Shine On You Crazy Diamond Part 1-5                    Lyrics

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome To The Machine                Lyrics

 

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 brought 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 gituar,
He always ate in the Steak Bar.
He loved to drive in his Jaguar.
So welcome to the Machine.

 

 

 

 

Have A Cigar             Lyrics

 

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar.

You're gonna go far, 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 is 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 gotta get an album 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 helluva 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.

 

 

 

 

Wish You Were Here                        Lyrics

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Shine On You Crazy Diamond Part 6-9                    Lyrics

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!
