walls of confinement lyrics – napalm death

lyrics: lee dorrian / music: mick harris

before my eyes i see a wall,
12 000 miles high,
and the same amount wide.

within that wall are faces of people
to whom i once could relate.

now communicating seems hard,
when there’s an ego barrier to break through.

opinions of self opinion cloud a new horizon.
the vision a mere illusion.

biased in conclusion, trapped in seclusion,
to the outside – exclusion.

when an att*tude is so biased,
what can you expect to change?

banging your head,
but the wall’s not moving,
it’s enclosing.

burning so much energy.
enthusiasm burning.
is change the ´ real ª obsession?

or with a sense of pretention,
do you merely strive for credible attention?
