  • 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 Writer/s: PAUL WELLER, SIMON DINE
