Careful not to end or fight no one Still battling on when all your enemies are gone Making you look dumb and stupid The empty ring
What would it matter to you If the pleasure always planned Was right there in your hand But no one there to see that The empty ring
The taste of fear and fortune, The smell of toil and sweat, But if the crowd ain't there to see it It's just another memory It's just another memory In an empty ring, empty ring
Words of wisdom fail you The time it takes to fall The crowd ain't there to see it It's just another memory Just another memory In an empty ring, empty ring
With a world to listen to ya Still rattling on when All the war is won You just don't know when to give up You win, your the empty ring, empty ring

"Come Dancing" by The Kinks was inspired by the older sister of Ray Davies, who would make guys take her out dancing and spend their money on her, only to send them home frustrated with just a peck on the cheek.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
