I feel like a cymbal crash
I fall like a symbol crash
One Billion People
One Billion People
what can you know?
what do you know?
You cannot say it as loud
You cannot say it as tall

I see the cymbal crash
I see the symbol clash
in the alleys that run
in the shadow
of the Great Wall
in the turning pages
of little red books
in giant pandas
gifts from Middle Earth

I feel the cymbal crash
I feel the symbol clash
what is the sound
when towers fall?
what is the sound
when towers fall?

I hear the cymbal crash
I hear the symbol clash
One Billion People
One Billion People
what can you know?
what do you know?
