Fall of Rome Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The city is crumbling
Like Rome or Pompeii
And there's nothing to do
But get out of the way
When you know you can save no one

Like an empty old bottle
The ship has gone down
The Titanic is sinking
And the band plays on
And you know you can save no one

[Chorus:]
Maybe a message is coming to you
In the middle of nowhere from out of the blue
Then cross the dark distance and lay down your guns
For Rome it has fallen
And morning has begun

In anyone's heartache
And in anyone's blues
Is the beautiful feeling
Of nothing to lose
When you know you can save no one

[Chorus]
