Dated Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers', "Tumblin' Down"
The dated Lyrics:
Here comes the eagle, here comes the bear
And they be fighting to control the Lion dominion
But the load gonna come tumblin' down
But the load gonna come tumblin' down Wayo Wayo
But the load gonna come tumblin' down Jah Jah know
But the load gonna come tumblin' down Jah Jah know
Why They're dated:
The eagle represents the USA and the bear the USSR which is gone. The Lion is the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, an east African image of Jesus Christ. This song is about the Cold War which practically ended when the Revolutions of 1989 occurred. Jah is an Ethiopian name for God, who is eternal. The load "tumbled down" and the Cold War ended with everyone on planet Earth winning.
