When the walls fall down
On your old town
Then you began

See I had these walls
Built up so strong
Built when I was young
In wars I've won

But if I'm alone
Stone upon stone
So tall I could not see
Beyond my wall

But your walls fall down
And your walls fall down
And when walls come down
On your old town
You began

A bit unassured
A bit insecure
I climbed up to the top
And saw I lacked
And my fist stone cracked
Foundation collapsed
Standing on the ground
In stones I found

That your walls fall down
And your walls fall down
And when walls come down
On your old town
You began

In other lands
From where you stand
Beneath a shelter built by many hands
There is a stone
And you've locked the door
Of people you were swore
you came for war

And your walls fall down
Walls fall down
Walls fall down
Like a stone falls down
I'm no stone
I'm no stone
Its just a stone
Stone falls down
Says hes a stone
(Walls fall down
Walls fall down)
No man's a stone

    I think it means that a person can't live alone as an island. You can't build 'walls' around yourself to live your life. You can only truly live your life when you shed those walls that's separating you from the rest of the world; that's when "you begin" to live a normal, regular, interdependent life. No man's supposed to be completely autonomous, everything in life in interdependent and when that idea has been embraced is when one can actually live life to the fullest.
