We’ve seen a giant fall

We’ve seen a giant fall
And all of his enemies call him a fool
His own supporters broke the wall
His on desire broke down his rule

But still he does not see
He’s as blind as blind can be
His reign is a little pool
The whole world is a sea

There is only the truth
That buttons his shirt
There is only the truth
That feels his hurt

Accept the wind
When it cools the flame
Accept and move on
And accept the pain

I am just a little man
He made me feel six foot tall
He taught me to believe in myself
To break down my own concrete wall

He fought for me on the mountain
He fought for me on the sea
He rose up like a bright star
A symbol to all who are free

He rose too high
He got too fat
The other stars knew
It would not last

Like a rocket
To the moon
That exploded above
Much too soon

Life comes on
Life goes away
People like him
Have had their day

Love is not complex
It does not mix with hate
It shines more than every star
It lives in every date

The world moves on as one
For a meeting with a fate of its own
It leaves failures behind
It leave them all alone

Criminal Deng as hard
Criminal Deng was strong
His biceps were attached to steel bars
He stood on feet of stone

Standing in a government square
Where people are made to group
Practicing their healthy routine
Surrounded by government troops

what blocks the sun from shining
what favours the night
what chains up the feet of men
what blots out the light

The seething mass of humanity
That must seethe
The reckless mass of humanity
That must wreck

And the wind answers at last
Carrying trouble on it back

Man does
And man falls short
And out of his heart
Walks many a corpse

His hobby I power
He pretends to love his people
Give him power
And he only wants more
He’s a man with no heart

His food is power
He fattens himself
He sits at the table with his porridge
He eats until it comes out of his ears
He’s a man with no heart

When he takes from the poor he says
Give me more
He promises to change the law
But he wipes the floor
With the love they gave him
He’s a man with no heart
