Pink Floyd

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

The sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land
 Plumes of smoke rise and merge into the leaden sky
A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers 
But awakes to a morning with no reason for waking 

He’s haunted by the memory of a lost paradise 
In his youth or a dream, he can’t be precise 
He’s chained forever to a world that’s departed 
It’s not enough, it’s not enough 

His blood has frozen and curdled with fright 
His knees have trembled and given way in the night 
His hand has weakened at the moment of truth 
His step has faltered 

One world, one soul
Time pass, the river roll

And he talks to the river of lost love and dedication 
And silent replies that swirl invitation
Flow dark and troubled to an oily sea
A grim intimation of what is to be

There’s an unceasing wind that blows through this night 
And there’s dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight 
And silence that speaks so much louder than words 
Of promises broken
