When The Wall Falls Down


Where will you be when the wall falls down?

Flesh is fragile, it bleeds when pricked
The mind is stubborn like stone and brick
It feels so solid, yet wonders why
With all its strength, it still will die

Beware the shadow in the cave
It gives protection, it captures slaves
It sucks the lifeblood from every side
It grows in power when worlds collide

Where will you be when the wall falls down?

Beat the bushes to find the clues
Shocking headlines will sell the news
The path is beaten from love to hate
It calls the devil, he’s at the gate

The greatest challenge of modern times
Are righteous tools and evil minds
Countless creatures, both great and small
Stand divided, as one we fall

Where will you be when the wall falls down?

    Love that distorted vocal on the verse! Great development, powerful song theme, solid bass line, and a groove I can thump to. What more is there? Nice work Graham 🙂

    Peace,
    Rich

    Uhh the 80 20 rule huh? This song you left out the 20% at the end. SOunds like you ran out of thoughts and decided just to jam the rest out to fill the track. C’mon when you prop yourself up with a theory shouldn’t you practice what you preach? A song shouldn’t have almost a minute of the same progression with just extra fills at the end. I rate it a 3 maybe only because it does have a nice hook or two. But to just jam it out sems like an unfunished statement by the writer. JMHO

    When it comes to art and subjectivity, one man’s 20% is another man’s 80%. Just to clarify, I didn’t run out of thoughts. The horns and synth at the end were thought out and carefully arranged. Besides, I can think of many songs that end instrumentally on a vamp so to say that a song “shouldn’t” do that is obviously not a hard rule but your personal preference. Also, your comments are regarding the arrangement and not the song. The lyrics and melody make up the song. Not the instrumentation or production. Those are separate processes and facets of the music. Still, I appreciate some of your comments. About 20% of them. heh.
