My first experience with Pink Floyd is listening to it young due to it being one of my mother’s favourite bands. As I got older my musical tastes grew in their direction. Now I can clearly see Pink Fyold’s influence throughout the progressive/experimental genres of today. Their philosophical type of musical lyrics delivers while still being as relevant to today.

Pink Floyd Lyrics

  • You are only coming through in waves. Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying. Comfortably Numb
  • We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year  Wish You Were Here
  • All you need to do is follow the worms. Waiting For The Worms
  • All you touch and all you see is all your life will ever beBreathe
  • I am just a new boy, Stranger in this town. Where are all the good times? Who’s gonna show this stranger around? Oooh, I need a dirty woman. Oooh, I need a dirty girl – Young Lust
  • Everything under the sun is in tune/and the sun is eclipsed by the moon. Eclipse
  • Have you heard the news? The dogs are dead. You better stay home and do what you’re told. Get out of the road if you want to grow old – Sheep (Animals)
  • So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking. Racing around to come up behind you again. The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older, Shorter of breath and one day closer to death. – Time
  • Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies/ Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit – Learning To Fly
  • Money It’s a crime/ share it fairly but don’t take a slice of my pie/ Money So they say Is the root of all evil today/ But if you ask forraise It’s no surprise that they’re giving none away. Money
  • Hello? Hello? Is there anybody in there? Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home? – Comfortably Numb
  • If you should go skating, On the thin ice of modern life, Dragging behind you the silent reproach, Of a million tear-stained eyes, Don’t be surprised when a crack in the ice, Appears under your feet, You slip out of your depth and out of your mind, With your fear flowing out behind you, As you claw the thin ice – The Thin Ice
  • Strangers passing in the street, By chance two separate glances meet, And I am you and what I see is me Echoes
  • Over the mountain watching the watcher, Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine, One inch of love is one inch of shadow, Love is the shadow that ripens the wine, Set the controls for the heart of the sun – Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun
  • You raise the blade, you make the change. – Brain Damage
  • Encumbered forever by desire and ambition. – High Hopes
  • We don’t need no education, We don’t need no thought control, No dark sarcasm in the classroom, Teachers leave them kids alone, Hey, teachers, leave them kids alone, All in all it’s just another brick in the wall, All in all you’re just another brick in the wall – Another Brick In The Wall, Part II

With 165 individual songs out since their first mainstream album, surely there are some lyrics that I have missed. Want to see a live performance of music I like again, I am considering getting a ticket for The Australian Pink Floyd Show. Because my chances of seeing the simular band Tool was cut off as it sold out Rob Laver Arena twice.
