The sound is on the visions move
The image dance starts once again
They shuffle with a bovine grace
And glide in syncopation

Just living lines from books we've read
With atmospheres of days gone by
With paper smiles the screenplay calls
A message for the nation

And those who sneer will fade and die
And those who laugh will surely fall
And those who know will always feel
Their backs against the thin wall
The thin wall, thin wall

Old men who speak of victory
Shed light upon their stolen life
They drive by night and act as if they're
Moved by unheard music

To step in time and play the part
With velvet voices smooth and cold
Their power games a game no more
And long the chance to use it

And those who sneer will fade and die
And those who laugh will surely fall
And those who know will always feel
Their backs against the thin wall
The thin wall, thin wall

And those who dance will spin and turn
And those who wait will wait no more
And those talk will hear the word

And those who sneer will fade and die
And those who laugh will surely fall
And those who know will always feel
Their backs against the thin wall
Thin wall

And those who dance
The thin wall
And those who wait
The thin wall
And those who talk
The thin wall

And those who sneer
The thin wall
And those who laugh
The thin wall
And those who know
The thin wall

And those who dance
The thin wall
And those who wait
