Wish you Were Here

Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 1-5) (Gilmour, Waters, Wright)

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught in the crossfire of childhood and
stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger
You legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon
Shine on you crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision
Rode on the steel breeze
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter
You piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Welcome to the Machine (Waters)

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
Where have you been? It's alright we know where you've been
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time,
provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.
You bought a guitar to punish your ma
And you didn't like school, and you know you're nobody's fool
So welcome to the machine

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine
What did you dream? It's alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star, he played a mean gituar
He always ate in the Steak Bar. He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the Machine

Have a Cigar (Waters)

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar.
You're gonna go far, you're gonna fly high
You're never gonna die, you're gonna make it if you try;
they're gonna love you
Well I've always had a deep respect, and I mean that most sincerely
The band is just fantastic, that is really what I think.
Oh by the way which one's Pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
we call it Riding the Gravy Train

We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out.
You gotta get an album out
You owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count
Everybody else is just green, have you seen the chart?
It's a hell of a start, it could be made into a monster
if we all pull together as a team
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy,
we call it Riding the Gravy Train

Wish You Were Here (Waters, Gilmour)

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?

And 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.
What have we found? The same old fears
Wish you were here

Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts 6-9) (Waters, Wright, Gilmour)

Nobody knows where you are, how near or how far
Shine on you crazy diamond
Pile on many more layers and I'll be joining you there
Shine on you crazy diamond
And we'll bask in the shadow Of yesterday's triumph,
and sail on the steel breeze
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine
