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

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?

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 
And how we found 
The same old fears 
Wish you were here
