Although no game features lyrics, the original song had them (sung by Freddie Mercury).

Here we stand, or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady mercy won't be home tonight

Yeah, you don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Hey, we're just waiting for the hammer to fall

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays

Yeah, toe your line and play their game
Yeah, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same - oh no, oh no
Oh, lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane - oh no - yeah
Baby now your struggle's all vain

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for?
Ah, just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
Eh, while you're waiting for the hammer to hammer to fall
Hey, yes, it's starting to fall, hammer, you know
Hammer to fall, hammer
Waiting for the hammer to fall baby
While you're waiting for the hammer to fall
