Lyrics

Shine On You Crazy Diamond (parts I-IV)
13:31
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
07:27
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 at the steak bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the machine
Have a Cigar
05:08
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 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
Wish You Were Here
05:40
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?

And did they get you to trade your heroes 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 you found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
Shine On You Crazy Diamond (parts V-IX)
12:23
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!
