Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. more »

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 times 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 
When friends surrounded
The nights of wonder 

 Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
 Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again  Dragged by the force of some in a tide
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled 
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world 

 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

 Forever and ever
