"The Pizza Song" as written by and Peter Manning Robinson....
On a dark street on a cold night pizza's cooking in a storefront oven
On the corner a boy is waiting the moonlight feels cold and
Desperate some hidden sadness has bound down
Attention is all over town ready to burst open into driving burning exploding sound

If these walls could sing they would sing us a hundred songs
If these walls could talk they would say they would have seen it coming all along, all along
Tony's making slice pies for the lunch rush stirring the sauce pounding out
The dough his brother left town with his girl she ain't his girl no more

And some days they never seem to end so mundane in this old town
In his home town ready to burst open into driving burning exploding sound.
And If these walls could sing they would sing us a hundred songs
If these walls could talk they would say

They would have seen it coming all along, all along, all along
May all these walls be made in all our wasted years and days
Not stand in our way that we may feel the winds of change (change, turn it up)
(Change, turn it up)

(Change, turn it up)
And If these walls could sing they would sing us a hundred songs
If these walls could talk they would say
They would have seen it coming, coming, coming all along, all along

They would have seen it coming, coming, coming all along, all along
They would have seen it coming, coming, coming all along, all along
They would have seen it coming, coming, coming all along, all along
They would have seen it coming, coming, coming all along, all along

    General Commentdamn I was hoping someone would have an answer for what the walls had seen coming all along

    but i think the song is about getting wrapped up in a routine in life and never really getting out and doing what you want to.

    "Tony's making slice pies for the lunch rush
    Stirring the sauce, pounding out the dough
    His brother left town with his girl
    She ain't his girl no more"

    Tony's brother and girl left because they wanted to get away and he was left behind because he was too afraid to break out and go somewhere, that's how I interpret it anyways.

    So yeah I think it's about that and maybe looking back and seeing how the years have passed you by. So maybe what the walls saw coming is that you would realize that you made the mistake of never getting out and doing what you wanted with your life. And they saw it coming because they've seen it happen to many people who worked in the store before.

    Anyways such a beautiful song, when I first saw the title I thought it was gonna be a fun song about pizza and then I listened to it and I was like woah, this is deep.
