Leaves are fallin' down on the beautiful ground
I heard a story from the man in red
He said, the leaves are fallin' down
Such a beautiful sound
Son, I think you'd better go ahead
But you always hold your head up high
Cause it's a long, long, long way down
This town was meant for passing through
Boy, it ain't nothin' new
Now go and show 'em that the world stayed round
But it's a long, long, long way down

You better run for the hills
Before they burn
Listen to the sound of the world
