Wish You Were Here
So, so you think you can tell,
Heaven from hell, blue sky from pain.
Can you tell a green field, from a cold steel rail,
A smile from a veil,
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghost, hot ashes for trees,
Hot air for a cool breeze,
Cold comfort for change,
Did you exchange a walk on part in a war
For a lead role in a cage?
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.
