Track List
01 Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part One) Remember when you were young nYou shone like the Sun nShine on, you crazy diamond ! nNow there's a look in your eyes nLike black holes in the sky nShine on, you crazy diamond ! nYou were caughton the crossfire nOf childhood and stardom nBlown on the steel breeze nCome on, you target for faraway laughter nCome on, you stranger, you legend, you martyr nAnd shine ! n nYou reached for the secret too soon nYou cried for the Moon. nShine on, you crazydiamond ! nThreatened by shadows at night nAnd exposed in the light nShine on, you crazy diamond ! nWell you wore out your welcome nWith random precision nRode on the steel breeze nCome on, you raver, you seer of visions nCome on, you painter, you piper, you prisoner nAnd shine ! n 13:33
02 Welcome To The Machine Welcome, my son, welcome to the machine nWhere have you been ? nIt's alright we know where have you been. nYou've been in the pipeline, filling in time nProvided with toys and Scouting for Boys nYou bought a guitar to punish your ma nAnd you didn't like school nAnd you know you're nobody's fool nSo welcome to the machine n nWelcome my son, welcome to the machine nWhat did you dream ? nIt's alright we told you what to dream. nYou dreamed of a big star nHe played mean guitar nHe always ate in the Steak Bar nHe loved to drive in his Jaguar nSo welcome to the Machine n 07:26
03 Have A Cigar Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar nYou're gonna go far, nYou're gonna fly high, you're never gonna die, nYou're gonna make it if you try nI gonna love you nWell I've always had a deep respect nAnd I mean that most sincerely nThe band is just fantastic, nThat is reallywhat I think nOh, by the way which one's Pink ? nAnd did we tell you the name of the game, boy nWe call it Riding the Gravy Train n nWe're just knocked out nWe heard about the sell out nYou gotta get analbum out nYou owe it to the people nWe're so happy we can hardly count ! nEverybody else is just green, nHave you seen the chart ? nIt's a helluva start, nIt could be made into a monster nIf we all pull together as a team nAnd did we tell you the name of the Game, boy nWe call it Riding the Gravy Train n 05:07
04 Wish You Were Here So, so you think you can tell nHeaven from Hell nBlue skies from Pain nCan you tell a green field nFrom a cold steel rail ? nA smile from a veil ? nDo you think you can tell nAnd did they get you to trade nYour heroes for ghosts ? nHot ashes for trees ? nHot air for a cool breeze ? nCold comfort for chains ? nAnd did you exchange nA walk on part in the war nFor a lead role in a cage n nHow I wish, how I wish you were here nWe're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl nYear after year nRunning over the same old ground nWhat have we found ? nThe same old fears nWish you were here n 05:40
05 Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Part Two) Nobody knows where you are nHow near or how far nShine on, you crazy d niamond ! nPile on many more layers nAnd I'll be joining you there nShi nne on, you crazy diamond ! nAnd we'll bask inthe shadow nOf yesterday n's triumph nAnd sail on the steel breeze nCome on, you boy child, you nwinner and loser nCome on, you miner for truth and delusion nAnd shine n ! n n 12:22
