Empty Walls Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Your empty walls, your empty walls
Pretentious attention, dismissive apprehension
Don't waste your time on coffins today
When we decline from the confines of our mind
Don't waste your time on coffins today

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you see their bodies burning
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication?
Don't you see their bodies burning
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication?

[Chorus]
I want you to be left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls

[Verse 2]
Those empty walls
When we decline from the confines of our mind
Don't waste your time on coffins today

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you see their bodies burning
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication?
Don't you see their bodies burning
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication?

[Chorus]
I want you to be left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls
Want you to be left behind those empty walls
I taunt you to see from behind those empty walls

[Bridge]
From behind those empty walls
From behind those empty walls
The walls
From behind those empty walls
I loved you (From behind those empty walls)
Yesterday, before (From behind those empty walls)
You killed my family (The walls)

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you see their bodies burning
Desolate and full of yearning
Dying of anticipation
Choking from intoxication?
Don't you see their bodies burning (I want you)
Desolate and full of yearning (To be)
Dying of anticipation (Left behind)
Choking from intoxication? (Those empty walls)

[Chorus]
I want you to be left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls
Want you to be left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls
From behind those empty walls
From behind those fucking walls
From behind those goddamn walls
Those walls, those walls

About “Empty Walls”

Serj Tankian´s “Empty Walls” speaks mainly about the war the USA is carrying on against the terroristic members of “Al Qaeda”.

The video intends to show, by filming it in a kindergarten, how childish the situation is.

The music video does an excellent job on approaching a terrifying phenomenon in an innocent way and in the process it also shows us how we are conditioned to war and violence at such a young age and how we are taught that this ways are okay.
