Shine On You Crazy Diamond (1-5)

Part 1:Wright, Waters, Gilmour
Part 2:Gilmour, Waters, Wright
Part 3:Waters, Gilmour, Wright
Part 4:Gilmour, Wright, Waters
Part 5:Waters

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 percision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!


Astronomy Domine (Barrett)

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 surronds
The icy waters under
Lime and limpid green, the sounds surronds
The icy waters underground.


What Do You Want From Me (Gilmour/Samson)

As you look around this room tonight
Settle in your seat and dim the lights
Do you want my blood, do you want my tears
What do you want
What do you want from me
Should I sing until I can't sing any more
Play these strings until my fingers are raw
You're so hard to please
What do you want from me

Do you think I know something you don't know
What do you want from me
If I don't promise you the answers would you go
What do you want from me
Should I stand out in the rain
Do you want me to make a daisy chain for you
I'm not the one you need
What do you want from me

You can have anything you want
You can drift, you can dream, even walk on water
Anything you want

You can own everything you see
Sell your soul for complete control
Is that really what you need

You can lose yourself this night
See inside there is nothing to hide
Turn and face the light

What do you want from me


Learning to Fly (Gilmour,Moore,Ezrin,Carin)

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 is 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

  • Friction lock - set.
    Mixture - rich
    Propellers - fully forward
    Flaps - set - 10 degrees
    Engine gauges and suction - check

    Mixture set to maximum percent - recheck
    Flight instruments...
    Altimeters - check both
    (garbled word) - on
    Navigation lights - on
    Strobes - on
    (to tower): Confirm 3-8-Echo ready for departure
    (tower): Hello again, this is now 129.4
    (to tower): 129.4. It's to go.
    (tower): You may commence your takeoff, winds over 10 knots.
    (to tower): 3-8-Echo
    Easy on the brakes. Take it easy. Its gonna roll this time.
    Just hand the power gradually, and it...
  • 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


    Coming Back To Life (Gilmour)

    Where were you when I was burned and broken
    While the days slipped by from my window watching
    And 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


    Hey You (Waters)

    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.

  • [Click of TV being turned on]
    "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"

  • A 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


    Sorrow (Gilmour)

    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 rolls

  • It's not enough it's not enough
    His hand has faltered
    .... .... ......
  • 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 that words,
    Of promises broken


    High Hopes(Gilmour, Samson)

    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 sleeping 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


    Another Brick in the Wall part 2 (Waters)

    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!"

  • Speak to Me (Mason)

  • "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..."
  • (Instrumental)



    "Breathe" (Waters, Gilmour, Wright)

    Breathe, breathe in the air.
    Don't be afraid to care.
    Leave but don't leave me.
    Look around and choose your own ground.

    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, rabbit run.
    Dig that hole, forget the sun,
    And when at last the work is done
    Don't sit down it's time to dig 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 towards an early grave.


    On The Run (Gilmour, Waters)

  • [female announcer, announcing flights at airport, including 'Rome']
    "Live for today, gone tomorrow, that's me, HaHaHaaaaaa!"
  • (Instrumental)



    Time (Mason, Waters, Wright, Gilmour)


    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.
     



    The Great Gig in the Sky (Wright)

  • "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."
  • (Instrumental)
     


    Money (Waters)

    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)

    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)

    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)

    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."

  • Wish You Were Here (Waters, Gilmour)

    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.


    Comfortably Numb (Waters)

    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.


    Run Like Hell (Gilmour, Waters)

  • "Pink Floyd, Pink Floyd"
  • Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run,
    Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run.
    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 bile rising from your guilty past.
    With your nerves in tatters
    When the conchshell shatters
    And the hammers batter
    Down the door.
    You'd better run.

    Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run,
    Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run, Run.
    You better sleep all day
    And run all night.
    Keep your dirty feelings
    Deep inside.
    And if you're taking your girlfriend
    Out tonight
    You'd better park the car
    Well out of sight.
    Cause if they catch you in the back seat
    Trying to pick her locks,
    They're gonna send you back to mother
    In a cardboard box.
    You better run.

  • "Hey, open up! HaHaHaHaHaaaaaaaaaa!
