Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1:]
You don't have to launch a missile to break down my defense
You don't need a fighter jet to end our arguments
We don't have to be like everyone to use our common sense

So I guess it's time we burned the documents

[Hook:]
Cause you're crazy I'm crazy so there ain't a thing to lose
Except our pride it's suicide of all we ever knew
In some ways we're east and west and the wall is coming down
Sometimes we celebrate other times we say what have we done
And I feel you holding on and I'm holding on too
But no matter what we say or do the wall is coming down
The wall is coming down
Down down down
I see you coming 'round
Cause your wall is coming down

[Verse 2:]
I don't have to build a fortress to hide what you can't see
I don't have to be the master and hold onto the key
Sometimes I feel so certain that we were meant to be
But I guess it's fine if you disagree

[Hook:]

[Verse 3:]
So whenever we turn the wheel peace talking make a deal
You remind me of Palestine and I feel so Israel
Look at all the walls I've built and look at all the guards you've killed

And if the gates would open would it be more loving
Or would all my fears turn real
So for now I suppress your demonstration and I undress you here's the question
Is this love making or masturbation if every touch feels like instigation
I'm so sure if we all trusted the force of love
Even if our past is awful also break our pride in the torso
Whatever it takes for down these walls go

[Hook:]

[Verse 4:]
In some ways we're east and west and the wall is coming down
Some times we celebrate other times we say what have we done
And I feel you holding on and I'm holding on too
But no matter what we say or do the wall is coming down
The wall is coming down
Down down down
I see you coming 'round
Cause the wall is coming down
