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,
Raise rats,
Fill the attic with cash,
Bury treasure,
Store up leisure,
But never relax at all
With our backs to the Wall?

    It's amazing how Roger Waters has mined and mined the vein of self-pity for the poor hard rocker who somehow can't keep from shooting junk into his veins and snorting Andean marching powder while on tour. Yaaawwwn.
