You stopped quoting the lyrics just before my favorite part,
which describes current band conditions between the US west
coast and Europe:
"You are receding.
A distant ship's smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying."
Dave Hachadorian, K6LL
One of my all time favorite songs.
I saw the "Floyd" live a couple times at Ohio Stadium when I lived in Columbus
, Ohio... All I can say is WOW !!!!
