Song lyric about the fall of the Berlin Wall

 

Hammers on the Wall

 

The sound of freedom rang

Back in nineteen eighty-nine,

When the iron curtain crumbled

On Berlin's borderline,

The people came from east and west

To answer freedom's call,

And chip their way to liberty

With hammers on the wall.

 

Those hammers on the wall

Beat the rhythm of a song,

That echoed 'cross the land

While the wind sang along,

Every down-trodden soul

In the world heard it all,

The night freedom rang from

Those hammers on the wall.

 

The spirits of the dead

With their blood still in the ground,

Put their hearts into the hammers

And their souls in the sound,

And people of the east and west

In nations great and small,

Could hear the mighty ringing of

The hammers on the wall.

 

Those hammers on the wall

Beat the rhythm of a song,

That echoed 'cross the land

While the wind sang along,

Every down-trodden soul

In the world heard it all,

The night freedom rang from

Those hammers on the wall.

 

Yes, every ear in the world

Heard that iron curtain fall,

The night freedom rang from

Those hammers on the wall.
