ASTRONOMY DOMINÉ (Syd 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 surrounds

The icy waters under

Lime and limpid green, the sounds surrounds

The icy waters underground

CAREFUL WITH THAT AXE, EUGÈNE (Gilmour, Mason, Waters, Wright)

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 surrounds

The icy waters under

Lime and limpid green, the sounds surrounds

The icy waters underground

SET THE CONTROLS FOR THE HEART OF THE SUN (Roger Waters)

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

Love is the shadow that ripens the wine


Set the controls for the heart of the sun

The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun


Witness the man who raves at the wall

Making the shape of his questions to Heaven

Whether the sun will fall in the evening

Will he remember the lesson of giving?

GRANTCHESTER MEADOWS (Roger Waters)

“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

Belied the deathly silence that lay all around


Hear the lark and harken to the barking of the dog 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 and harken to the barking of the dog 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 and harken to the barking of the dog 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

SEVERAL SPECIES OF SMALL FURRY ANIMALS GATHERED TOGETHER IN A CAVE AND GROOVING WITH A PICT (Roger Waters)

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 fet 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 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 Mary … Thank you

THE NARROW WAY (PART 3) (David Gilmour)

Following the path as it leads towards

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

Close your ears and eyes, be on your way

Mist is swirling, creatures crawling

Hear the roar get 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 now you can’t delay

You hear the night birds calling you

But you can’t catch the words they say

Close your ears and eyes, 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 lights will be as clear as on that morning


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

Close your ears and eyes, be on your way
