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, before
You killed my family.

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
Taunt you
To see
From behind those empty walls
From behind those empty walls
From behind those ****ing walls
From behind those goddamn walls
Those walls
Those walls

Gratefully Disappeared

length: 1:42
composer: Serj Tankian
lyricist: Serj Tankian

Have you disappeared
With all of life shining upon you?
Into the brightness of today

You encircle me room to room
Partaking of your grace

My heart is in trepidation
For a have a bit of fear
Though I am filled with love for your presence

You tease me like a virgin maiden
Galloping around
Showing me your autonomous capabilities

I love you
For you are my teacher
You have taught me much
In the small presence of a millisecond
Much more than a world of physical knowledge
More than a world of physical knowledge

I had the opportunity to lightly caress you
And for that I am a billion times grateful
For that, for that, for that
I am a billion times grateful...
