Tumbling Down

This song is by Dougie MacLean and appears on the album Singing Land (1985).

Seaward they came
On the wings of the wind, on the edge of the flame
Yo these ancient shores
For the cancer they bring, it destroys as it roars

And it's tumbling down
You had your chance but it's tumbling down
And it's tumbling down
You had your chance but it's tumbling down

White as the snow
And leaving no stone unturned as they go
Your sacred past
They violate and consume to the last

And it's tumbling down
You had your chance but it's tumbling down
And it's tumbling down
You had your chance but it's tumbling down

Dark black harmony
Has nurtured these plains with a wild mystery
But time's ruling sword
Is held tight in the hands of oppression's warlord

And it's tumbling down
You had your chance but it's tumbling down
And it's tumbling down
You had your chance but it's tumbling down
