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 & curdled with fright 

His knees have trembled & 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 rolls 

It's not enough it's not enough 

His hand has faltered 

.... .... ...... 

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 that words, 

Of promises broken
