SIWMKTK – Songs I’d Want My Kids To Know #3

Wish You Were Here
Artist: Pink Floyd
Album: Wish You Were Here
Year: 1975
Writers: Roger Waters, David Gilmour

Lyrics

On April 6 1968 Pink Floyd announced that their singer Syd Barrett had finally left the band due to suffering from psychiatric disorders. Among other themes, the album Wish You Were Here deals with Barrett leaving Pink Floyd. The song Wish You Were Here is one of my favorite songs from the album. It’s quiet, beautiful and can be applied to so many different situations.

My favorite lines:

So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
(Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here)

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

(Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here)

What do you think about that song? Are there any particular songs you’d like your kids to know?

When Push Comes To Shove

[0:26 – 0:34]
We are the egotistical pigs of a new generation
The self-made gods, the pride of a nation
It’s only ourselves that we see in the mirror
It’s only then that we answer our prayers

[0:34 – 0:43]
Digital prostitution of a heart and a soul
When we’re mentally naked is when we feel whole
A hole is the start of an opening abyss
Who are you to point a gun to MY CHEST?

[0:43 – 1:09]
Blow my mind, blow it away
I won’t mind, blow it away
But when push comes to shove
Who’s to RUN? Who’s to STAY?

[1:27 – 1:36]
We rise from the graves we dug for our fathers
Digesting our lies, feed them to our mothers
Searching for truth but we missed her
That’s why we’re killing our brothers and raping our sisters

[1:36 – 1:44]
Digital frustration of a heart and a soul
When we’re mentally raging is when we feel whole
A hole is the start of an opening abyss
Who are you to point a gun to MY CHEST?

[1:44 – 2:10]
Blow my mind, blow it away
I won’t mind, blow it away
But when push comes to shove
Who’s to RUN? Who’s to STAY?

[2:50 – 2:58]
We are the egoistical pigs of a new generation
The self-made gods, the final destination
We see only ourselves in the glass of a mirror
It’s only then that we answer our PRAYERS

[2:58 – 3:25]
Blow my mind, blow it away
I won’t mind, blow it away
But when push comes to shove
Who’s to RUN? Who’s to STAY?

[3:28 – 3:51]
Blow my mind, BLOW IT AWAY
I won’t mind, BLOW IT AWAY
But when push comes to shove
Who’s to RUN? WHO’S TO STAY?
