THE WALL (1979)

IN THE FLESH?

So ya
Thought ya
Might like to go to the show.
To feel the warm thrill of confusion
That space cadet glow.
Tell me is something eluding you sunshine?
Is this not what you expected to see?
If you wanna to find out what's behind these cold eyes?
You'll just have to claw your way through this
Disguise

THE THIN ICE

Momma loves her baby 
And Daddy loves you too 
And the sea may look warm to you Babe 
And the sky may look blue 
Ooooh Babe 
Ooooh Baby Blue 
Ooooh Babe 
If you should go skating 
On the thin ice of modern life 
Dragging behind you the silent reproach 
Of a million tear stained eyes 
Don't be surprised, when a crack in the ice 
Appears under your feet 
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind 
With your fear flowing out behind you 
As you claw the thin ice

 

ANOTHER BRICK INTHE WALL (PART I)

Daddy's flown across the ocean
Leaving just a memory
A snap shot in the family album
Daddy what else did you leave for me?
Daddy what d'ya leave behind for me?
All in all it was just a brick in the wall
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall



THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF OUR LIVES


When we grew up and went to school 
There were certain teachers who would 
Hurt the children any way they could 
By pouring their derision 
Upon anything we did 
And exposing every weakness 
However carefully hidden by the kids 
But in the town it was well known 
When they got home at night, their fat and 
Psychopathic wives would thrash them 
Within inches of their lives

ANOTHER BRICK INTHE WALL (PART II)

We don't need no education 
We don't need no thought control 
No dark sarcasm in the classroom 
Teachers leave them kids alone 
Hey teacher leave them kids alone 
All in all it's just another brick in the wall 
All in all you're just another brick in the wall 

[chorus at end by pupils from the Fourth Form Music Class Islington Green School, London]

We don't need no education 
We don't need no thought control 
No dark sarcasm in the classroom 
Teachers leave them kids alone 
Hey teacher leave us kids alone 
All in all you're just another brick in the wall 
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

 

MOTHER

Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?
Ooooh aah, mother, should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
Ooooh aah, is it just a waste of time?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you
Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing
She won't let you fly but she might let you sing
Mama's gonna keep baby cosy and warm

Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe
Of course Mama's gonna help build the wall

Mother, do you think she's good enough?
Mother, do you think she's dangerous?
Mother, will she tear your little boy apart?
Oooh aah, mother, will she break my heart?

Hush now, baby, baby, don't you cry
Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you
Mama won't let anyone dirty get through
Mama's gonna wait up till you get in
Mama will always find out where you've been
Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean

Ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe, ooooh, babe
You'll always be a baby to me

Mother, didn't need to be so high

GOODBYE BLUE SKY

[Childs voice:]
Look, Mummy. There's an airplane up in the sky.

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooooh 
Did you see the frightened ones 
Did you hear the falling bombs 
Did you ever wonder 
Why we had to run for shelter 
When the promise of a brave new world 
Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky 
Oooooooo ooo ooooo oooh 
Did you see the frightened ones 
Did you hear the falling bombs 
The flames are all long gone 
But the pain lingers on 
Goodbye blue sky 
Goodbye blue sky 
Goodbye 
Goodbye

 

EMPTY SPACES

[backwards message:]
Hello, Luka [hunters]... Congratulations. You have just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to Old Pink, care of the Funny Farm, Chalfont...
Roger! Carolyne's on the phone!
Okay

What shall we use
To fill the empty spaces
Where we used to talk?
How shall I fill
The final places?
How should I complete the wall



YOUNG LUST

I am just a new boy 
A stranger in this town 
Where are all the good times 
Who's gonna show this stranger around? 
Ooooooooh I need a dirty woman 
Ooooooooh I need a dirty girl 
Will some woman in this desert land 
Make me feel like a real man 
Take this rock and roll refugee 
Oooh Babe set me free 
Ooooooooh I need a dirty woman 
Ooooooooh I need a dirty girl. 
Ooooooooh I need a dirty woman 
Ooooooooh I need a dirty girl.

 

ONE OF MY TURNS

Day after day, love turns grey
Like the skin of a dying man
Night after night, we pretend it's all right
But I have grown older and
You have grown colder and
Nothing is very much fun any more.

And I can feel one of my turns coming on.
I feel cold as razor blade
Tight as a tourniquet
Dry as a funeral drum,
Run to the bedroom, in the suitcase on the left
You'll find my favourite axe
Don't look so frightened
This is just a passing phase
Just one of my bad days
Would you like to watch T. V.?
Or get between the sheets?
Or contemplate the silent freeway?
Would you like something to eat?
Would you like to learn to fly?
Would you like to see me try?
Would you like to call the cops?
Do you think it's time I stopped?
Why are you running away?

DON´T LEAVE ME NOW

Ooooh Babe 
Don't leave me now 
Don't say it's the end of the road 
Remember the flowers I sent 
I need you Babe 
To put through the shredder 
In front of my friends 
Ooooh Babe 
Don't leave me now 
How could you go? 
When you know how I need You 
To beat to a pulp on a Saturday night 
Ooooh Babe 
Don't leave me now 
How can you treat me this way 
Running away 
Ooooh Babe 
Why are you running away? 
Ooooh Babe!

 

ANOTHER BRICK INTHE WALL (PART III)

I don't need no arms around me 
I don't need no drugs to calm me 
I have seen the writing on the wall 
Don't think I need anything at all 
No don't think I'll need anything at all 
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall 
All in all you were just bricks in the wall

GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD

 

Goodbye cruel world 
I'm leaving you today 
Goodbye 
Goodbye 
Goodbye 
Goodbye all you people 
There's nothing you can say 
To make me change 
My mind 
Goodbye.

HEY YOU

Hey you ! out there in the cold 
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me 
Hey you ! Standing in the aisles 
With itchy feet and fading smiles, can you feel me 
Hey you ! don't help them to bury the light 
Don't give in without a fight. 
Hey you ! out there on your own 
sitting naked by the phone would you touch me 
Hey you ! with your ear against the wall 
Waiting for someone to call out would you touch me 
Hey you ! would you help me to carry the stone 
Open your heart, I'm coming home 
But it was only a fantasy 
The wall was too high as you can see 
No matter how he tried he could not break free 
And the worms ate into his brain. 
Hey you ! out there on the road 
Always doing what you're told, can you help me 
Hey you ! out there beyond the wall 
Breaking bottles in the hall, can you help me 
Hey you ! don't tell me there's no hope at all 
Together we stand, divided we fall.

IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE?


Is there anybody out there?
Is there anybody out there?
Is there anybody out there?
Is there anybody out there?

NOBODY HOME


I've got a little black book with my poems in 
I've got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in 
When I'm a good dog they sometimes throw me a bone in 
I got elastic bands keeping my shoes on 
Got those swollen hand blues. 
Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from 
I've got electric light 
And I've got second sight 
I've got amazing powers of observation 
And that is how I know 
When I try to get through 
On the telephone to you 
There'll be nobody home 
I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm 
And I've got the inevitable pinhole burns 
All down the front of my favourite satin shirt 
I've got nicotine stains on my fingers 
I've got a silver spoon on a chain 
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains 
I've got wild staring eyes 
I've got a strong urge to fly 
But I've got nowhere to fly to 
Ooooh Babe when I pick up the phone 
There's still nobody home 
I've got a pair of Gohills boots 
And I've got fading roots.

VERA

 

Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn 
Remember how she said that 
We would meet again 
Some sunny day 
Vera! Vera! 
What has become of you 
Does anybody else in here 
Feel the way I do ?

 

BRING THE BOYS BACK HOME

 

Bring the boys back home 
Bring the boys back home 
Don't leave the children on their own 
Bring the boys back home

 

COMFORTABY NUMB

Hello,
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?

Come on now
I hear you're feeling down
Well, I can ease your pain
And get you on your feet again

Relax
I'll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

O.K.
Just a little pin prick
There'll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it's working, good
That'll keep you going through the show
Come on, it's time to go.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb.

 

THE SHOW MUST GO ON

Oooh Ma Oooh Pa 
Must the show go on 
Oooh Pa take me home 
Oooh Ma let me go 
There must be some mistake 
I didn't mean to let them 
Take away my soul 
Am I too old is it too late 
Oooh Ma Oooh Pa 
Where has the feeling gone? 
Oooh Ma Oooh Pa 
Will I remember the songs? 
Oooooh aah the show must go on.

IN THE FLESH

So ya
Thought ya might like to go to the show
To feel the warm thrill of confusion
That space cadet glow

I've got some bad news for you sunshine
Pink isn't well, he stayed back at the hotel

And they sent us along as a surrogate band
And we're going to find out where you fans really stand

Are there any queers in the theatre tonight?
Get 'em up against the wall (against the wall)!
There's one in the spotlight, he don't look right to me
Get 'em up against the wall (against the wall)!

That one looks Jewish and that one's a coon
Who let all this riff raff into the room?
There's one smoking a joint and another with spots
If I had my way I'd have all of you shot

 

RUN LIKE HELL


Run, run, run, run [repeat line four times]
You better make your face up in 
Your favourite disguise 
With your button down lips and your 
Roller blind eyes 
With your empty smile 
And your hungry heart 
Feel the bile rising from your guilty past 
With your nerves in tatters 
As the cockleshell shatters 
And the hammers batter 
Down your door 
You better run 

Run, run, run, run [repeat line four times]
You better run all day 
And run all night 
And keep your dirty feelings 
Deep inside. And if your 
Takin' your girlfriend 
Out tonight 
You better park the car 
Well out of sight 
'Cos if they catch you in the back seat 
Trying to pick her locks 
They're gonna send you back to mother 
In a cardboard box 
You better run

WAITING FOR THE WORMS

Ooooh you cannot reach me now 
Ooooh no matter how you try 
Goodbye cruel world it's over 
Walk on by 
Sitting in a bunker here behind my wall 
Waiting for the worms to come 
In perfect isolation here behind my wall 
Waiting for the worms to come 
Waiting to cut out the deadwood 
Waiting to clean up the city 
Waiting to follow the worms 
Waiting to put on a black shirt 
Waiting to weed out the weaklings 
Waiting to smash in their windows 
And kick in their doors 
Waiting for the final solution 
To strengthen the strain 
Waiting to follow the worms 
Waiting to turn on the showers v And fire the ovens 
Waiting for the queers and the coons 
And the reds and the Jews 
Waiting to follow the worms 
Would you like to see Britannia 
Rule again my friend 
All you have to do is follow the worms 
Would you like to send our coloured cousins 
Home again my friend 
All you need to do is follow the worms.

STOP

Stop
I wanna go home
Take off this uniform
And leave the show
And I'm waiting in this cell
Because I have to know
Have I been guilty all this time
