Empty Walls
Serj Tankian Lyrics


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

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 to be
Left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see
From behind those empty walls

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

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 to be
Left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see
From behind those empty walls
I want you to be
Left behind those empty walls
I taunt you to see from behind those empty 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)

Don't you see their bodies burn
Don't you see their bodies burn
I want you to be left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls
I 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

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


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


I want you

To be

Left behind those empty walls

Taunt you

To see

From behind those empty walls


Those empty walls

When we decline, from the confines of our mind

Don't waste your time, on coffins today


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


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


From behind those empty walls

From behind those empty walls

The walls

From behind those empty walls


I loved you yesterday,

(From behind those empty walls..)

Before you killed my family.

(From behind those empty walls,the walls...)


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

Dying of anticipation

(To be left behind those empty...)

Choking from intoxication


I want you

To be

Left behind those empty walls

Taunt you

(Desolate and full of yearning)

To see

(Dying of anticipation)

From behind those empty walls

(Choking from intoxication...)

Want you to be, left behind those empty walls

Taunt you


To see

From behind those empty walls

(Trust your empty walls, trust your empty walls)

From behind those empty walls

(Trust your empty walls, trust your empty walls)

From behind those fucking walls

(Trust your empty walls, trust your empty walls)

From behind those goddamn walls

Those walls...

Those walls...

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
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
I want you to be
Left behind those empty walls
Taunt you see
From behind those empty walls
Those empty walls
When we decline, from the confines of our mind
Don't waste your time, on coffins today
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
I want you to be
Left behind those empty walls
Taunt you see
From behind those empty walls
I want you to be
Left behind those empty walls
I taunt you to see from behind those empty walls
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)
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)
I want you to be left behind those empty walls
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls
I 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

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...

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,
I want you to be left behind those empty walls,
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls...

Those empty walls,
When we decline,
From the confines of our mind,
Don't waste your time,
On coffins today...

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,
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,
From behind those empty walls,
From behind those empty walls,
The walls!
From behind those empty walls...

I loved you yesterday,
(From behind those empty walls...)
Before you killed my family,

[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,
I want you to be left behind those empty walls,
Taunt you to see from behind those empty walls......

This is honestly one of the most haunting music videos ever made. The children playing cheerfully while providing a living metaphor for the horrors of war. Just brilliant

Robert Wilk

@Derek Rall having to put kids playing war in a music video to make grown ups and governments understand killing is bad.

Derek Rall

@Robert Wilk I'm also an American who understands the message of serj and s.o.a.d and they have sold millions of albums that being said many people are listening and I don't know what you mean by maybe he wouldn't need to go to these lengths. What lengths has he gone to?

Robert Wilk

But also, s.o.a.d. is off their hiatus now so let’s see what’s next.

Robert Wilk

@Derek Rall as an American who knows serj’s Armenian message, he’s literally trying every angle since s.o.a.d. Maybe if we were listening he wouldn’t have to go to these lengths to prove a point…

I stand with Ukraine

@ogkushuknow for sure.. you didn’t understand the message of this song.

pyronixe

@Gotrek Gurnisson There are much more austere consequences if one of the worlds top 40 economies decides to invade another major economy. Much different that the smaller conflicts we have saw the past 20 years.
