far from flying high in clear blue skies

Through the fish eyed lens of tear stained eyes

I can barely define the shape of this moment in time

and far from flying high in clear blue skies

I'm spiralling down to the hole in the ground where I hide

 

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive

and beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes

and if you make it past the shotgun in the hall

dial the combination open the priesthole

and if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall

There's a kid who had a big hallucination

making love to girls in magazines

he wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith

could anybody love him

or is it just a crazy dream

 

And if I show you my dark side

will you still hold me tonight

and if I open my heart to you

and show you my weak side

what would you do

would you sell your story to rolling stone

would you take the children away

and leave me alone

and smile in reassurance

as you whisper down the phone

would you send me packing

or would you take me home

 

Thought I ought to bare my naked feelings

Thought I ought to tear the curtain down

I held the blade in trembling hands

prepared to make it but just then the phone rang

I never had the nerve to make the final cut

 

The final cut - Pink Floyd
