Learning to Fly
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 holding me fast, how
Can I escape this irresistible grasp?
Can't keep my eyes...
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?
Did you exchange a walk on part in...
One of my faves...I think it has a different sound for Floyd, and I totally dig it. ;)
I am just a new boy

A New Machine - Part I

This sound, this humbling song, it makes me think about this tiny world around me.
As I prepare myself to leave for college, I recognize that I am leaving such a small community of people that I've known for 12 years of my life and I'm sailing out into the world, my existence...
On the Turning Away
On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"
