We don't need more medications
We don't need another colonoscopy
No more fingers up my A hole please
Doctors leave my ass alone
Hey, doctors, leave my ass alone!
All in all it's just another quack in the wall
All in all you're just another quack in the wall

I don't need no suppositories
I don't need no enemes
No more CT Scans and MRIs
Teachers leave my bod alone
Hey, Teacher! Leave my bod alone!
All in all you're just another quack in the wall

We don't need no Medimucil
No dark sarcasm in the bathroom
Doctors leave them guts alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them guts alone
All in all it's just another quack in the wall
All in all you're just another quack in the wall

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave those kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave those kids alone
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

I don't need no arms around me
I don't need no drugs to calm me
I have seen the writing on the wall
Don't think I need anything at all
No, Don't think I need anything at all
All in all it was just bricks in the wall

    General CommentNewRockSucks,KoRnholio8: I agree and disagree, yes it dose not do Floyd justice, but it still sounds great. and yes, they should return to wut they do best, fallow the leader and Issues and most deffently Life is Peachy. give KoRn credit for their greasted songs like falling away from me and twist.

    General CommentTriXta, lets see here, ur a dumbass, a serious dumbass. o and your a dumbass. its a cover song by Pink Flyod. The Wall was one of the best songs written in the history of Rock. It was writen in a dark time that tried to control the thoughts of kids. It was a time of war and the wall that built the wall splitting East and West Germany. this is a symblolic song that repesents the War of the 60's and the 70's.

    General Commenti think that the cover was decent but i think that Korn should stick to makin their own kind of music and need to not do anymore covers of any Floyd songs ever again

    General CommentCan you guys stop arguing? Of course a cover of one of the greatest song in rock history is not going to be as good as the original! But Korn did a pretty damn good cover of this song considering that no other bands had to balls to do it. Plus, Jon's voice in this song sounds awesome.

    General Commentkorn fucker, not only is it not about "the war" of the 60's and 70's, it is also not about the berlin wall. i would recommend listening to the entire album of 'the wall' and learning about real art.
    the wall is a personal wall built with each brick symbolizing another fear or another thing from which he wants to hide himself.

    the first part is about the emptiness he feels because he never got to know his father. his father was in the british military and was killed at anzio (a battle in italy in ww2). he's expressing his grief and anger because he feels his father gave him nothing from which to build a good life. each one of these regrets is another brick in his personal wall that he's building around himself to protect him from society and responsibility.

    the second part shows how he's pulled away from society's teachings and developed his own sense of necessity. he feels that he doesn't need, and certainly doesn't want, anyone telling him how to think. and each time he pulls away further, it adds bricks in the wall.

    the third part is located a bit further in his story. he's grown up a bit and has built his wall all around him. he's made up his mind from all the things he's seen and done and is ready to fully retreat behind his personal wall.

    each song on 'the wall' tells a story, and each one goes from the one before it and leads into the one after it. none of these songs were meant to be singles, and this one in particular only sounds the way it does because the recording company wanted to pace it up a bit with a rather upbeat chorus beat. 'the wall' represents a musical concept that is all but lost on today's popular musicians in that each song on the album means very little by itself, but together serves the meaning of the entire album.

    as for korn's version, i'd say it's about par for the course as far as what i'd expect korn to do to a classic. jon's voioce does go very well with this song as he can't sing any better than roger waters. it's not about being able to sing, it's about being able to express yourself through your voice, and jon does do well in that regard. everything else gets a thumbs down though. obviously, i'm a pink floyd purist and don't believe any of their songs should be remade. by the way, head might be a decent guitarist for korn, but he couldn't hold a candle to david gilmour.

    General CommentI don't get why people absolutely hate alot of covers bands do. They compare the songs to the original, and that's one thing YOU SHOULD NOT do.

    It's like when an artist (Ex: Cartoonist) draws, say, another popular character from a different cartoon into his. He/She makes it to where it IS recognizable, where the people can tell who or what it is, then the rest is the artist's 'style' injected into it. Same with covers in music.

    I know that there are some covers that don't fit my tastes, but I'm not going to just say that they 'suck', or compare them to the original. I listen to them for what they are: the artist expressing their like for a song and putting their own spin on it.

    Oh, and I do like this cover. It's pretty good.

    General CommentIt is quite obvious that some of you have ... rather ... imaginative minds which would be absolutely perfect for rewriting history books and filling them with absolutely unreliable but hilareous information. Whoever said that this had something to do with Jon having his penis stuck in cement, where the hell do you get this shit from? You are so completely twisted and confused about song meanings, but they are good for a laugh. Anyway, I like Pink Floyd's original because it sounds so totally sweet and the part at the end with the "You can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat" is so fucking funny and random. I like this version equally because I love Jon's hot voice and the wicked awesome guitar. Also, doing covers isn't about doing it exactly the same as the person who first played it. It's about taking a song and giving it your own awesome touch. Oh and one more thing, on the CD it sounds to me as if someone yells something in the background during the guitar solo. Does anybody else know what I'm talking about and if so, know what is being said? Gotta help me out here! It's drivin' me fuckin' crazy!
