Garden Wall

How did it come to this they broke every rule
Now it's everyone's failure and everyone's fool
How could it all so fast come tumbling down
Now it's everyone's failure and everyone's clown

Let me make myself clear I'll disappear over the garden wall
Everything's clear over the garden wall
The sun shines brightly each and every day
It chases my troubles away

We said that we'd overcome the guilt and the fear
And sister and brother held each other near
This land would be yours and oh this land would be mine
But these dreams scattered empty and twisted in time
