  • Listen
    If you listen
    You will hear an endless heartbeat
    On the inside
    Through the walls
    The sound is crawling
    Down the corridors and halls
    It cracks the ceiling
    The windows and the doors
    All the rest won't listen
    Though the walls have ears
    But they never really look
    They just stand and stare
    They're all standing
    Staring at the walls

    Who put the writing on the walls?
    Will no-one ever know?
    Oh, well I don't mind the walls

    Tell me
    Why don't you tell me?
    Have you got nothing to say?
    Tell me where in hell this place is
    Tell me why I get no answers
    Am I talking, taking to the walls?
    So it's running, jumping, standing still
    Well I think I've had enough of it all
    Get your hands up
    Up against the wall
    (Well, I'm never going back to the factory
    No I'll never be a part of the machinery)

    Who put the writing on the wall?
    Who fights and runs away?
    The minutes and the hours pass him
    Tracing out the days
    The days and nights drag into years
    And no-one ever knows
    Oh, well I don't mind the walls
    Oh, well I don't mind the walls
    I don't mind the walls
