Verse 1

Here we stand, here we fall, history don-t care at all

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. Comes to you and to us all, while you-re waiting for the Hammer



Verse 2

Every night, and every day, a little piece of you is falling away

Lift your face, the western way; build your muscles as your body decays

Chorus 2

Toe your line and play the game, let the anaesthetic 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 but your truth; it-s all the same Oh No Oh No

Lock your door but rain is pouring through the windowpane Oh No

Baby, now your struggles are in vein

Verse 3

You who grew up tall and proud, in the shadow of the mushroom cloud

Convinced our voices can-t be heard, so we want to scream it louder and louder and louder

Chorus 3

What the hell we fighting for? Just surrender and it won-t hurt us all

Just got time to say your prayers, while your waiting for the Hammer to

Hammer to fall

Give it to me one more time.

Some of the lyrics may be a bit off; I did this transcription by ear only, lyrics and chords. I would have tabbed the solo but I can-t play lead guitar. Any comments, don-t hesitate.
