Empty Spaces

written by Roger Waters (©1979 Pink Floyd Music Publishers Ltd.)
(Album version)
What shall we use to fill the empty
Spaces where we used to talk?
How shall I fill the final places?
How shall I complete the wall?
What Shall We Do Now? (From the film & the live show)
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 drinks, 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 our backs to the wall
