Pink Floyd - Another brick in the wall

I don't need no arms around me 
And I dont 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'll need anything at all. 
All in all it was all just bricks in the wall. 
All in all you were all just bricks in the wall. 

Pink Floyd - Another brick in the wall - part 1

Daddy’s flown across the ocean 
Leaving just a memory 
A Snapshot in the family album 
Daddy what else did you leave for me 
Daddy what d’ya leave behind for me 

All in all it was just a brick in the wall 
All in all it was just a brick in the wall 

Pink Floyd - Apples and oranges

Got a flip-top pack of cigarettes in her pocket 
Feeling good at the top 
Shopping in sharp shoes 
Walking in the sunshine town feeling very cool 
But the butchers and the bakers in the supermarket stores 
Getting everything she wants from the supermarket stores 
Apples and oranges 
Apples and oranges 

Cornering neatly she trips up sweetly 
To meet the people 
She's on time again 
And then 
I catch her by the eye then I stop and have to think 
What a funny thing to do 'cause I'm feeling very pink 
Apples and oranges 
Apples and oranges 

I love she 
She loves me 
See you 
See you 

Thought you might to know 
I'm the lorry driver man 
She's on the run 
Down by the river side 
feeding ducks by the afternoon tide 
(quack quack) 
Apples and oranges 
Apples and oranges 
Apples and oranges 

Pink Floyd - Arnold Layne

Arnold Layne had a strange hobby 
Collecting clothes 
Moonshine washing line 
They suit him fine 
On the wall hung a tall mirror 
Distorted view, see through baby blue 
Oh, Arnold Layne 
It's not the same, takes two to know 
Two to know, two to know 
Why can't you see? 
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne 

Now he's caught - a nasty sort of person. 
They gave him time 
Doors bang - chain gang - he hates it 
Oh, Arnold Layne 
It's not the same, takes two to know 
Two to know, two to know 
Why can't you see? 
Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne, Arnold Layne 

Don't do it again 

Pink Floyd - Astronomy domine

Lime and limpid green, a second scene 
A fight between the blue you once knew. 
Floating down, the sound resounds 
Around the icy waters underground. 
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania. 
Neptune, Titan. 
Stars can frighten. 

Lime and limpid green, a second scene 
A fight between the blue you once knew. 
Floating down, the sound resounds 
Around the icy waters underground. 
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania. 
Neptune, Titan. 
Stars can frighten. 

Blinding signs flap, 
Flicker, flicker, flicker blam. Pow, pow. 
Stairway scare Dan. Dare who's there? 
Lime and limpid green, the sounds around 
The icy waters under 
Lime and limpid green, the sounds around 
The icy waters underground.

Pink Floyd - Biding my time

Wasting my time, 
Resting my mind 
And I'll never pine 
For the sad days and the bad days 
When we was workin' from nine to five. 
And if you don't mind 
I'll spend my time 
Here by the fire side 
In the warm light of her eyes. 
And if you don't mind 
I'll spend my time 
Here by the fire side 
In the warm light and the love in her eyes. 

Pink Floyd - Bike

I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like. 
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and 
Things to make it look good. 
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it. 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world. 
I'll give you anything, ev'rything if you want things. 

I've got a cloak. It's a bit of a joke. 
There's a tear up the front. It's red and black. 
I've had it for months. 
If you think it could look good, then I guess it should. 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world. 
I'll give you anything, ev'rything if you want things. 

I know a mouse, and he hasn't got a house. 
I don't know why. I call him Gerald. 
He's getting rather old, but he's a good mouse. 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world. 
I'll give you anything, ev'rything if you want things. 

I've got a clan of gingerbread men. 
Here a man, there a man, lots of gingerbread men. 
Take a couple if you wish. They're on the dish. 

You're the kind of girl that fits in with my world. 

I'll give you anything, ev'rything if you want things. 

I know a room of musical tunes. 

Some rhyme, some ching. Most of them are clockwork. 
Let's go into the other room and make them work. 

Pink Floyd - Brain damage

The lunatic is on the grass 
The lunatic is on the grass 
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs 
Got to keep the loonies on the path 

The lunatic is in the hall 
The lunatics are in my hall 
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor 
And every day the paper boy brings more 

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon 
And if there is no room upon the hill 
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too 
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon 

The lunatic is in my head 
The lunatic is in my head 
You raise the blade, you make the change 
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane 

You lock the door 
And throw away the key 
There's someone in my head but it's not me. 

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear 
You shout and no one seems to hear 
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes 
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon 

Pink Floyd - Breathe

Breathe, breathe in the air 
Don't be afraid to care 
Leave but don't leave me 
Look around and chose your own ground 
For long you live and high you fly 
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry 
And all you touch and all you see 
Is all your life will ever be 

Run, run rabbit run 
Dig that hole, forget the sun, 
And when at last the work is done 
Don't sit down it's time to start another one 
For long you live and high you fly 
But only if you ride the tide 
And balanced on the biggest wave 
You race toward an early grave. 

Pink Floyd - Bring the boys back home

Bring the boys back home. 
Bring the boys back home. 
Don't leave the children on their own, no, no. 
Bring the boys back home. 

"Wrong! Do it again!" 
"Time to go! [knock, knock, knock, knock] 
"Are you feeling okay?" 
"There's a man answering, but he keeps hanging up!" 
Is there anybody out there? 

Pink Floyd - Burning bridges

Bridges burning gladly, 
Merging with the shadows, 
Flickering between the lines. 
Stolen moments floating softly on the air, 
Born on wings of fire and climbing higher. 
Ancient bonds are breaking, 
Moving on and changing sides. 
Dreaming of a new day, 
Cast aside the other way. 
Magic visions stirring, 
Kindled by and burning flames rise in her eyes. 
The door stands ajar, 
The wall that once were high. 
Beyond the gilded cage, 
Beyond the reach of ties. 
The moment is at hand. 
She breaks the golden band. 

Pink Floyd - Candy and a currant bun

Oh my, girl sitting in the sun 
Go buy, candy and a currant bun 
I like, to see you run 
Like that...... 

Oooh, don't talk to me 
Please just fuck with me 
Please you know I'm feeling frail 

It's true, sun shining very bright 
It's you, who I'm gonna love tonight 
Ice cream, taste good in the afternoon 
Ice cream, taste good if you eat it soon 

Oooh, don't touch me child 
Please you know you drive me wild 
Please you know I'm feeling frail 

Don't try another cat 
Don't go where other you must know why 
Very very very frail 

Oh my, girl sitting in the sun 
Go buy, candy and a currant bun 
I like, to see you run 
Like that...... 

Pink Floyd - Chapter 24

A movement is accomplished in six stages 
And the seventh brings return. 
The seven is the number of the young light 
It forms when darkness is increased by one. 
Change returns success 
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune. 
Sunset. 

The time is with the month of winter solstice 
When the change is due to come. 
Thunder in the other course of heaven. 
Things cannot be destroyed once and for all. 
Change returns success 
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune. 
Sunset, sunrise. 

A movement is accomplished in six stages 
And the seventh brings return. 
The seven is the number of the young light 
It forms when darkness is increased by one. 
Change returns success 
Going and coming without error. 
Action brings good fortune. 
Sunset, sunrise. 

Pink Floyd - Childhood´s end

You shout in your sleep. 
Perhaps the price is just too steap. 
Is your conscience at rest 
If once put to the test? 

You awake with a stars 
To just the beating of your heart. 
Just one man beneath the skies, 
Just two ears, just two eyes. 

You set sail across the sea 
Of longpast thoughts and memories. 
Childhood's end, 
Your fantasies merge with harsh realities. 

And then as the sail is hoist, 
You find your eyes are growing moist. 
All the fears never voiced 
Say you have to make your final choice. 

Who are you and who am I 
To say we know the reason why 
Some are born; Some men die 
beneath one infinite sky. 

There'll be war, there'll be peace. 
But everything one day will cease. 
All the iron'll turn to rust; 
All the proud men'll turn to dust. 

And so all things, time will mend. 
So this song will end. 

Pink Floyd - Cirrus minor

In a churchyard by a river, 
Lazing in the haze of midday, 
Laughing in the grasses and the graze. 
Yellow bird, you are alone 
In singing and in flying on, 
In laughing and in leaving. 

Willow weeping in the water, 
Waving to the river daughters, 
Swaying in the ripples and the reeds. 
On a trip to Cirrus Minor, 
Saw a crater in the sun 
A thousand miles of moonlight later. 

Pink Floyd - Comfortably numb

Hello. 
Is there anybody in there? 
Just nod if you can hear me. 
Is there anyone home? 

Come on, now. 
I hear you're feeling down. 
Well I can ease your pain, 
Get you on your feet again. 

Relax. 
I need some information first. 
Just the basic facts: 
Can you show me where it hurts? 

There is no pain, you are receding. 
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon. 
You are only coming through in waves. 
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'. 
When I was a child I had a fever. 
My hands felt just like two balloons. 
Now I got that feeling once again. 
I can't explain, you would not understand. 
This is not how I am. 
I have become comfortably numb. 

Ok. 
Just a little pinprick. 
There'll be no more --Aaaaaahhhhh! 
But you may feel a little sick. 

Can you stand up? 
I do believe it's working. Good. 
That'll keep you going for the show. 
Come on it's time to go. 

There is no pain, you are receding. 
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon. 
You are only coming through in waves. 
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're sayin'. 
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse, 
Out of the corner of my eye. 
I turned to look but it was gone. 
I cannot put my finger on it now. 
The child is grown, the dream is gone. 
I have become comfortably numb. 

Pink Floyd - Coming back to life

Where were you 
when I was burned and broken 
While the days slipped by 
from my window watching 
Where were you 
when I was hurt and I was helpless 
Because the things you say 
And the things you do surround me 
While you were hanging yourself 
on someone else's words 
Dying to believe in what you heard 
I was staring straight 
into the shining sun 

Lost in thought and lost in time 
While the seeds of life 
and the seeds of change were planted 
Outside the rain fell dark and slow 
While I pondered on this dangerous 
but irresistible pastime 
I took a heavenly ride through our silence 
I knew the moment had arrived 
For killing the past and coming back to life 

I took a heavenly ride through our silence 
I knew the waiting had begun 
And headed straight...into the shining sun 

Pink Floyd - Corporal Clegg

Corporal Clegg had a wooden leg 
He won it in the war, in 1944. 
Corporal Clegg had a medal too 
In orange, red, and blue 
He found it in the zoo. 
Dear, dear were they really sad for me? 
Dear, dear will they really laugh at me? 
Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him. 
Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin. 
Corporal Clegg umbrella in the rain 
He's never been the same 
No one is to blame 
Corporal Clegg recieved his medal in a dream 

From Her Majesty the queen 
His boots were very clean. 
Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him 
Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin. 

Pink Floyd - Crying song

We smile and smile 
We smile and smile 
Laughter echoes in your eyes 
We climb and climb 
We climb and climb 
Footfalls softly in the pines 
We cry and cry 
We cry and cry 
Sadness passes in a while 
We roll and roll 
We roll and roll 
Help me roll away the stone 

Pink Floyd - Cymbaline

The path you tread is narrow 
And the drop is shear and very high 
The ravens all are watching 
From a vantage point nearby 
Apprehension creeping 
Like a tube-train up your spine 
Will the tightrope reach the end 
Will the final couplet rhyme 

And it's high time 
Cymbaline 
It's high time 
Cymbaline 
Please wake me 

A butterfly with broken wings 
Is falling by your side 
The ravens all are closing in 
And there's nowhere you can hide 
Your manager and agent 
Are both busy on the phone 
Selling coloured photographs 
To magazines back home 

And it's high time 
Cymbaline 
It's high time 
Cymbaline 
Please wake me 

The lines converging where you stand 
They must have moved the picture plane 
The leaves are heavy around your feet 
You hear the thunder of the train 
And suddenly it strikes you 
That they're moving into range 
Doctor Strange is always changing size 

And it's high time 
Cymbaline 
It's high time 
Cymbaline 
Please wake me 

And it's high time 
Cymbaline 
It's high time 
Cymbaline 
Please wake me 

Pink Floyd - Dogs

You gotta be crazy, 
You gotta have a real need 
You gotta sleep on your toes, 
When you're on the street 
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat 
With your eyes closed 
And then moving in silently, 
Down wind and out of sight 
You gotta strike when the moment is right 
Without thinking. 

And after a while, 
You can work on points for style 
Like the club tie, 
And the firm handshake 
A certain look in the eye, 
And an easy smile 
You have to be trusted 
By the people that you lie to 
So that when they turn their backs on you 
You'll get the chance to put the knife in. 

You gotta keep one eye 
Looking over your shoulder 
You know it's going to get harder, 
And harder, and harder 
As you get older 
And in the end you'll pack up, 
Fly down south, 
Hide your head in the sand 
Just another sad old man 
All alone, dying of cancer. 

And when you lose control, 
You'll reap the harvest 
You have sown. 
And as the fear grows, 
The bad blood slows and turns to stone 
And it's too late to lose 
The weight you used to need to throw around 
So have a good drown, 
As you go down, all alone, 
Dragged down by the stone. 

I gotta admit 
That I'm a little bit confused 
Sometimes it seems to me 
As if I'm just being used. 
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off 
This creeping malaise 
If I don't stand my own ground, 
How can I find my way out of this maze? 

Deaf, dumb, and blind, 
You just keep on pretending 
That everyone's expendable, 
And no one has a real friend. 
It seems to you the thing to do 
Would be to isolate the winner 
Everything's done under the sun 
And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer. 

Who was born in a house full of pain 
Who was trained not to spit in the fan 
Who was told what to do by the man 
Who was broken by trained personnel 
Who was fitted with collar and chain 
Who was given a pat on the back 
Who was breaking away from the pack 
Who was only a stranger at home 
Who was ground down in the end 
Who was found dead on the phone 
Who was dragged down by the stone. 

Pink Floyd - Dont leave me now

Ooooh Babe 
Don't leave me now 
Don't say it's the end of the road 
Remember the flowers I sent 
I need you Babe 
To put through the shredder 
In front of my friends 
Ooooh Babe 
Don’t leave me now 
How could you go ? 
When you know how I need you, 
To beat to a pulp on a Saturday night 
Ooooh Babe 
Don’t leave me now 
How can you treat me this way 
Running away 
I need you babe 
Why are you running away ? 
Ooooooh Babe ! 

Pink Floyd - Echoes

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air 
And deep beneath the rolling waves 
In labyrinths of coral caves 
The echo of a distant time 
Comes willowing across the sand 
And erverything is green and submarine 

And no-one showed us to the land 
And no-one knows the where or whys 
But something stirs and something tries 
And starts to climb towards the light 

Strangers passing in the streets 
by chance two separate glances meet 
And i am you and what I see is me 
And do I take you by the hand 
And lead you thorough the land 
And help me understand the best I can 

And no-one calls us to move on 
And no-one forces down our eyes 
And no-one speaks and no-one tries 
And no-one flies around the sun 

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes 
Inviting and inciting me to rise 
And through the window in the wall 
Come streaming in on sunlight wings 
A million bright ambassadors of morning 

And no-one sings me lullabies 
And no-one makes me close my eys 
And so I throw the windows wide 
And call to you across the sky 

Pink Floyd - Eclipse

All that you touch 
All that you see 
All that you taste 
All you feel. 
All that you love 
All that you hate 
All you distrust 
All you save. 
All that you give 
All that you deal 
All that you buy, 
Beg, borrow or steal. 
All you create 
All you destroy 
All that you do 
All that you say. 
All that you eat 
And everyone you meet 
All that you slight 
And everyone you fight. 
All that is now 
All that is gone 
All that's to come 
And everything under the sun is in tune 
But the sun is eclipsed by the moon. 

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark." 

 Pink Floyd - Embryo

All is love, is all I am 
a ball is all I am 
I'm so new compared to you 
and I am very small 

Warm glow, moon bloom 
always need a little more room 
waiting here seems like years 
never seen the light of day 

All around I hear strange sounds 
come gurgling in my ear 
red the light and dark the night 
I feel my dawn is near 

Warm glow, moon bloom 
always need a little more room 
whisper low, here I go 
I will see the sunshine show 

Pink Floyd - Empty spaces

What shall we use to fill the empty 
Spaces where we used to talk 
How shall I fill the final places 
How shall I complete the wall 

Pink Floyd - Fat old sun

When that fat old sun in the sky is falling 
Summer evening birds are calling 
Summer sunday and a year 
The sound of music in my ears 
Distant bells, new mown grass smells so sweet 
By the river holding hands 
Roll me up and lay me down 

And if you see, don't make a sound 
Pick your feet up off the ground 
And if you hear as the warm night falls 
A silver sound from a tongue so strange 
Sing to me, sing to me... 

When that fat old sun in the sky is falling 
Summer evening birds are calling 
Children's laughter in my ears 
The last sunlight disappears 

And if you see, don't make a sound 
Pick your feet up off the ground 
And if you hear as the warm night falls 
A silver sound from a tongue so strange 
Sing to me, sing to me... 

Pink Floyd - Fearless

You say the hill's too steep to climb, climbing 
You say you'd like to see me try, climbing 
You pick the place an I'll choose the time 
And I'll climb the hill in m yown way 
Just wait a while for the right day 
And as I rise above the tree-line and the clouds 
I look down hearing the sound 
Of the things you've said today 

Fearlessly the idiot faces the crowd, smiling 
Merciless the magistrate turns round, frowning 
And who's the fool who wears the crown 
No doubt in your own way 
And every day is the right day 
And as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow 
You look down hear the sound of the faces in the crowd 

Pink Floyd - Final cut

Through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes 
I can barely define the shape of this moment in time 
And far from flying high in clear blue skies 
I'm spiraling down to the hole in the ground where I hide. 

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive 
And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes 
And if you make it past the shotgun in the hall, 
Dial the combination, open the priesthole 
And if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall. 

There's a kid who had a big hallucination 
Making love to girls in magazines. 
He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith. 
Could anybody love him 
Or is it just a crazy dream? 

And if I show you my dark side 
Will you still hold me tonight? 
And if I open my heart to you 
And show you my weak side 
What would you do? 
Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone? 
Would you take the children away 
And leave me alone? 
And smile in reassurance 
As you whisper down the phone? 
Would you send me packing? 
Or would you take me home? 

Thought I oughta bare my naked feelings, 
Thought I oughta tear the curtain down. 
I held the blade in trembling hands 
Prepared to make it but just then the phone rang 
I never had the nerve to make the final cut. 

"Hello? Listen, I think I've got it. Okay, listen its a HaHa!" 

Pink Floyd - Flaming

Alone in the clouds all blue 
Lying on an eiderdown. 
Yippee! You can't see me 
But I can you. 

Lazing in the foggy dew 
Sitting on a unicorn. 
No fair, you can't hear me 
But I can you. 

Watching buttercups cup the light 
Sleeping on a dandelion. 
Too much, I won't touch you 
But then I might. 

Screaming through the starlit sky 
Travelling by telephone. 
Hey ho, here we go 
Ever so high. 

Alone in the clouds all blue 
Lying on an eiderdown. 
Yippee! You can't see me 
But I can you. 

Pink Floyd - Free four

The memories of a man in his old age 
Are the deeds of a man in his prime. 
You shuffle in gloom of the sickroom 
And talk to yourself as you die. 

Life is a short, warm moment 
And death is a long cold rest. 
You get your chance to try in the twinkling of an eye: 
Eighty years, with luck, or even less. 

So all aboard for the American tour, 
And maybe you'll make it to the top. 
And mind how you go, and I can tell you, 'cause I know 
You may find it hard to get off. 

You are the angel of death 
And I am the dead man's son. 
And he was buried like a mole in a fox hole. 
And everyone is still in the run. 

And who is the master of fox hounds? 
And who says the hunt has begun? 
And who calls the tune in the courtroom? 
And who beats the funeral drum? 

The memories of a man in his old age 
Are the deeds of a man in his prime. 
You shuffle in gloom in the sickroom 
And talk to yourself till you die. 

Pink Floyd - Get your filthy hands off my desert

Brezhnev took Afghanistan 
Begin took Beirut 
Galtieri took the union jack 
And maggie over lunch one day 
Took a cruiser with all hands 
Apparently to make him give it back 

Pink Floyd - Goodbye blue sky

"Look mummy, there's an aeroplane up in the sky" 
Did you see the frightened ones? 
Did you hear the falling bombs? 
Did you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter when the 
promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath a clear blue 
sky? 

Did you see the frightened ones? 
Did you hear the falling bombs? 
The flames are all gone, but the pain lingers on. 

Goodbye, blue sky 
Goodbye, blue sky. 
Goodbye. 
Goodbye. 
Goodbye. 

"The 11:15 from Newcastle is now approaching" 
"The 11:18 arrival...." 

Pink Floyd - Goodbye cruel world

Goodbye Cruel World 

Goodbye cruel world, 
I'm leaving you today. 
Goodbye, 
Goodbye, 
Goodbye. 

Goodbye, all you people, 
There's nothing you can say 
To make me change my mind. 
Goodbye. 

Pink Floyd - Grantchester meadows

"Icy wind of night be gone this is not your domain" 
In the sky a bird was heard to cry. 
Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds 
Belie the deathly silence that lay all around. 

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox 
Gone to ground. 
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water. 
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees 
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer 
Making for the sea. 

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down. 
All around me golden sun flakes settle on the ground. 
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon 
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room. 

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox 
Gone to ground. 
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water. 
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees. 

In the lazy water meadow I lay me down. 
All around me golden sun flakes covering the ground. 
Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon 
Bringing sounds of yesterday into this city room. 

Hear the lark harken to the barking of the dark fox 
Gone to ground. 
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water. 
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees. 

Pink Floyd - Great day for freedom

On the day the wall came down 
They threw the locks onto the ground 
And with glasses high we raised a cry for freedom had arrived 

On the day the wall cane down 
The Ship of Fools had finally run aground 
Promises lit up the night like paper doves in flight 

I dreamed you had left my side 
No warmth, not even pride remained 
And even though you needed me 
It was clear that I could not do a thing for you 

Now life devalues day by day 
As friends and neighbours turn away 
And there's a change that, even with regret, cannot be undone 

Now frontiers shift like desert sands 
While nations wash their bloodied hands 
Of loyalty, of history, in shades of gray 

I woke to the sound of drums 
The music played, the morning sun streamed in 
I turned and I looked at you 
And all but the bitted residue slipped away...slipped away 

Pink Floyd - Great gig in the sky

"And I am not frightened of dying, any time will do, I 
don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? 
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime." 

"If you can hear this whispering you are dying." 

"I never said I was frightened of dying." 

Pink Floyd - Green is the colour

Heavy hung the canopy of blue 
Shade my eyes and I can see you 
White is the light that shines trough the dress that you wore 

She lay in the shadow of a wave 
Hazy were the visions overplayed 
sunlight in her eyes, but moonshine made her cry every time 

Green is the colour of her kind 
quickness of the eye deceives the mind 
envy is the bond between the hopeful and the damned 

Pink Floyd - Happiest days of our lives

When we grew up and went to school 
There were certain teachers who would 
Hurt the children anyway they could 
By pouring they derision 
Upon anything we did 
And exposing every weakness 
However carefully hidden by the kids 
But in the town it was well known 
When they got home at night their fat and 
Psychopathic wives would thrash them 
Within inches of their lives 

Pink Floyd - Have a cigar

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar 
You're gonna go far, 
You're gonna fly high 
You're never gonna die, 
You're gonna make it if you try; 
They're gonna love you 

Well I've always had a deep respect 
And I mean that most sincerely 
The band ist just fantastic, 
That is really what I think 
Oh by the way, which one's Pink? 

And did we tell you the name of the game, boy, 
we call it riding the Gravy Train 

We're just knocked out, 
We heard about the sell out 
You owe it to the people. 
We're so happy we can hardly count 
Everybody else is just green, 
Have you seen the chart 
It's a hell of a start, 
It could be made into a monster 
If we all pull together as a team 

And did we tell you the name of the game, boy, 
We call it riding the Gravy Train 

Pink Floyd - Hey you

Hey you, out there in the cold 
Getting lonely, getting old 
Can you feel me? 
Hey you, standing in the aisles 
With itchy feet and fading smiles 
Can you feel me? 
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light 
Don't give in without a fight. 

Hey you, out there on your own 
Sitting naked by the phone 
Would you touch me? 
Hey you, with you ear against the wall 
Waiting for someone to call out 
Would you touch me? 
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone? 
Open your heart, I'm coming home. 

But it was only fantasy. 
The wall was too high, 
As you can see. 
No matter how he tried, 
He could not break free. 
And the worms ate into his brain. 

Hey you, standing in the road 
always doing what you're told, 
Can you help me? 
Hey you, out there beyond the wall, 
Breaking bottles in the hall, 
Can you help me? 
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all 
Together we stand, divided we fall 

Pink Floyd - High hopes

Beyond 
the horizon of the place we lived when we were young 
In a world of magnets and miracles 
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary 
The ringing of the division bell had begun 

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway 
Do they still meet there by the Cut 

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps 
Running before time took our dreams away 
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground 
To a life consumed by slow decay 

The grass was greener 
The light was brighter 
With friends surrounded 
The nights of wonder 

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us 
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side 
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again 
Dragged by the force of some inner tide 

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled 
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world 

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition 
There's a hunger still unsatisfied 
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon 
Though down this road we've been so many times 

The grass was greener 
The light was brighter 
The taste was sweeter 
The nights of wonder 
With friends surrounded 
The dawn mist glowing 
The water flowing 
The endless river 

Forever and ever 

Pink Floyd - Ibiza Bar

I'm so afraid of mistakes that I made 
Taking every Time that I wake 
I feel like a hard-boiled butter man 
So give me a Time when the countries will lie on the storyline if kind 

Are days are made since the first page 
I've lived every line that you wrote 
Take me down, take me down, from the shelf above your head 
So give me a Time when the countries will lie on the storyline if kind 

And if I live on the shelf like the rest 
And if love bleeds like a sad song 
Please pick-up your camera and use me again 
So give me a Time when the countries will lie on the storyline if kind 

Yea 

Pink Floyd - If

If I were a swan, I'd be gone. 
If I were a train, I'd be late. 
And if I were a good man, 
I'd talk with you 
More often than I do. 

If I were to sleep, I could dream. 
If I were afraid, I could hide. 
If I go insane, please don't put 
Your wires in my brain. 

If I were the moon, I'd be cool. 
If I were a book, I would bend. 
If I were a good man, I'd understand 
The spaces between friends. 

If I were alone, I would cry. 
And if I were with you, I'd be home and dry. 
And if I go insane, 
Will you still let me join in the game? 

If I were a swan, I'd be gone. 
If I were a train, I'd be late again. 
If I were a good man, 
I'd talk with you 
More often than I do. 

Pink Floyd - In the flesh

"....we came in?" 
So ya 
Thought ya 
Might like to go to the show. 
To feel the warm thrill of confusion 
That space cadet glow. 
Tell me is something eluding you, sunshine? 
Is this not what you expected to see? 
If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes 
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise. 


"Lights! Turn on the sound effects! Action!" 
"Drop it, drop it on 'em! Drop it on them!!!!" 

Pink Floyd - Is there anybody out there

Is there anybody out there? 
Is there anybody out there? 
Is there anybody out there? 
Is there anybody out there? 

Pink Floyd - Jugband blues

It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here 
And I'm most obliged to you for making it clear 
That I'm not here 

And I never knew the moon could be so big 
And I never knew the moon could be so blue 
And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes 
And brought me here instead dressed in red 

And I'm wondering who could be writing this song 
Und ich frage mich, wer so ein Lied wohl schreiben mag 
I don't care if the sun don't shine 
And I don't care if nothing is mine 
And I don't care if I'm nervous with you 
I'll do my loving in the Winter 

And the sea isn't green 
And I love the Queen 
And what exactly is a dream? 
And what exactly is a joke? 

Pink Floyd - Julia dream

Sunlight bright upon my pillow 
Lighter than an eiderdown 
Will she let the weeping willow 
Wind his branches round 
Julia dream, dream boat queen, queen of all my dreams 

Every night I turn the light out 
Waiting for the velvet bride 
Will the scaly armadillo 
Find me where I'm hiding 
Julia dream, dream boat queen, queen of all my dreams 

Will the misty master break me 
Will the key unlock my mind 
Will the following footsteps catch me 
Am I really dying 
Julia dream, dream that queen, queen of all my dreams 

Pink Floyd - Keep talking

For millions of years mankind lived just like the animals 
Then something happened which unleashed the power of 
our imagination 
We learned to talk 

There's a silence surrounding me 
I can't seem to think straight 
I'll sit in the corner 
No one can bother me 
I think I should speak now 
I can't seem to speak now 
My words won't come out right 
I feel like I'm drowning 
I'm feeling weak now 
But I can't show my weakness 
I sometimes wonder 
Where do we go from here 

It doesn't have to be like this 
All we need to do is make sure we keep talking 

Why won't u talk to me 
I feel like I'm drowning 
You never talk to me 
You know I can't breathe now 
What are you thinking 
We're going nowhere 
What are you feeling 
We're going nowhere 

It doesn't have to be like this 
All we need to do is make sure we keep talking 

Pink Floyd - Learning to fly

Into the distance, a ribbon of black 
Stretched to the point of no turning back 
A flight of fancy on a windswept field 
Standing alone my senses reeled 
A fatal attraction holding me fast, how 
Can I escape this irresistible grasp? 

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies 
Tongue-tied and twisted Just an earth-bound misfit, I 

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings 
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything 
No navigator to guide my way home 
Unladened, empty and turned to stone 

A soul in tension that's learning to fly 
Condition grounded but determined to try 
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies 
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I 

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer, 
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air, 
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly 
Out of the corner of my watering eye 
A dream unthreatened by the morning light 
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night 

There's no sensation to compare with this 
Suspended animation, A state of bliss 
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies 
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I 

Pink Floyd - Let there be more light

Far, far, far, far away, way 
People heard him say, say 
I will find a way, way 
There will come a day, day 
Something will be done 

Then at last the mighty ship 
descending on a point of flame 
Made contact with the human race 
at Mildenhall 

Now, now, now is the time, time, time 
To be, be, be aware 

Carter's father saw it there 
And knew the Rhull revealed to him 
The living soul of Hereward the Wake 

Oh my, something in my eye, eye 
Something in the sky, sky 
Waiting there for me 

The outer lock rolled slowly back 
The servicemen were heard to sigh 
For there revealed in glowing robes 
was Lucy in the sky 

Oh, oh, did you ever 
No, no, never ever will they 
I'll say 

Summoning his cosmic power 
And glowing slightly from his toes 
His psychic emanations flowed 

Pink Floyd - Lost for words

I was spending my time in the doldrums 
I was caught in a cauldron of hate 
I felt persecuted and paralysed 
I thought that everything else would just wait 

While you are wasting your time on your enemies 
Engulfed in a fever of spite 
Beyond your tunnel vision reality fades 
Like shadows into the night 

To martyr yourself to caution 
Is not going to help at all 
because ther'll be no safety in numbers 
When the right one walks out of the door 

Can you see your days blighted by darkness? 
Is it true you beat your fists on the floor? 
Stuck in a world of isolation 
While the ivy grows over the door 

So I open my door to my enemies 
And I ask could we wipe the slate clean 
But they tell me to please go fuck myself 
You know you just can't win 

Pink Floyd - Lucifer Sam

Lucifer Sam, siam cat. 
Always sitting by your side 
Always by your side. 
That cat's something I can't explain. 

Ginger, ginger you're a witch. 
You're the left side 
He's the right side. 
Oh, no! 
That cat's something I can't explain. 

Lucifer go to sea. 
Be a hip cat, be a ship's cat. 
Somewhere, anywhere. 
That cat's something I can't explain. 

At night prowling sifting sand. 
Hiding around on the ground. 
He'll be found when you're around. 
That cat's something I can't explain. 

Pink Floyd - Matilda mother

There was a king who ruled the land. 
His majesty was in command. 
With silver eyes the scarlet eagle 
Showers silver on the people. 
Oh Mother, tell me More. 

Why'd'ya have to leave me there 
Hanging in my infant air 
Waiting? 
You only have to read the lines 
They're scribbly black and everything shines. 

Across the stream with wooden shoes 
With bells to tell the king the news 
A thousand misty riders climb up 
Higher once upon a Time. 

Wandering and dreaming 
The words have different meaning. 
Yes they did. 

For all the Time spent in that room 
The doll's house, darkness, old perfume 
And fairy sories held me high on 
Clouds of sunlight floating by. 
Oh Mother, tell me More 
Tell me More. 
Aaaaaaaah 
Aaaaaaaah 
Aaaaaaaah 

Pink Floyd - Money

Money, get away 
Get a good job with more pay and your O.K. 
Money it's a gas 
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash 
New car, caviar, four star daydream, 
Think I'll buy me a football team 
Money get back 
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off my stack. 
Money it's a hit 
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit 
I'm in the hi-fidelity first class traveling set 
And I think I need a Lear jet 
Money it's a crime 
Share it fairly but don't take a slice of my pie 
Money so they say 
Is the root of all evil today 
But if you ask for a rise it's no surprise that they're 
giving none away 

"HuHuh! I was in the right!" 
"Yes, absolutely in the right!" 
"I certainly was in the right!" 
"You was definitely in the right. That geezer was cruising for a bruising!" 
"Yeah!" 
"Why does anyone do anything?" 
"I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!" 
"I was just telling him, he couldn't get into number 2. He was asking 
why he wasn't coming up on freely, after I was yelling and 
screaming and telling him why he wasn't coming up on freely. 
It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out" 

Pink Floyd - Mother

Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb? 
Mother do you think they'll like this song? 
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls? 
Mother should I build the wall? 
Mother should I run for president? 
Mother should I trust the government? 
Mother will they put me in the firing line? 
Is it just a waste the time? 

Hush now baby, baby, dont you cry. 
Mother's gonna make all your nightmares come true. 
Mother's gonna put all her fears into you. 
Mother's gonna keep you right here under her wing. 
She wont let you fly, but she might let you sing. 
Mama will keep baby cozy and warm. 
Ooooh baby ooooh baby oooooh baby, 
Of course mama'll help to build the wall. 

Mother do you think she's good enough -- to me? 
Mother do you think she's dangerous -- to me? 
Mother will she tear your little boy apart? 
Mother will she break my heart? 

Hush now baby, baby dont you cry. 
Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you. 
Mama wont let anyone dirty get through. 
Mama's gonna wait up until you get in. 
Mama will always find out where you've been. 
Mama's gonna keep baby healthy and clean. 
Ooooh baby oooh baby oooh baby, 
You'll always be baby to me. 

Mother, did it need to be so high? 

Pink Floyd - Nile song

I was standing by the Nile 
When I saw the lady smile. 
I would take her out for a while, 
For a while. 

Light tears wept like a child. 
How her golden hair was blowing wild. 
Then she spread her wings to fly, 
For to fly. 

Soaring high above the breezes, 
Going always where she pleases. 
She will make it to the island in the sun. 
I will follw in her shadow 
As I watch her from my window. 
One day I will catch her eye. 

She is calling from the deep, 
Summoning my soul to endless sleep. 
She is bound to drag me down, 
Drag me down. 

Pink Floyd - Nobody home

"Alright, I'll take care of them part of the time, but there's somebody else 
that needs taking care of in Washington" 
"Who's that?" 
"Rose Pilchitt!" 
"Rose Pilchitt? Who's that?" 
[Kid screams in background. foreground: "Shut Up!"] 
"36-24-36 does that answer your question?" 
"Oi! I've got a little black book with me poems in!" 
"Who's she?" 
"She was 'Miss Armoured Division' in 1961 ... " 

I've got a little black book with my poems in. 
Got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in. 
When I'm a good dog, they sometimes throw me a bone in. 

I got elastic bands keepin my shoes on. 
Got those swollen hand blues. 
Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from. 
I've got electric light. 
And I've got second sight. 
And amazing powers of observation. 
And that is how I know 
When I try to get through 
On the telephone to you 
There'll be nobody home. 

I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm. 
And the inevitable pinhole burns 
All down the front of my favorite satin shirt. 
I've got nicotine stains on my fingers. 
I've got a silver spoon on a chain. 
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains. 

I've got wild staring eyes. 
And I've got a strong urge to fly. 
But I got nowhere to fly to. 
Ooooh, Babe when I pick up the phone 

"Surprise, surprise, surprise..." 
There's still nobody home. 

I've got a pair of Gohills boots 
and I got fading roots. 

"Where the hell are you?" 
"Over 47 german planes were destroyed with the loss of only 15 of our 
own aircraft" 
"Where the hell are you Simon?" 

Pink Floyd - On the turning away

On the turning away 
From the pale and downtrodden 
And the words they say 
Which we won't understand 
"Don't accept that what's happening 
It's just a case of others suffering 
Or you'll find that you're joining in 
The turning away" 

It's a sin that somehow 
Light is changing to shadow 
And casting it's shroud 
Over all we have known 
Unaware how the ranks have grown 
Driven on by a heart of stone 
We could find that we're all alone 
In the dream of the proud 

On the wings of the night 
As the daytime is stirring 
Where the speechless unite 
In a silent accord 
Using words you will find are strange 
And mesmerised as they light the flame 
Feel the new winds of change 
On the wings of the night 

No more turning away 
From the weak and the weary 
No more turning away 
From the coldness inside 
Just a world that we all must share 
It's not enough just to stand and stare 
Is it only a dream that there'll be 
No more turning away? 

Pink Floyd - One slip

A restless eye across a weary room 
A glazed look and I was on the road to ruin 
The music played and played as we whirled without end 
No hint, no word her honour to defend 

I will, I will she sighed to my request 
And then she tossed her mane while my resolve was put to the test 
Then drowned in desire, our souls on fire 
I lead the way to the funeral pyre 
And without a thought of the consequence 
I gave in to my decadence 

One slip, and down the hole we fall 
It seems to take no time at all 
A momentary lapse of reason 
That binds a life for life 
A small regret, you won't forget, 
There'll be no sleep in here tonight 

Was it love, or was it the idea of being in love? 
Or was it the hand of fate, that seemed to fit just like a glove? 
The moment slipped by and soon the seeds were sown 
The year grew late and neither one wanted to remain alone 

One slip, and down the hole we fall 
It seems to take no time at all 
A momentary lapse of reason 
That binds a life for life 
A small regret, you will never forget, 
There'll be no sleep in here tonight 

Pink Floyd - Outside the wall

All alone, or in two's, 
The ones who really love you 
Walk up and down outside the wall. 
Some hand in hand 
And some gathered together in bands. 
The bleeding hearts and artists 
Make their stand. 

And when they've given you their all 
Some stagger and fall, after all it's not easy 
Banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall. 
"Isn't this where...." 

Pink Floyd - Paintbox

Last night I had too much to drink 
Sitting in a club with so many fools 
Playing to rules 
Trying to impress but feeling rather empty 
I had another drink 
Drink - a - drink - a - drink - a - drink 

What a way to spend that evening 
They all turn up with their friends 
Playing the game 
But in the scene I should have been 
Far away 
Away - away - away - away - away 
Getting up, I feel as if I'm remembering this scene before 
I open the door to an empty room 
Then I forget 

The telephone rings and someone speaks 
She would very much like to go out to a show 
So what can I do - I can't think what to say 
She sees through anyway 
Away - away – away - away - away 

Out of the front door I go 
Traffic's moving rather slow 
Arriving late, there she waits 
Looking very angry, as cross as she can be 
Be - a - be - a - be - a - be - a - be 
Getting up, I feel as if I'm remembering this scene before 
I open the door to an empty room 
Then I forget. 

Pink Floyd - Paranoid eyes

Button your lip. Don't let the shield slip. 
Take a fresh grip on your bullet proof mask. 
And if they try to break down your disguise with their questions 
You can hide, hide, hide, 
"I'll tell you what, I'll give you three blacks, and play you for five 
..." 
"Ta! You was unlucky there son" 
"Time gentleman!" 
Behind paranoid eyes. 

You put on our brave face and slip over the road for a jar. 
Fixing your grin as you casually lean on the bar, 
Laughing too loud at the rest of the world 
With the boys in the crowd 
You hide, hide, hide, 
Behind petrified eyes. 

You believed in their stories of fame, fortune and glory. 
Now you're lost in a haze of alcohol soft middle age 
The pie in the sky turned out to be miles too high. 
And you hide, hide, hide, 
Behind brown and mild eyes. 

Pink Floyd - Pillow of winds

A cloud of eiderdown draws around me 
Softening the sound 
Sleepy time when I lie with my love by my side 
And she's breathing low, and teh canddle dies 

When night comes down you lock the door 
The book falls to the floor 
As darknes falls an waves roll by 
The seasons change the wind is warm 

Now wakes the owl, npw sleeps the swan 
Behold a dream, the dream is gone 
Green fielsd, a cold rain 
Is falling in a golden dawn 

And deep beneath the ground the early morning sounds 
And I go down 
Sleeping time when I lie with my love by my side 
And she's breathing low 
And I rise like a bird 
In the haze when the first rays touch the sky 
And the night winds die 

Pink Floyd - Poles apart

Did you know it was all going to go so wrong for you 
And did you see it was all gong to be so right for me 
Why did we tell you then 
You were always the golden boy then 
And that you'd never lose that light in your eyes 

Hey you did you ever realise what you'd become 
And did you see that it wasn't only me you were running from 
Did you know all the time but I never bothered you anyway 
Leading the blind while I stared out the steel in you eyes 

The rain fell slow, down on all the roofs of uncertainty 
I thought of you and the years and all the sadness fell away from me 
And did you know 
I never thought that you'd lose that light in you eyes 

Pink Floyd - Post war dream

Tell me true tell me why was Jesus crucified 
Is it for this that daddy died? 
Was it for you? was it me? 
Did I watch too much t.v.? 
Is that a hint of accusation in your eyes? 
If it wasn't for the nips 
being so good at building ships 
the yards would still be open on the clyde 
and it can't be much fun for them 
beneath the rising sun 
with all their kids committing suicide 
What have we done maggie what have we done 
What have we done to England 
Should we shout should we scream 
"What happened to the post war dream?" 
Ah Maggie Maggie what have we done? 

Pink Floyd - Remember a day

Remember a day before today 
A day when you were young. 
Free to play alone with time 
Evening never came. 
Sing a song that can't be sung 
Without the morning's kiss 
Queen - you shall be it if you wish 
Look for your king 
Why can't we play today 
Why can't we stay that way 

Climb your favorite apple tree 
Try to catch the sun 
Hide from your little brother's gun 
Dream yourself away 
Why can't we reach the sun 
Why can't we blow the years away 
Blow away 
Blow away 
Remember 
Remember 

Pink Floyd - Run like hell

You better make your face up in 
Your favorite disguise 
With your button down lips and your 
Roller blind eyes 
With your empty smile 
And your hungry heart 
Feel the bite rising from your guilty past 
With your nerves in tatters 
When the cockle shell shatters 
And the hammers butter 
Down the door. 
You better run 

You better run all day 
And run all night 
And keep your dirty feelings 
Deep inside. And if you 
Take your girlfriend 
Out tonight, 
You better park the car 
Well out of sight. 
'Cos if they catch you in the back seat 
Trying to pick her locks 
They're gonna send you back to mother 
In a card board box 
You better run. 

Pink Floyd - San Tropez

As I reach for a peach 
Slide a line down behind a sofa in San Tropez 
Breaking a stick with a brick on the sand 
Riding a wave in the wake of an old sedan 
Sleeping alone in the drown of the darkness 
Scratched by the sand that fell from my love 
Deep in my dreams and I still hear her calling 
if you're alone, I'll come home 

Backward and homebound, the pigeon, the dove 
Gone with the wind and the rainon an airplane 
Born in a home wiiht no silver spoon 
I'm drinking champagne like a good tycoon 
Sooner than wait for a break in the weather 
I'll gather my far flung thoughts togheter 
Speeding away on a wind to a new day 
I'f you're alone, I'll come home 

And I'll pause for a while by a countr stile 
And listen to the things they 
Diggingfor gold in a hole in my hand 
Open the book, take a look at the way things stand 
And you're leading me down to the place by the sea 
I hear your soft voice calling to me 
Making a date for later by phone 
And if you're alone, I'll come home 

Pink Floyd - Scarecrow

The black and green Scarecrow as everyone knows 
Stood with a bird on his hat and straw everywhere. 
He didn't care. 
He stood in a field where barley grows. 

His head did no thinking 
His arms didn't move except when the wind cut up 
About his head and mice spun around on the ground 
He stood in a field where barley grows. 

The black and green Scarecrow is sadder than me 
But now he's resigned to his fate 
'Cause life's not unkind - he doesn't mind. 
He stood in a field where barley grows. 

Pink Floyd - Seamus

I was in the kitchen 
Seamus, that's the dog, was outside 
Well I was in the kitchen 
Seamus; my old hound, was outside 
Well you know the sun was sinking slowly 
And my old houng-dog sat right down and cried 

Pink Floyd - See Emily play

Emily tries but misunderstands 
She's often inclined to borrow 
Somebody's dreams till tomorrow 

There is no other day 
Let's try it another way 
You'll loose your mind and play 
Free games for May 
See Emily play 

Soon after dark Emily cries 
Gazing through trees in sorrow 
Hardly a sound till tomorrow 

Put on a gown that trouches the ground 
Float on a river 
Forever and ever 
Emily, Emily 

Pink Floyd - See-Saw

Marigolds are very much in love, but he doesn't mind 
Picking up his sister, he makes his way into the seas or land 
All the way she smiles 
She goes up while he goes down, down 
Sits on a stick in the river 
Laughter in his sleep 
Sister's throwing stones, hoping for a hit 
He doesn't know so then 
She goes up while he goes down, down 
Another time, another day 
A brother's way to leave 
Another time, another day 

She'll be selling plastic flowers on a Sunday afternoon 

Picking up weeds, she hasn't got the time to care 
All can see he's not there 
She grows up for another man, and he's down 
Another time, another day 
A brother's way to leave 
Another time, another day 
Another time, another day 
A brother's way to leave 

Pink Floyd - Set the controls for the heart of the sun

Little by little the night turns around 
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn 
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning 
Under the eaves the swallow is resting 
Set the controls for the heart of the sun 

Over the mountain watching the watcher 
Breaking the darkness 
Waking the grapevine 
One inch of love is one inch of shadow 

Pink Floyd - Several species of small furry animals gathered...

Aye an' a bit of Mackeral settler rack and ruin 
ran it doon by the haim, 'ma place 
well I slapped me and I slapped it doon in the side 
and I cried, cried, cried. 

The fear a fallen down taken never back the raize and then Craig Marion, 
get out wi' ye Claymore out mi pocket a' ran doon, doon the middin stain 
picking the fiery horde that was fallen around ma feet. 
Never he cried, never shall it ye get me alive 
ye rotten hound of the burnie crew. Well I snatched fer the blade O my 
Claymore cut and thrust and I fell doon before him round his feet. 

Aye! A roar he cried frae the bottom of his heart that I would nay fall 
but as dead, dead as 'a can be by his feet; de ya ken? 

...and the wind cried back. 

Pink Floyd - Sheep

Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away 
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air 
You better watch out 
There may be dogs about 
I've looked over Jordan and I have seen 
Things are not what they seem. 

What do you get for pretending the danger's not real 
Meek and obidient you follow the leader 
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel 
What a surprise! 
A look of terminal shock in your eyes 
Now things are really what they seem 
No, this is no bad dream. 

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want 
He makes me down to lie 
Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by 
With bright knives he releaseth my soul 
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places 
He converteth me to lamb cutles 
For Lo, he hath great power and great hunger 
When cometh the day we lowly ones 
Through quiet reflection and great dedication 
Master the art of karate 
Lo, we shall rise up 
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water 

Bleeting and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream 
Wave upon wave of demented avengers 
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream 

Have you heard the news? 
The dogs are dead! 
You better stay home 
And do as you're told 
Get out of the road if you want to grow old. 

Pink Floyd - Shine on you crazy diamond

Remember when you were young, 
You shone like the sun. 
Shine on you crazy diamond. 
Now there's a look in your eyes, 
Like black holes in the sky. 
Shine on you crazy diamond. 
You were caught on the crossfire 
Of childhood and stardom, 
Blown on the steel breeze. 
Come on you target for faraway laughter, 
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine! 

You reached for the secret too soon, 
You cried for the moon. 
Shine on you crazy diamond. 
Threatened by shadows at night, 
And exposed in the light. 
Shine on you crazy diamond. 
Well you wore out your welcome 
With random precision, 
Rode on the steel breeze. 
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, 
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine! 

Nobody knows where you are, 
How near or how far. 
Shine on you crazy diamond. 
Pile on many more layers 
And I'll be joining you there. 
Shine on you crazy diamond. 
And we'll bask in the shadow 
Of yesterday's triumph, 
And sail on the steel breeze. 
Come on you boy child, 
You winner and loser, 
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine! 

Pink Floyd - Show must go on

Oooh, Ma, Oooh Pa 
Must the show go on? 
Oooh, Pa. Take me home 
Oooh, Ma. Let me go 

There must be some mistake 
I didnt mean to let them 
Take away my soul. 
Am I too old, is it too late? 

Ooooh, Ma, Ooooh Pa, 
Where has the feeling gone? 
Ooooh, Ma, Ooooh Pa, 
Will I remember the songs? 
The show must go on. 

Pink Floyd - Sorrow

The sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land 
Plumes of smoke rise and merge into the leaden sky: 
A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers, 
But awakes to a morning with no reason for waking 

He's haunted by the memory of a lost paradise 
In his youth or a dream, he can't be precise 
He's chained forever to a world that's departed 
It's not enough, it's not enough 

His blood has frozen & curdled with fright 
His knees have trembled & given way in the night 
His hand has weakened at the moment of truth 
His step has faltered 

One world, one soul 
Time pass, the river roll 

And he talks to the river of lost love and dedication 
and silent replies that swirl invitation 
Flow dark and troubled to an oily sea 
A grim intimation of what is to be 

There's an unceasing wind that blows through this night 
And there's dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight 
And silence that speaks so much louder than words, 
Of promises broken 

Pink Floyd - Spanish Piece

Pass the tequila, Manuel. 
[glug, snort] 

Listen, gringo, 
Laugh at my lisp and I kill you 
I think, 
This Spanish music 
It sets my soul on fire 

Lovely seniorita 
Your eyes are like stars 
Your teeth are like pearls 
Your ruby lips 

Pink Floyd - Speak to me

"I've been mad for fucking years, absolutely years, been 
over the edge for yonks, been working me buns off for bands..." 

"I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the 
most of us...very hard to explain why you're mad, even 
if you're not mad..." 

Pink Floyd - Stay

Stay and help me to end the day. 
And of you don't mind, 
We'll break a bottle of wine. 
Stick around and maybe we'll put one down, 
Because I wanna find what lies behind those eyes. 
Midnight blue burning gold. 
A yellow moon is growing cold. 

I rise, looking through my morning eyes, 
Surprised to find you by my side. 
Rack my brain to try to remember your name 
To find the words to tell you good-bye. 
Morning dues. 
Newborn day. 
Midnight blue turned to gray. 
Midnight blue burning gold. 
A yellow moon is growing cold. 

Pink Floyd - Stop

Stop 
I wanna go home 
Take off this uniform 
And leave the show 
And I'm waiting here in this cell 
Because I have to know 
Have I been guilty all this time 

Pink Floyd - Take up thy stethoscope and walk

Doctor doctor! 
I'm in bed 
Achin' head 
Gold is lead 
Choke on bread 
Underfed 
Gold is lead 
Jesus bled 
Pain is red 
Are goon 
Grow go 
Greasy spoon 
You swoon 
June bloom 

Music seems to help the pain 
Seems to cultivate the brain. 
Doctor kindly tell your wife that 
I'm alive - flowers thrive - realize - realize 
Realize. 

Pink Floyd - The gnome

I want to tell you a story 
About a little man 
If I can. 
A gnome named Grimble Crumble. 
And little gnomes stay in their homes. 
Eating, sleeping, drinking their wine. 

He wore a scarlet tunic, 
A blue green hood, 
It looked quite good. 
He had a big adventure 
Amidst the grass 
Fresh air at last. 
Wining, dining, biding his time. 
And then one day - hooray! 
Another way for gnomes to say 
Oooooooooomray. 

Look at the sky, look at the river 
Isn't it good? 
Look at the sky, look at the river 
Isn't it good? 
Winding, finding places to go. 
And then one day - hooray! 
Another way for gnomes to say 
Oooooooooomray. 
Ooooooooooooooomray. 

Pink Floyd - The gold it´s in the ...

Come on, my friends, 
Let's make for the hills. 
They say there's gold but I'm looking for thrills. 
You can get your hands on whatever we find, 
Because I'm only coming along for the ride. 

Well, you go your way, 
I'll go mine. 
I don't care if we get there on time. 
Everybody's searching for something, they say. 
I'll get my kicks on the way. 

Over the mountains, across the seas 
Who knows what will be waiting for me? 
I could sail forever to strange sounding names. 
Faces of people and places don't change. 

All I have to do is just close my eyes 
To see the seagulls wheeling on those far distant skies. 
All I want to tell you, all I want to say 
Is count me in on the journey. 
Don't expect me to stay. 

Pink Floyd - The narrow way 

Following the path as it leads toward 
The darkness in the north 
Weary stranger's faces show their sympathy 
They've seen that hope before 

And if you want to Stay for a little bit 
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit 
For you the night is beckoning 
And now you can't delay 
You hear the night birds calling you 
But you can't catch the words they say 
And you must you realize be on your way 

Mystery swelling, creatures crawling 
Hear the roar ger louder in your ears 
You know the folly was your own 
But the force behind can't conquer all you fears 

And if you want to Stay for a little bit 
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit 
For you the night is beckoning and you know 
And now you can't delay 
You hear the night birds callling you 
But you can't catch the words they say 
And you must you realize be on your way 

Throw your thoughts back many years 
To the Time when love was life with every morning 
Perhaps a day will come 
When the match for me the curlers past warning 

And if you want to Stay for a little bit 
Rest your aching limbs for a little bit 
For you the night is beckoning 
And now you can't delay 
You hear the night birds calling you 
But you can't catch the words they say 
And you must you realize be on your way 

Pink Floyd - Thin ice

Momma loves her baby 
And daddy loves you too. 
And the sea may look warm to you babe 
And the sky may look blue 
But ooooh Baby 
Ooooh baby blue 
Oooooh babe. 

If you should go skating 
On the thin ice of modern life 
Dragging behind you the silent reproach 
Of a million tear-stained eyes 
Don't be surprised when a crack in the ice 
Appears under your feet. 
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind 
With your fear flowing out behind you 
As you claw the thin ice. 

Pink Floyd - Time

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day 
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. 
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town 
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. 

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain. 
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today. 
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. 
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun. 

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking 
Racing around to come up behind you again. 
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older, 
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death. 

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time. 
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines 
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way 
The time is gone, the song is over, 
Thought I'd something more to say. 

Home, home again 
I like to be here when I can 
And when I come home cold and tired 
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire 
Far away across the field 
The tolling of the iron bell 
Calls the faithful to their knees 
To hear the softly spoken magic spells. 

Pink Floyd - Trial

Good morning, Worm your honor. 
The crown will plainly show 
the prisoner who now stands before you 
Was caught red-handed showing feelings, 
showing feelings of an almost human nature; 
This will not do. 
Call the schoolmaster! 

I always said he'd come to no good 
In the end your honor. 
If they'd let me have my way I could 
Have flayed him into shape. 
But my hands were tied, 
The bleeding hearts and artists 
Let him get away with murder. 
Let me hammer him today? 

Crazy, 
Toys in the attic I am crazy, 
Surly gone fishing 
They must have taken my marbles away 
crazy 
toys in the attic he's crazy 

You little shit you're in it, now 
I hope they throw away the key. 
You should have talked to me more often 
Than you did, but no! You had to go 
Your own way, have you broken any 
Homes up lately? 
Just five minutes, Worm your honor, 
Him and Me, alone. 

Baaaaaaaaaabe! 
Come to mother baby, let me hold you 
in my arms. 
M'lud I never wanted him to 
get in any trouble. 
Why'd he ever have to leave me? 
Worm, your honor, let me take him home. 

Crazy, 
Over the rainbow, I am crazy, 
Bars in the window. 
There must have been a door there in the wall 
when I came in. 
Crazy, over the rainbow, he is crazy. 

The evidence before the court is 
Incontrovertible, there's no need for 
the jury to retire. 
In all my years of judging 
I have never heard before 
Of someone more deserving 
Of the full penalty of law. 
The way you made them suffer, 
Your exquisite wife and mother, 
Fills me with the urge to defecate! 

"Hey Judge! Shit on him!" 
Since, my friend, you have revealed your 
Deepest fear, 
I sentence you to be exposed before 
Your peers. 
Tear down the wall! 

Pink Floyd - Two suns in the sunset

In my rear view mirror the sun is going down 
Sinking behind bridges in the road 
And I think of all the good things 
That we have left undone 
And I suffer premonitions 
Confirm suspicions 
Of the holocaust to come. 

The wire that holds the cork 
That keeps the anger in 
Gives way 
And suddenly it's day again. 
The sun is in the east 
Even though the day is done. 
Two suns in the sunset 
Hmmmmm 
Could be the human race is run. 

Like the moment when the brakes lock 
And you slide towards the big truck 
"Oh no!" 
"Daddy, Daddy!" [scream] 
You stretch the frozen moments with your fear. 
And you'll never hear their voices 
And you'll never see their faces 
You have no recourse to the law anymore. 

And as the windshield melts 
My tears evaporate 
Leaving only charcoal to defend. 
Finally I understand the feelings of the few. 
Ashes and diamonds 
Foe and friend 
We were all equal in the end. 

"...and now the weather. Tomorrow will be cloudy with scattered showers 
Spreading from the east ... with an expected high of 4000 degrees 
Celsius" 

Pink Floyd - Us & them

Us, and them 
And after all we're only ordinary men. 
Me, and you. 
God only knows it's noz what we would choose to do. 
Forward he cried from the rear 
and the front rank died. 
And the general sat and the lines on the map 
moved from side to side. 
Black and blue 
And who knows which is which and who is who. 
Up and down. 
But in the end it's only round and round. 
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words 
The poster bearer cried. 
Listen son, said the man with the gun 
There's room for you inside. 

"I mean, they're not gunna kill ya, so if you give 'em a quick short, 
sharp, shock, they won't do it again. Dig it? I mean he get off 
lightly, 'cos I would've given him a thrashing - I only hit him once! 
It was only a difference of opinion, but really...I mean good manners 
don't cost nothing do they, eh?" 

Down and out 
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about. 
With, without. 
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about? 
Out of the way, it's a busy day 
I've got things on my mind. 
For the want of the price of tea and a slice 
The old man died. 

Pink Floyd - Vera

Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn 
Remember how she said that 
We would meet again 
Some sunny day 
Vera! Vera! 
What has become of you 
Does anybody else in here 
Feel the way I do ? 

Pink Floyd - Waiting for worms

"Eins, zwei, drei, alle!" 
Ooooh, you cannot reach me now 
Ooooh, no matter how you try 
Goodbye, cruel world, it's over 
Walk on by. 

Sitting in a bunker here behind my wall 
Waiting for the worms to come. 
In perfect isolation here behind my wall 
Waiting for the worms to come. 

We're {waiting to succeed} and going to convene outside Brixton 
Town Hall where we're going to be... 
Waiting to cut out the deadwood. 
Waiting to clean up the city. 
Waiting to follow the worms. 
Waiting to put on a black shirt. 
Waiting to weed out the weaklings. 
Waiting to smash in their windows 
And kick in their doors. 
Waiting for the final solution 
To strengthen the strain. 
Waiting to follow the worms. 
Waiting to turn on the showers 
And fire the ovens. 
Waiting for the queens and the coons 
and the reds and the jews. 
Waiting to follow the worms. 

Would you like to see Britannia 
Rule again, my friend? 
All you have to do is follow the worms. 
Would you like to send our colored cousins 
Home again, my friend? 

All you need to do is follow the worms. 

The Worms will convene outside Brixton Bus Station. 

Pink Floyd - Welcome to the machine

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine 
Where have you been? 
It's alright we know where you've been 
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time, 
provided with toys and Scouting for Boys 
You bought a guitar to punish your ma, 
And you didn't like school, 
and you know you're nobody's fool 
So welcome to the machine 

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine 
What did you dream? 
It's alright we told you what to dream 
You dreamed of a big star, he played a mean guitar 
He always ate in the steak bar 
He loved to drive in this Jaguar 
So welcome to the machine 

Pink Floyd - When the tigers broke free

It was just before dawn one miserable morning 
In black forty-four 
When the forward commander was told to sit tight 
When asked that his men be withdrawn 
And the generals gave thanks as the other ranks 
held back the enemy tanks - for a while 
And then the Anzio beachhead was held for the price 
of a few hundred ordinary lives 

And kind old King George sent mother a note 
When he heard that father was gone 
It was, I recall, in the form of a scroll 
With golden leaf and all 
And I found it one day in a drawer of old 
Photographs hidden away 
And my eyes still grow damp to remember 
His Majesty signed with his own rubber stamp 

It was dark all around 
There was frost in the ground 
When the tigers broke free 
And noone survived from the Royal Fusiliers Company C 
They were all left behind 
Most of them dead 
The rest of them dying 
And that's how the High Command took my Daddy from 
me 

Pink Floyd - Wish you were here

So, so you 
think you can tell. Heaven from hell, blue skies from pain. 
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail? 
A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell? 

And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? 
Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for 
change? 
And did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in 
a cage? 

How I wish, how I wish you were here. 
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after 
year. 
Running over the same old ground. What have we found? 
The same old fears. Wish you were here. 

Pink Floyd - Wot´s ... uh the deal

Heaven sent the promised land 
Looks alright from where I stand 
Cause I'm the man on the outside looking in 

Waiting on the first step 
Show where the key is kept 
Point me down the right line because it's time 

To let me in from the cold 
Turn my lead into gold 
Cause there's chill wind blowing in my soul 
And I think I'm growing old 

Flash the readies... wots...uh the deal 
Got to make to the next meal 
Try to keep up with the turning of the wheel. 

Mile after mile 
Stone after stone 
Turn to speak but you're alone 
Million miles from home you're on your own 

So let me in from the cold 
Turn my lead into gold 
Cause there's chill wind blowing in my soul 
And I think I'm growing old 

Fire bright by candlelight 
And her by my side 
And if she prefers we will never stir again 

Someone said the promised land 
And I grabbed it with both hands 
Now I'm the man on the inside looking out 

Hear me shout "Come on in, 
What's the news and where you been?" 
Cause there's no wind left in my soul 
And I've grown old 

Pink Floyd - Young lust

I am just a new boy, 
Stranger in this town. 
Where are all the good times? 
Who's gonna show this stranger around? 
Ooooh, I need a dirty woman. 
Ooooh, I need a dirty girl. 

Will some cold woman in this desert land 
Make me feel like a real man? 
Take this rock and roll refugee 
Oooh, baby set me free. 

Ooooh, I need a dirty woman. 
Ooooh, I need a dirty girl. 

[Phone rings..Clink of receiver being lifted] 
"Hello..?" 
"Yes, a collect call for Mrs. Floyd from Mr. Floyd. 
Will you accept the charges from United States?" 
[clunk! of phone being put down] 
"Oh, He hung up! That's your residence, right? I wonder why he hung up? 
Is there supposed to be someone else there besides your wife there to 
answer?" 
[Phone rings again...clunk of receiver being picked up] 
"Hello?" 
"This is United States calling, are we reaching... 
[interrupted by phone being put down] 
"See he keeps hanging up, and it's a man answering." 
[whirr of connection being closed]
