lyrics

it surely came as a surprise
when the man who sold the lies
said he’d be late for dinner
and there was nothing you could do
he said he’d make your dreams come true
and you believed him

they said that morning at the store
that they don’t serve your kind no more
was this man joking
the coroner asked you for your name
he said “I’m not the one to blame,
you’re as good as dead,”

the sky has fallen
the sea is brown
they’ve turned the bunkers upside down
darling, when the sky falls on you

and then the minister of shame
insisted he was not to blame
and assumed the role of emperor
some people bowed while others spat
upon his pretentious hat
who was this man kidding?

if the sun don’t rise at dawn
if there’s no grass upon the lawn
is the situation hopeless?
all that will be always was
and it will stay that way because
it has already happened

the sky has fallen
the sea is brown
they’ve turned the bunkers upside down
darling when the sky falls on you

there’s something wrong inside my head
or is it that this mule is dead
or is it slowly dying?
there’s something deep beneath the ground
that’s waiting for the silent sound
of revolution in the air

all that was was meant to be
and that is what my book told me
I do not mean your doctrine
all that will be always was
and it will stay that way because
it has already happened

the sky has fallen
the sea is brown
they’ve turned the bunkers upside down
and the rubble and the rain
God makes you feel His pain
my darling when the sky falls on you
when the sky
falls on you
