Lyrics

In the Flesh?
03:20
So you thought you 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 find out what's behind these cold eyes?
You'll just have to claw your way through the disguise
The Thin Ice
02:30
Momma loves her baby
And daddy loves you too
And the sea may look warm to you babe
And the sky may look blue

But ooooh babe
Ooooh baby blue
Ooooh Ooohh 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 from behind you
As you claw the thin ice
Another Brick in the Wall (part 1)
03:10
Daddy's flown across the ocean
Leaving just a memory
A snapshot 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
01:51
When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers who would
Hurt the children anyway 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 in the Wall (part 2)
04:00
We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher, 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

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teacher, leave them kids alone
Hey teacher, leave those 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
05:34
Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb
Mother do you think they'll like the song
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls
Mother should I build a wall

Mother should I run for president
Mother should I trust the government
Mother will they put me in the firing line
Is it just a waste of time

Hush now 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 cozy and warm

Oh babe, oh babe, oh babe
Of course Mama's gonna help build the wall

Mother do you think she's good enough for me
Mother do you think she's dangerous to me
Mother will she tear your little boy apart
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 until you get in
Mama will always find out where you've been
Mama's gonna keep you healthy and clean

Oh babe, oh babe, oh babe
You'll always be a baby to me

Mother, did it need to be so high
Goodbye Blue Sky
02:48
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

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
02:08
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
03:31
I am just a new boy
A stranger in this town
Where are all the good times
Who's gonna show this stranger around

I need a dirty woman
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
Oh babe, set me free

I need a dirty woman
I need a dirty girl
One of My Turns
03:37
Day after day, love turns gray
Like the skin on a dying man
And 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 all my turns coming on
I feel
Cold as a 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 favorite axe
Don't look so frightened
This is just a passing phase
One of my bad days

Would you like to watch TV
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
04:16
Oh 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

Oh 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

Oh babe
Don't leave me now
How can you treat me this way
Running away
Oh babe
Why are you running away

Oh babe
Another Brick in the Wall (part 3)
01:15
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 need anything at all

All in all it was all just bricks in the wall
All in all you were all just bricks in the wall
Goodbye Cruel World
01:14
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
04:42
Hey you,
Out there in the cold,
Getting lonely, getting old,
Can you feel me?
Hey you,
Standing in the aisle,
With itchy feet and fading smile,
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 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?
02:40
Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody out there
Nobody Home
03:25
I got a little black book with my poems in
Got a bag, got a toothbrush and a comb
When I'm a good dog they sometimes throw me a bone
I got elastic bands keeping my shoes on
Got those swollen hands blues
Got thirteen channels of shit on the TV to choose from
I got electric light
And I got second sight
I 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 got the obligatory Hendrix perm
And the inevitable pinhole burns
All down the front of my favorite satin shirt
I got nicotine stains on my fingers
I got a silver spoon on a chain
Got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains
I've got wild, staring eyes
And I got a strong urge to fly
But I got nowhere to fly to
Oh babe, when I pick up the phone
There's still nobody home

I got a pair of Gohill's boots
And I got fading roots
Vera
01:33
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
01:27
Bring the boys back home
Bring the boys back home
Don't leave the children on their own
Bring the boys back home
Comfortably Numb
06:22
Hello
Is there anybody in there
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone home

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

Relax
I 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's 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

Ok
Just a little pinprick
There'll be no more ah
But you may feel a little sick

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

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship's 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
01:36
Oh Ma, oh Pa
Does the show go on
Oh Pa, take me home
Oh Ma, let me go

There must be some mistake
I didn't meant to let them take away my soul
Am I too old, is it too late

Oh Ma, oh Pa
Where has the feeling gone
Oh Ma, oh Pa
Will I remember the songs
The show must go on
In the Flesh
04:17
So you thought you might like to go to the show
To feel the warm thrill of confusion, that space cadet glow
I 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
We're gonna find out where you fans really stand

Are there any queers in the theatre tonight
Get them up against the wall
Against the wall
And that one in the spotlight, he don't look right to me
Get him up against the wall
Against the wall

And that one looks Jewish, and that one's a coon
Who let all this riffraff into the room
There's one smoking a joint, and another with spots
If I had my way I'd have all of your shot
Run Like Hell
04:24
Run

You better make your face up in your favorite 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

You better run all day and run all night
And keep your dirty feelings deep inside
And if you're taking your girlfriend out tonight
You better park the car well out of sight
'Cause 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
03:58
You cannot reach me now
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 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 colored cousins home again, my friend
All you need to do is follow the worms
Stop
00:30
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
The Trial
05:20
Good morning, Worm, Your Honour
The Crown will plainly show
The prisoner who now stands before you
Was caught red-handed showing feelings
Showing feelings of an almost human nature
This will not do

Call the schoolmaster

I always said he'd come to no good
In the end, Your Honour
If they'd let me have my way
I could have flayed him into shape
But my hands were tied
The bleeding hearts and artists
Let him get away with murder
Let me hammer him today

Crazy
Toys in the attic, I am crazy
Truly gone fishing
They must have taken my marbles away
(Crazy
Toys in the attic, he is crazy)

You little shit, you're in it now
I hope they throw away the key
You should've talked to me more often than you did
But no, you had to go your own way
Have you broken any homes up lately
Just five minutes, Worm, Your Honour
Him and me alone

Babe
Come to mother, baby
Let me hold you in my arms
M'Lord, I never wanted him to get in any trouble
Why'd he ever have to leave me
Worm, Your Honour, let me take him home

Crazy
Over the rainbow, I am crazy
Bars in the window
There must have been a door there in the wall for when I came in
(Crazy
Over the rainbow, he is crazy)

The evidence before the court is incontravertible
There's no need for the jury to retire
In all my years of judging I have never heard before
Of someone more deserving of the full penalty of the law
The way you made them suffer
Your exquisite wife and mother
Fills me with the urge to deficate
No, Judge, the jury
Since, my friend, you have revealed your deepest fear
I sentence you to be exposed before your peers
Tear down the wall

Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall
Outside the Wall
01:43
All alone or in twos
The ones who really know you
Walk up and down outside the wall
Some hand in hand
Some gather together in bands
The bleeding hearts and artists make their stand
And when they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall
After all, it's not easy
Banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall
