For as long as I remember
And as far as I can see
There are pilgrims in a valley
Lost and thirsty just like me
We seek shelter in each other
When the rocks begin to slide
We can’t run from what is coming
Down the mountainside
When it all comes down
It all comes down

From the ground we were created
To the ground we will return
Every moment that we’ve borrowed
Every token that we’ve earned
It was His in the beginning
And it’s His to take away
And we can’t be sure ‘bout nothing
But we’ll surely know one day
When it all comes down
It all comes down

And this vapor of a life will vanish on the wind
Every road I’ve traveled on will come to an end
He’ll come riding in and steal me up in a rush
Take my place in the light
Leave my bones in the dust

So I won’t root myself too deeply
In this valley where we dwell
I won’t tie myself to nothing
That tells my soul it isn’t well
I will wait and I will wonder
Only time will tell
When it all comes down
It all comes down

And I will leave this vessel broken down on the shore
Any shadows down below won’t haunt me anymore
Any shackles on my hands will turn to rust
Take my place in the light
Leave my bones in the dust
