Alarm — How The Mighty Fall lyrics

Once you held your finger on the trigger
Now the gun is pointing at your head
Once you reigned supreme
Over all that you could see
Now you walk on the other side of the street

How the mighty fall
I've seen it all before
From the highest heights
To the lowest of lows
How the mighty fall

Once your words were the first and last on the subject
Now they hang like a noose around your neck
Once you held the light
That could be seen from near and far
Now you fall and stumble in the dark

How the mighty fall
I've seen it all before
From the highest heights
To the lowest of lows
How the mighty fall

Once you held the secrets of the world within your hands
Now you're just another grain of sand
Once you were the first
Revered to the last
Now they talk about your fall from grace

How the mighty fall
I've seen it all before
From the highest heights
To the lowest of lows
How the mighty fall

(How the mighty fall)
How the mighty fall
(How the mighty fall)
How the mighty fall
(How the mighty fall)
The harder, the harder, the harder they fall
(How the mighty fall)
The harder, the harder, the harder they fall
(How the mighty fall)
How the mighty fall
