“The Mighty Are Falling” Lyrics

There’s a whole family livin’ on welfare
But they still believe in the power of prayer

A-look at how the mighty have come down low (The mighty are fallin’)
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

The preacher said the streets are paved with gold
It takes all of your money just to say so

A-standin’ there in your Sunday best
It’s just an example you set for the rest

Look at how the mighty have come down low (The mighty are fallin’)
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

[break]

(The mighty are fallin’ every day)
(The mighty are fallin’, get out of the way)

Look at how the mighty have come down low, the mighty are fallin’
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

You been caught with your hands in the jar
You know love don’t take no MasterCard

Look at how the mighty have come down low (The mighty are fallin’)
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

Look at how the mighty have come down low, the mighty are fallin’
When you stand on the mountain
There’s only one way to go (The mighty are fallin’)

You wanna get down on your knees and pray
You’ve got the eye of the needle on judgement day

The mighty are fallin’
The mighty are fallin’
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’ every day)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’, get out of the way)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’ every day)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’, get out of the way)
The mighty are fallin’ (The mighty are fallin’ every day)
The mighty are fallin’
