about

(Snyder/Savarino)

lyrics

When the walls of the Factory went down
When the walls of Berlin went down
When the walls of Warhol went down
Things changed forever

When giants tumble
When giants fall down
When towers crumble
When towers fall down
When Lennon

Shot down by a man
With disillusion in his head
Something broken took over in his mind
He acted and he couldn’t rewind

Now it’s always on mind
Every day and all the time
