In The Flesh               Lyrics

 

 

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'd like to find out what's behind these cold eyes

you'll just have to claw your way through the disguise

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Brick In The Wall Part 1                 Lyrics

 

 

 

Daddy's flown across the ocean
leaving just a memory
A snapshot in the family album
Daddy what else did you leave 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 Thin Ice               Lyrics

 

 

 

Mama 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 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 you depth and out of your mind

with your fear flowing out behind you

as you claw The Thin Ice

 

 

 

 

 

Another Brick In The Wall Part 2                 Lyrics

 

 

 

We don't need no education

We don't need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teachers leave the kids alone

Hey teacher leave us kids alone

All in all it was just another brick in the wall

All in all you're just another brick in the wall

 

(Repeat Once) Reapeating Sung By Islington Green School Choir

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Happiest Days Of Our Lives                 Lyrics

 

 

 

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 any weakness

however carefully hidden by the kids

But in town it was well known

when they got home at night

their fat and psychopatic wives would thrash them

within inches of their lives

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mother                       Lyrics

 

 

 

Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb

Mother do you think they'll like the song

Mother do 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, 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 for me

Mother do you think she's dangerous to me

Mother will she tear your little boy apart

Ooh ah 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 baby healthy and clean

Ooooh babe, oooo babe

You'll always be a baby to me

 

Mother did it need to be so high

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Goodbye Blue Sky                 Lyrics

 

 

 

Ooooooooooooooooh

Did you see the frightened ones

Did you hear the fallings bombs

Did you ever wonder

why we had to run for shelter

when the promise of brave new world

unfurled beneath a clear blue sky

 

Oooooooooooooooooh

Did you see the frightened ones

Did you hear the fallings bombs

The flames are all long gone

but the pain lingers on

Goodbye blue sky

Goodbye Blue sky

Goodbye

 

 

 

 

Empty Spaces             Lyrics   (Sometimes Confused With “What Shall We Do Now”)

 

 

 

 

What shall we use to fill the empty spaces

where we used to talk

How shall I fill the final places

How shall I complete the wall

 

 

 

 

 

Young Lust                 Lyrics

 

 

 

I am just a new boy

A stranger in this town

Where are all the good times

Who's gonna show this stranger around?

Oooooooh I need a dirty woman

Oooooooh I need a dirty girl

 

Will some cold woman in this desert land

make me feel like a real man

Take this rock and roll refugee

Ooooh babe set me free

Oooooooh I need a dirty woman

Oooooooh I need a dirty girl

 

 

 

 

 

One Of My Turns                  Lyrics

 

 

 

Day after day, love turns gray

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 anymore

 

And I can feel one of 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 favourite axe

Don't look so frightened

this is just a passing phase

Just 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                        Lyrics

 

 

 

 

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

I need you babe

Why are you running away?

Ooooooh babe

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Brick In The Wall Part 3                 Lyrics

 

 

 

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                        Lyrics

 

 

 

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                                  Lyrics

 

 

 

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 fantasy

The wall was to 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

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?                      Lyrics

 

 

 

Is There Anybody Out There?

 

 

 

 

Nobody Home                        Lyrics

 

 

 

(I’ve Got A Little Black Book With My Poems In It)

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 good dog they sometimes throw me a bone in

I've got elastic bands keeping my shoes on

Got those swollen hand blues

Got thirteen channels of shit on the TV 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 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 Gohill's boots

and I've got fading roots

 

 

 

 

Vera                Lyrics

 

 

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                         Lyrics

 

 

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                            Lyrics

 

 

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

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're 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 the 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 aaaaaaaaaah!

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're 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

and I've become comfortably numb

 

 

 

 

 

The Show Must Go On                      Lyrics

 

 

Oooh Ma, Oooh Pa

Must the show go on?

Oooh Pa take me home

Oooh Ma let me go

 

(Do I have to stand up

wild eyed in the spotlight

What a night mare

Why don't I turn and run)

 

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?

Oooh ah!

The show must go on

 

 

 

 

 

 

In The Flesh (Part 2)                          Lyrics

 

 

 

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

There's one in the spotlight

He don't look right to me

Get him up 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                        Lyrics

 

 

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

when the cockle shell shatters

and the hammers batter down your door

You better run like hell

 

You better run all day

and run all night

And keep your dirty feelings deep inside

And if you take your girlfriend out tonight

You better park the car well out of sight

'Cos if they catch you in the backseat

trying to pick her locks

They're gonna send you back to mother

in a cardboard box

You better run

 

 

 

 

 

Waiting For The Worms                    Lyrics

 

 

Ooooh you cannot reach me now
Ooooh now 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 dead wood
Waiting to clean up the city
Waiting to follow the worms
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 queens 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                 Lyrics

 

 

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                     Lyrics

 

 

Good morning worm your honour

The crown will plainly show

The Prisoner who now stand before you

was caught red handed showing feelings

Showing feelings of an almost human nature

This will not do

Call the schoolmaster

 

I have 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

(Surely gone fishing)

They must have taken my marbles away

 

Call the defendant's wife

You little shit, you're in it now

I hope they throw away the key

You should have 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'lud 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

when I came in

Crazy, over the rainbow, he is crazy

 

The evidence before the court is incontrovertible

There's no need for the jury to retire

In all my years of judging

I have never heard before

of someone more deserving

the full penalty of law

The way you made them suffer

Your exquisite wife and mother

fills me with the urge to defecate

Since, my friend you have revealed

your deepest fear

I sentence you to be exposed

before you peers

Tear down the wall

Tear down the wall

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outside The Wall                   Lyrics

 

 

All alone, or in twos

The ones who really love you

walk up and down outside the wall

Some hand in hand

Some gathered together in bands

The bleeding hearts and the artists

make their stand

And when they've given you their all

Some stagger and falls

after all it's not easy banging your heart against

some mad buggers wall
