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 find out what's behind these cold eyes?
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise

 

The Thin Ice

Mamma loves her baby
and daddy loves you too
and the sea may look warm to you babe
and the sky may look blue
Ooooooooooooh babe
Oooooooh baby blue
Ooooooooooh ooooooh 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 in the Wall Part I

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

When we grow 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
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 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


 

Mother

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
Ooh ah 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
Ooh ah, 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 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 for 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 untill you come in
Mama will always find out where you've been
Mama's gonna keep you healthy and clean
Ooooh Babe Ooooh Babe Ooooh Babe, you'll always be a baby to me.


Mother, did it need to be so high.

 

Goodbye Blue Sky

Oooooooooooooooooooh
D-d-d-did you see the frightened ones?
D-d-d-did you hear the falling bombs?
D-d-d-did you ever wonder
Why we had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfouled beneath a clear blue sky?
Ooooooooooooooooooh
D-d-d-did you see the frightened ones?
D-d-d-did you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all long gone
But the pain lingers on
Goodbye Blue Sky
Goodbye Blue Sky
Goodbye


 

What Shall We Do Now?

What shall we use to fill the empty spaces
Where waves of hunger roar
Shall we set out across this sea of faces
In search of more and more applause
Shall we buy a new guitar
Shall we drive a more powerful car
Shall we work straight - through the night
Shall we get into fights
Leave the lights on
Drop bombs
Do tours of the East
Contract diseases
Bury bones
Break up homes
Send flowers by phone
Take to drink
Go to shrinks
Give up meat
Rarely sleep
Keep people as pets
Train dogs
Race rats
Fill the attic with cash
Bury treasure
Store up leisure
But never relax at all
With out backs to 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 cold 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.


 

One of my Turns Day after day, love turns grey
Like the skin of 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 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
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?
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

Oooooh 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
Ooooooh babe
Why are you running away? Oooooooh


 

Another Brick in the 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 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

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 you 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
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?

 

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 these 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
They'll be nobody home
I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm
And the inevitable pinhole burns
All down in 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


 

Comfortably Numb

Hello
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
Come on now
I hear your 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 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 ballons
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 pinprick
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


And 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?
Oooh ah 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
We're gonna find out where you fans really stand
Are there any queers in the theater 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
And 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, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run


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 cockleshell shatters
And the hammers batter
Down your door
You better run


Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Run, run, run, run, run, run, 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
'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

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

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 a gain 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

 

The Trial

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 cra -zy, truly gone fishing
They must have taken my marbles away
Crazy toys in the attic I am cra -zy
Call the defendants 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 crazy. 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 cra -zy
Bars in the window
There must have been a door there in the wall


When I came in
Crazy over the rainbow he is cra -zy
The evidence before the court is
Incontravertable, 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
Your peers.


Tear down the wall!.

 

Outside the Wall

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 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 buggers
Wall
