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 anymore?

Play these strings until my fingers are raw


You're so hard to please

What do you want from me?

Do you think that 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?

POLES APART (Laird-Clowes, Samson, Gilmour)

Did you know

It was all going to go so wrong for you?

And did you see

It was all going 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 realize 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 it never bothered you anyway?

Leading the blind while I stared out the steel in your 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?

(Did you know)

I never thought that you’d lose that light in your eyes

MAROONED (Wright, Gilmour)

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 came 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 neighbors 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 grey


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 bitter residues slipped away...

Slipped away

WEARING THE INSIDE OUT (Wright, Moore)

From morning to night I stayed out of sight

Didn’t recognize I’d become

No more than alive; I’d barely survive

In a word… overrun


Won’t hear a sound (He’s curled into the corner)

From my mouth (But still the screen is flickering)

I’ve spent too long (With an endless stream of garbage to)

On the inside out (…curse the place)

My skin is cold (In a sea of random images)

To the human touch (The self-destructing animal)

This bleeding heart’s (Waiting for the waves to break)

Not beating much


I murmured a vow of silence and now

I don’t even hear when I think aloud

Extinguished by light I turn on the night

Wear its darkness with an empty smile


I’m creeping back to life

My nervous system all awry

I’m wearing the inside out

Look at him now

He’s paler somehow

But he’s coming around

He’s starting to choke

It’s been so long since he spoke

Well he can have the words right from my mouth


And with these words I can see

Clear through the clouds that covered me

Just give it time then speak my name

Now we can hear ourselves again

I’m holding out (He’s standing on the threshold)

For the day (Caught in fiery anger)

When all the clouds (And hurled into the furnace he’ll)

Have blown away (…curse the place)

I’m with you now (He’s torn in all directions)

Can speak your name (And still the screen is flickering)

Now we can hear (Waiting for the flames to break)

Ourselves again

TAKE IT BACK (Ezrin, Nick Laird-Clowes, Samson, Gilmour)

Her love rains down on me easy as the breeze

I listen to her breathing, it sounds like the waves on the sea

I was thinking all about her, burning with rage and desire

We were spinning into darkness; the earth was on fire


She could take it back, she might take it back someday


So I spied on her, I lied to her, I made promises I cannot keep

Then I hear their laughter rising, rising from the deep

And I make her prove her love for me, I take all that I can take

And I push her to the limit to see if she will break


She might take it back, she could take it back some day

Ring-a-ring o’ roses

A pocket full of posies

A-tishoo! A-tishoo!

We all fall down


Now I have seen the warnings, screaming from all sides

It’s easy to ignore them, God knows I’ve tried

All of this temptation, you know it turned my faith to lies

Until I couldn’t see the danger or hear the rising tide


She can take it back, she will take it back some day

She can take it back, she will take it back some day

She will take it back, she will take it back some day

COMING BACK TO LIFE (David 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?

‘Cause 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

KEEP TALKING (Samson, Wright, Gilmour)

« 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

And no one can bother me

I think I should speak now (Why won’t you talk to me?)

I can’t seem to speak now (You never talk to me)

My words won’t come out right (What are you thinking?)

I feel like I’m drowning (What are you feeling?)

I’m feeling weak now (Why won’t you talk to me?)

But I can’t show my weakness (You never talk to me)

I sometimes wonder (What are you thinking?)

Where do we go from here (What are you feeling?)


« It doesn’t have to be like this

All we need to do is make sure we keep talking»


(Why won’t you 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

(Why won’t you talk to me?)

(You never talk to me)

(What are you thinking?)

(Where do we go from here?)

LOST FOR WORDS (Samson, Gilmour)

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

‘Cause there’ll be no safety in numbers

When the right one walks out of the door

« Ladies and gentlemen!

The winner

By a knockout »


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

HIGH HOPES (Samson, Gilmour)

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


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

For ever and ever
