Pink Floyd

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

Into the distance a ribbon of black  Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
 Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp? 

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
 Tongue tied and twisted just an earth bound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings  Unheeded warnings I thought I thought of everything 
No navigator to find my way home
Unladened, empty and turned to stone 

A soul in tension that's learning to fly
 Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

 Friction lock, set
Mixtures, rich
Propellers, fully forward
Flaps, set, ten degrees  Engine gauges and suction, check 

 Mixture set to maximum percent, recheck  Flight instruments
Altimeters, check both
(Garbled word) - on
 Navigation lights, on
Strobes, on
 Confirm three-eight-echo ready for departure  Hello again, this is now 129.4
129.4, it's to go 
You may commence your takeoff, winds over ten knots 
Easy on the brakes, take it easy, its gonna roll this time
Just hand the power gradually, and it

 Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air,
 Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
 Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night 

There's no sensation to compare with this
 Suspended animation, a state of bliss 
Can't keep my mind from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
