About Me

                  Till We Fall


We are walking walking walking

 Along the road to nowhere

 And we never seem to reach a spot

 Where people care

 So we'll go on walking walking walking

 Till we fall.

 We've left the land that spawned us

 Left behind the war and pain

 We've reached the land that spurns us

 So we turn, and walk again

 We'll go on walking walking walking

 Till we fall.

 Through the dark and lonely night times

 Through the dire and dreadful days

 When the children and the old folk

 Drop and fall

 We will chant our ancient hymnal

 In a language of our own

 As the stones and other missiles

 break our bones

 We'll go on walking walking walking

 Till we fall

 We are people of the earth

 Brothers, sisters of the race

 We didn't choose this pathway

 Nor would you

 We need to stop the endless searching

 Make our homes and settle down

 And we plead with you, our brothers,

 Make a space

 Or we go on walking walking walking

 Till we fall.
