All Fall Down: the Redneck Wanderer’s Song of Raw Feet

Now as Ah climb up the mound on the pillar of dreams

Ah can see many things they just ain’t as they seem!

We got a strong leader with an army behind

The people are in misery yet he’s like deaf dumb and blind

He got broad shoulder and warrior’s chest

Ya think this boy’s a hero?

Damn son!

Bitch yer got played!

 

It’s hard to lie there all awake in the night

When you’re the only motherfucker remotely cravin’ the light

We all wander in the shadows in the frozen gloom

And the only place of quiet is the tomb!

 

As Ah wade in the river of a healing renewal

Ah see a group of people receiving sawdust as gruel

Their stomachs all ache and they’re all unemployed

But they say ‘That’s how it works, it’ll never change. Suck it up. BOOOOYYY!

They all got no hope and no reason to live

But they won’t listen to a single explanation Ah give

 

It’s hard to lie there all awake in the night

When you’re the only motherfucker remotely cravin’ the light

We all wander in the shadows in the frozen gloom

And the only place of quiet is the tomb!

 

Now as Ah wander in the desert of a great civil war

I see armies setting fire to their neighbours next door

The burners they be patriots and burned they be traitors

They feed their brother’s children to them fierce alligators

But when I say you all the same and the enemy is other

They all cast down their arms in rage cos they be cursin’ their brother!

 

It’s hard to lie awake at night

When you’re the only motherfucker remotely cravin’ the light

We all wander in the shadows in the frozen gloom

And the only place of quiet is the tomb!

 

All bow down boys, all bow down!

Fall down like dominoes boys, w’all fall down…
