Gary Numan – The Fall lyrics

Put your hate in a box
See how it bleeds for you
I've watched you take your life and tear it apart.
Put your pain in a box
I'll send it back to you
What have you become? A shadow of a man.

Do you fall like rain on the crying?
Cold and alone like the bitter and dying
Do you fall like dust on a ruin?
Empty and dead like the life you are loosing

Put your lies in a box
How have they worked for you?
Did they win you back the things that you lost?

Put your shame in a box
How could you be so wrong?
You sit there broken and the world moves on

How does it feel? I'll spare a little thought for "The Crow"
How does it feel? Living in the black of your soul
How does it feel? Like a beggar out in the cold
How does it feel? With nothing but the truth left untold

Do you fall like tears on an ocean?
Drowning in rage like a poisoned emotion
Do you fall like a fading desire?
Lost and unloved – a forgotten "messiah"

Do you fall like rain on the crying?
Cold and alone like the bitter and dying
Do you fall like dust on a ruin?
Empty and dead like the life you are loosing
