IS SOMETHING ELUDING YOU SUNSHINE?
IS THIS NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED TO SEE?
MOMMA LOVES HER BABY
AND DADDY LOVES YOU TOO
THE SEA MAY LOOK WARM TO YOU BABE
AND THE SKIES MAY LOOK BLUE
Does anyone else think Roger Waters is pulling a huge George Lucas with this?
First of all, calling it 'Roger Waters: The Wall', sorry, but wasn't the dude who actually legitimately went crazy because his friends were materialistic cocks who hijacked his music for financial gain one of the main inspirations behind this album?
Waters strikes me as this pretentious pseudo-bohemian who's flirting with girls being like 'Yeah, I knew Syd, he would really only ever open up to me, y'know? Like, I was the one he could confide in.'
Whatever, branding I guess. I did ignore that to begin with and honestly gave it a shot. The whole time Roger Waters is up on stage, reveling in the fanfare and MISSING THE FUCKING POINT ENTIRELY. He's like "Yeah. Fuck yeah. You guys love me. I really could be a fuckin' dictator, how cool is that? Bitches!"
Fuck Roger Waters, if there is justice in the universe it will be revealed that he's a pederast, he'll lose all credibility and get raped in prison.
IF YOU SHOULD GO SKATING
ON THE THIN ICE OF MODERN LIFE
DRAGGING BEHIND YOU THE SILENT REPROACH OF A MILLION TEAR STAINED EYES
Daaaaaaaaddy's flown, cross the ocean
leaving just a MEMORY
a snapshot in the family album
daddy what else did you leave for me?
DADDY WHAT YA LEAVE BEHIND FOR ME
all in all it was
just a brick in the wall
all in all you were
all just bricks in the wall
STAND STILL LADDY
dun dununununun dun
when were young and went to school
there were several teachers who
would hurt the children anyway they could
by pouring their derisions on anything we did
exposing every weakness however carefully hidden by the kids
B-B-B-BUT IN THE TOWN IT WAS WELL KNOWN THAT WHEN THEY GOT HOME AT NIGHT
THEIR FAT AND PSYCHOPATHIC WIVES WOULD THRASH THEM WITHIN INCHES OF THEIR LIVES
>wasn't the dude who actually legitimately went crazy because his friends were materialistic cocks who hijacked his music for financial gain one of the main inspirations behind this album?
No. You're thinking of "Wish You Were Here".
"The Wall" was inspired by Waters' concern that he was turning into a monster after he spat in a fan's face on stage. Hence, the fascist phase depicted near the album's end, followed by a introspective show trial.
Why does he look so much better at 70 than he did at 30?
fuck off gilmourfag. the wall is roger's masterpiece, and 90% of it is about him. the only lines that dont refer to him are in Nobody Home: I got wild staring eyes (syd) and before that: got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains (wright)
I had the pleasure of seeing this in Chicago.
It was even at the height of my Pink Floyd fanaticism in High School. I was always a Roger guy too, fuck Gilmourfags.
Yeah he's tone deaf, but there was a click-track playing in the phones, because everything had to be perfectly synchronised.
>mfw Roger or David are next on the death list
I've also heard that he just preferred using headphones over a monitor. Apparently it helped with the tone-deafness. And this was before singers had those tiny in-ear ones.
AND NO ONE SINGS ME LULLABIES
AND NO ONE MAKES ME CLOSE MY EYES
DAY AFTER DAY
LOVE TURNS GRAY
LIKE THE SKIN OF A DYING MAN
AND NIGHT AFTER NIGHT
WE PRETEND IT'S ALRIGHT
BUT I HAVE GROWN OLDER
AND YOU HAVE GROWN COLDER
AND NOTHING IS VERY MUCH FUN
fuck that song's lyrics hit too close to home
