(1973) Dark Side Of The Moon

24. 9. 2006

Speak to me/Breathe

Breathe, breathe in the air

don't be afraid to care

leave but don't leave me

look around, choose your own ground

for long you live and high you fly

and smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry

and all your 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

 

 

 

 

Time

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

And 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

And 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 nought

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

Breathe reprise

Home, home again

I like to be here when I can

when I come home cold and tired

it's good to warm my bones beside the fire

far away across the field

the tolling of the iron bell

calls the faithful to their knees

to hear the softly spoken magic spells

 

 

 

 

 

Money

Money, get away

get a good job with more pay and you're O.K.

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 my stack

money, it's a hit

don't give me that do goody good bullshit

I'm in the hi-fidelity first class travelling 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 rise it's no surprise that they're

giving none away, away, away

 

 

 

 

 

Us and them

Us and them

and after all we're only ordinary men

me and you

God only knows it's not 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

and in the end it's only round and 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

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 want of the price of tea and a slice

the old man died

 

 

 

 

Brain damage

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 the 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 rearrange me ' till 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

 

 

 

 

Eclipse

All that you touch and all that you see

all that you taste, all you feel

and all that you love and all that you hate

all you distrust, all you save

and all that you give and all that you deal

and all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal

and all you create and all you destroy

and all that you do and all that you say

and all that you eat and everyone you meet

and all that you slight and everyone you fight

and all that is now and all that is gone

and all that's to come and everything under the sun is in tune

but the sun is eclipsed by the moon
