Empty walls – Serj Tankian

Ecco un altro video che vogliamo segnalarvi sia perchè la canzone ci piace tantissimo (Serj Tankian è il cantante dei System of A Down che dopo il loro scioglimento ha iniziato questo progetto solista) sia perchè è un video originale, divertente, e colorato ma con un messaggio fortissimo.  Dei bambini in un asilo (o in un baby parking) giocano alla guerra e tra palline colorate,  fucili e carri armati di cartone inscenano tutta la violenza della guerra in Iraq e delle torture a Guantanamo. Davvero toccante. 

Your empty walls…
Your empty walls…
Pretentious attention
Dismissive aprehension
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
Don’t
You 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
Don’t
You see
From behind those empty walls
Want you to be
Left behind those empty walls
Don’t
You 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, yes
Though they be
For you killed my family

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
Told you
To see
From behind those empty walls
From behind those empty walls
From behind those fucked up walls
From behind those God damn walls
Those walls…
Those walls…
