Hey You  (Waters) 4:39

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.

    "Well, only got an hour of daylight left. Better get started"
    "Isnt it unsafe to travel at night?"
    "It'll be a lot less safe to stay here. You're father's gunna pick up our trail before long"
    "Can Loca ride?"
    "Yeah, I can ride... Magaret, time to go! Maigret, thank you for everything"
    "Goodbye Chenga"
    "Goodbye miss ..."
    "I'll be back"
        Comfortably Numb (Gilmour, Waters) 6:49

        Hello?
        Is there anybody in there?
        Just nod if you can hear me.
        Is there anyone at home?
        Come on, now,
        I hear you're feeling down.
        Well I can ease your pain
        Get you on your feet again.
        Relax.
        I'll 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, smoke on the horizon.
        You are only coming through in waves.
        Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
        When I was a child I had a fever
        My hands felt just like two balloons.
        Now I've got that feeling once again
        I can't explain you would not understand
        This is not how I am.
        I have become comfortably numb.

        O.K.
        Just a little pinprick.
        There'll be no more aaaaaaaaah!
        But you may feel a little sick.
        Can you stand up?
        I do believe it's working, good.
        That'll keep you going through the show
        Come on it's time to go.

        There is no pain you are receding
        A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
        You are only coming through in waves.
        Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
        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
        Another Brick in the Wall Part 2  (Waters) 3:56

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

        We don't need no education
        We dont need no thought control
        No dark sarcasm in the classroom
        Teachers leave them kids alone
        Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
        All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
        All in all you're just another brick in the wall.
          "Wrong, Do it again!"
          "If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you
          have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"
          "You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!"
              High Hopes  (Gilmour, Samson) 8:31

              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 times 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
              When 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

               Wish You Were Here  (Waters, Gilmour) 5:17

              So, so you think you can tell
              Heaven from Hell,
              Blue skys 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 heros 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
              Time  (Mason, Waters, Wright, Gilmour) 7:06

              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
              Money  (Waters) 6:32

              Money, get away.
              Get a good job with good pay and you're okay.
              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 of my stack.
              Money, it's a hit.
              Don't give me that do goody good bullshit.
              I'm in the high-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 raise 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"


               Us and Them (Waters, Wright) 7:40
              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.

              Brain Damage (Waters) 3:50

              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 forebodings 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 'til 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.

              "I can't think of anything to say except...
              I think it's marvelous! HaHaHa!" 


              Eclipse (Waters) 2:04

              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."
