Concrete Mountains

Time and time again my friend

I get the feelin' we’ve reached the end

With the little bit of time that we got left to spend

To start the ball rollin' all over again

 

And it’s now – Now or never

Push the button or pull the lever

It’s now – Now or never

Lay down and die or live forever

 

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

Where ya gonna run to?

Tell me where ya gonna hide?

Aaaaah, where ya gonna hide?

 

I went into the city to see what I could find

I been in the hills for a while now

I kinda fell behind

 

There’s a man walking by with a storm in his eye

And he knows that I don’t fit in

But it won’t be long till I finish my song and I hit the hills again

 

But when the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

Where ya gonna run to?

Tell me where ya gonna hide?

Aaaaah, where ya gonna hide?

 

Flashing lights comin' down the street

They’re comin' after me

We’re gonna take you down and poke around

Boy, we’re never gonna set you free

 

But when the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

Where ya gonna run to?

Tell me where ya gonna hide?

Aaaaah, where ya gonna hide?

 

God bless the farmer – he reaps the seeds he sows

That’s something that a banker or a lawyer never know

God bless the President and all the President’s men

They’re taking a chance on a nuclear dance

It’s the country they defend

 

But when the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

Where ya gonna run to?

Tell me where ya gonna hide?

Aaaaah, where ya gonna hide?

 

Take all your trouble

Take all your fears

Take all the problems that have wrapped around the years

Give 'em to the wind

Give 'em to the fiery wind

 

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

When the concrete mountains come tumblin' down

Where ya gonna run to?

Tell me where ya gonna hide?

Aaaaah, where ya gonna hide?
