[Verse 1: David Gilmour] You got to be crazy, you gotta have a real need Gotta sleep on your toes and when you're on the street Got to be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight You got to strike when the moment is right, without thinking And after a while, you can work on points for style Like the club tie, and the firm handshake A certain look in the eye and an easy smile You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to So that when they turn their backs on you You'll get the chance to put the knife in [Guitar Solo] [Verse 2: David Gilmour] You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder You know, it's going to get harder, harder and harder As you get older Yeah, and in the end you'll pack up and fly down south Hide your head in the sand Just another sad old man All alone and dying of cancer [Instrumental: 03:05 – 06:46] [Verse 3: David Gilmour] And when you lose control You'll reap the harvest you have sown And as the fear grows The bad blood slows and turns to stone And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around So have a good drown, as you go down all alone Dragged down by the stone [Interlude: 08:03 – 12:15] (Stone, stone, stone…) [Verse 4: Roger Waters] Got to admit that I'm a little bit confused Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off This creeping malaise If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze? Deaf, dumb and blind, you just keep on pretending That everyone's expendable and no one has a real friend And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner Everything's done under the sun, but you believe at heart everyone's a killer [Instrumental: 13:25-15:18] [Outro: Roger Waters] Who was born in a house full of pain? Who was trained not to spit in the fan? Who was told what to do by the man? Who was broken by trained personnel? Who was fitted with collar and chain? Who was given a pat on the back? Who was breaking away from the pack? (Breaking away) Who was only a stranger at home? (Only a stranger) Who was ground down in the end? (Ground down) Who was found dead on the phone? (Found dead) Who was dragged down by the stone? Who was dragged down by the stone?
