SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND (PART 1-5) (Wright, Waters, Gilmour)

PART 1 (Wright, Gilmour, Waters)/PART 2 (Gilmour, Wright, Waters)/PART 3 (Gilmour, Wright, Waters)/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 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 (Roger Waters) © 1982 Roger Waters Overseas Ltd.

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 bought 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 guitar

He always ate in the Steak Bar

He loved to drive in his Jaguar


So welcome to the Machine

HAVE A CIGAR (Roger Waters)

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar

You're gonna go far

You're gonna 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 hell of a 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

- Yes and um, I’m with you Derek, this star nonsense

- Yes, yes

- Now which is it ?

- I am sure of it »


So, so you think you can tell

Heaven from Hell

Blue skies from pain

Can you tell a green field

From a cold steel rail

A smile from a veil

Do you think you can tell ?


Did they get you to trade

Your heroes for ghosts

Hot ashes for trees

Hot air for a cool breeze


Cold comfort for change

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

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!
