wish you were here

so
so you thinq you can tell
heaven from hell
blue skies from pain

can you tell a green field
from a cold steel rain

a smile from a veil

do you think you can tell

did they ask you to trade
your heroes for goals
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 the lead role in a cage

how i wish you were here

we're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
year after year

going over the same old ground
what have we found?
the same old fears

wish you were here

-- Pink Floyd
