Lyrics 
Your empty walls,
Your empty walls,
Pretentious adventures,
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,
Told 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,
Told you to see from behind those empty walls,
Want you to be left behind those empty walls,
I told 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,
(From behind those empty walls...)
Before you killed my family,
(From behind those empty walls, the walls...)

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,
(I want you...)
Dying of anticipation,
Choking from intoxication,
(To be left behind those empty...)
I want you to be left behind those empty walls,
Told you to see from behind those empty walls,
(Desolate and full of yearning, Dying of anticipation, 
Choking from intoxication...)
Want you to be left behind those empty walls,
(Don't you see their bodies burning? 
Desolate and full of yearning, Dying of anticipation, Choking from intoxication...)
I told you to see from behind those empty walls,

(Trust your empty walls, trust your empty walls)
From behind those empty walls,
(Trust your empty walls, trust your empty walls)
From behind those empty walls,
(Trust your empty walls, trust your empty walls)
From behind those empty walls,
Those walls!
Those walls!

  1. Never was a fan tbh. I love System, but this felt like it tried too hard.

  4. System of a down did not break up. They are simply on hiatus. They are actually touring together right now. I unfortunately found tankian's solo work not nearly as good as SOAD. its probably because tankian doesn't write the lyrics or music for SOAD. This was the only good song on this album, such a disappointment. This song does rock my socks though. You should listen to the acoustic version.
