lyrics

THE BIG FALL

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



The crowded cities are growing out of control
And nature is sacrificed by force.
Our thousands of pretties are now taking its toll,
As we’re gonna see it as a matter of course.

Oh, we can’t be turned away from this dead end street
And we can’t be dissuaded from our straight-out greed.

The Big Fall is coming and we’re going downstream,
But its noises cannot rouse us from the dream.


The Tower of Babel is built up again
And we once more won’t reach heaven in the end.
The powerless bubble is just about to break,
But its burst might not induce us to awake.

We don’t want to be troubled with one thing or another
And all these dark thoughts must be kept down and smothered.

The Big Fall is coming and we’re going downstream,
But its noises cannot rouse us from the dream.

We don’t hear it, we don’t feel it
And we just don’t wanna see it,
Cause we are wholly up to the dream.
