Hammer To Fall

Brian May

Yeah, here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light - eah
Lady Mercy won't be home tonight

Yeah, you don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Hey, we're just waiting
For the hammer to fall - yeah

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays, yeah

Toe your line and play their game
Yeah, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall - yeah

Rich or poor or famous
For your truth it's all the same - oh no, oh no
Oh, lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane - oh no
Yeah, baby now your struggle's all vain

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder, and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for?
Ah, just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
heh, while you're waiting for the hammer to, hammer to fall
Hey, yes - it's starting to fall eh, hammer, you know
Yeah, hammer to fall - wooh, ah, hey, eh woowoo, haeh hammer
Waiting for the hammer to fall baby - yeah
Yeah while you're waiting for the hammer to fall
Give it to me one more time!

"Hammer To Fall"
Una delle due copertine del singolo "Hammer To Fall" (1984)

NOTE: Tratto dall'album "The Works", 1984. Il singolo raggiunse l'8° posto nelle classifiche inglesi.
Per questo tour, il brano viene suonato con un arrangiamento molto diverso; la prima parte viene eseguita come una ballata (con Brian May alla voce), per poi sfociare nel classico riff dell'originale nella parte finale (cantata da Paul Rodgers o da Roger Taylor, a seconda del concerto).
