The Wall

When the Tigers Broke Free (Waters)

--------------------------



C Gsus C

It was just before dawn one miserable morning in black forty-four



C

When the foreward commander was told to sit tight,



F/C C

When they asked that his men be withdrawn



C

And the generals gave thanks, as the other ranks



Gsus C

Held back the enemy tanks for a while



C Gsus

And the Anzio Bridgehead was held for the price



C

Of a few hundred ordinary lives







C G C G

And kind old King George sent Mother a note when he heard that Father was gone



C G C

It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll with gold leaf and all



C

And I found it one day in a drawer of old photographs hidden away



C Gsus

And my eyes still grow damp to remember



C

His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp



C G C

It was dark all around, there was frost on the ground



G

When the Tigers broke free



C

And no-one survived from the Royal Fusiliers, Company "C"



G C G C

They were all left behind, most of them dead - the rest of them dying



C G C

And that's how the high command took my daddy from me

What Shall We Do Now ? (Waters)

----------------------



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 to drink

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 out backs to the wall







Young Lust (Waters, Gilmour)

Nothing is very much fun anymore.

Tight as a tourniquet

Dry as a funeral drum

One of my bad days

And the worms ate into his brain.

Hey you! out there on the road

Doing what you're told, can you help me
