Is this a song of greatness diminished, faith lost, the autumn of one's years...or just the prisons in which we are sometimes trapped?


The Mighty Fall

Suddenly it's gone
You cannot see what you were missing
The pain inside has grown so strong
A future lost, no new beginning

Time is moving on
The winds of change swept you aside
Took your faith with all your pride
The years just crawl along

Didn't you hear them calling?
"Brother can you spare a dime?"
Or was it just like any other day?

Oh, couldn't you feel yourself falling?
You really didn't spare the time
To make it unlike any other day

Tortured by the view
You cannot turn your head to see
or look beyond the window
You wonder what you're missing

Nothing is forgiven
You cannot see it's true
You were never one to listen
You turned away and sailed beyond the blue

Oh, how the mighty have fallen
Wonder if you changed your mind
It would seem like any other day

Oh, how the misery claws you
Wonder if you'd had the time
Would it have seemed like any other day?

Time is moving on
You cannot reach what you were missing
The pain inside has grown so strong
A future lost, no new beginning

Any other day
Any other day, the mighty fall
Any other day
