACTICAL
WE LEARNED THAT WE GOT NOWHERE BY STANDING STILL
SO WE STARTED TO PUSH THAT ROCK UP THE HILL
BY RUBBING STICKS WE TURNED THAT SPARK TO A FLAME
WITH THIS NEW FOUND KNOWLEDGE WE SOON MADE OUR NAME

BUT

(CHORUS)

WILL IT BE OUR DOWNFALL
SURFING HIGH UPON THIS WAVE
WILL IT BE OUR DOWNFALL
ARE WE DIGGING OUR OWN GRAVE
WILL IT BE OUR DOWNFALL
OR HAVE WE A CHANCE TO SAVE

WE STARTED OUR QUEST TO MAKE THINGS EASIER
BUT AS EACH DAY PASSED WE JUST GOT GREEDIER
ONE DAY WE CAME TO BLOWS JUST TO PROVE A POINT
PASSING ROUND THE BLAME WHEN THINGS WENT OUT OF JOINT
STILL SEEMS TODAY WERE MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES
WILL THE DAY RISE WHEN WE FINALLY AWAKE

OR

(CHORUS)

WE ALL NOW WHAT IS WRONG
AND HOW TO PUT IT RIGHT
THOUGH WE’RE QUICK TO IGNORE
OUR WORLDS DESPERATE PLIGHT

(SOLO)

NOW THROUGH OUR ADVANCEMENT WE'VE BLED THE WORLD DRY
HOW LONG CAN WE GO ON TURNING A BLIND EYE
HAVE WE PUSHED TECHNOLOGY A BIT TOO FAR
WE'VE DAMAGED THE OZONE LEAVING A HUGE SCAR
FOR US TO MAKE TOMORROW A BETTER DAY
THERE IS A LARGE PRICE THAT WE ALL HAVE TO PAY

NOW

(CHORUS X 2)

WILL IT BE OUR DOWNFALL
DOWNFALL, DOWNFALL

(REPEAT TILL FADE)
