I recall when I was small
How I spent my days alone
The busy world was not for me
So I went and found my own

I would climb the garden wall
With a candle in my hand
I'd hide inside a hall of rock and sand

On the stone an ancient hand
In a faded yellow-green
Made alive a worldly wonder
Often told but never seen

Now and ever bound to labor
On the sea and in the sky
Every man and beast appeared
A friend as real as I

Before the fall when they wrote it on the wall
When there wasn't even any Hollywood
They heard the call and they wrote it on the wall
For you and me we understood

Can it be this sad design
Could be the very same
A woolly man without a face
And a beast without a name

Nothin' here but history
Can you see what has been gone
Memory rush over me
Now I step into the sun

Before the fall when they wrote it on the wall
When there wasn't even any Hollywood
They heard the call and they wrote it on the wall
For you and me we understood

Before the fall when they wrote it on the wall
When there wasn't even any Hollywood
They heard the call and they wrote it on the wall
For you and me we understood
