    It could be a slogan that the international established order will use to achieve a One World Government in the spirit of a New World Order even if it means to defy God regardless of the desastrous or catastrophic consequences this will bring for the earth and mankind.

    Wow, it all makes sense now. Thanks.

    I'm a bit bemused as to why anyone would name their house Skyfall though. It has negative connotations and implications of disaster to me (ie: the sky falling in) so that hardly seems a nice atmosphere in which to bring up a young boy.

    But I suppose P&Ws first suggestion of:

    Albert R Broccolis EON Productions presents

    Daniel Craig as Ian Flemings James Bond 007 in

    Dunroamin

    would have been shite even by their standards.

    Skyfall was somethin Wade added at the last minute. He talks about it in an interview. He said the word just came to him and he went with it, they liked it, it stook.

    Now I would have loved to hear, what Adele and Epworth would have been doing with that one... "Take the Dunroamin, when it crumbles..." :O :bz :-bd [-O< :o3

    And this might be the new version of lyrics, unfortunatley Dunroamin only rhymes with foaming and moaning...

    This is the end
    Hold your breath and count to ten
    Feel the earth move and then
    Hear my heart burst again

    For this is the end
    I've drowned and dreamt this moment
    So overdue I owe them
    Swept away, I'm stolen

    Let the Dun roamin,
    When it crumbles
    We will stand moanin
    Face it all together

    Let the Dun roamin,
    When it crumbles
    We will stand moanin
    Face it all together
    At Dunroamin
    At Dunroamin

    Dunroamin is where we start
    A thousand miles and poles apart
    Where worlds collide and days are dark
    You may have my number
    You can take my name
    But you'll never have my heart

    Let the Dun roamin
    (Let the Dun roamin),
    When it crumbles
    (When it crumbles)
    We will stand moanin
    (We will stand moanin)
    Face it all together

    Let the Dun roamin
    (Let the Dun roamin),
    When it crumbles
    (When it crumbles)
    We will stand moaning
    (We will stand moanin)
    Face it all together
    At Dunroamin

    (Let The Dun roamin)
    (When it crumbles)
    (We will stand moanin)
    (Let The Dun roamin)
    (When it crumbles)
    (We will stand moanin)

    Where you go I go
    What you see I see
    I know I'd never be me
    Without the Security of your loving arms
    Keeping me from harm
    Put your hand in my hand
    And we'll stand

    Let the Dun roamin
    (Let the Dun roamin),
    When it crumbles
    (When it crumbles)
    We will stand moanin
    (We will stand moanin)
    Face it all together

    Let the Dun roamin
    (Let the Dun roamin),
    When it crumbles
    (When it crumbles)
    We will stand moanin
    (We will stand moanin)
    Face it all together
    At Dunroamin

    Let the Dun roamin
    We will stand moanin
    At Dunroamin

    Well, Skyfall is the name of the mansion of Bond's parents. We may consider that this name have something related to the environment of the mansion area.
    With that in mind, if you observe in the movie how the night falls when Silva is approaching the mansion and how the sky looks after he left the chopper, you may see the characters in a cloud dark scenario, as if the sky had fallen and only the cloudy dark night remained.

    In the song is an embedded distress call, to an unlikely group (who likes trains). The MOM group said let the guy fall. In the end the different groups overcome together in a selfless act to defeat tearany (which is the geater meaning of the movie). Whoever wrote the song understood the code streams.

    What are you on about? :-/
