The final cut Lyrics

Artist: Pink Floyd
Album: The final cut

Through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes
I can barely define the shape of this moment in time
And far from flying high in clear blue skies
I'm spiraling down to the hole in the ground where I hide.

If you negotiate the minefield in the drive
And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes
And if you make it past the shotgun in the hall,
Dial the combination, open the priesthole
And if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall.

There's a kid who had a big hallucination
Making love to girls in magazines.
He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith.
Could anybody love him
Or is it just a crazy dream?

And if I show you my dark side
Will you still hold me tonight?
And if I open my heart to you
And show you my weak side
What would you do?
Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone?
Would you take the children away
And leave me alone?
And smile in reassurance
As you whisper down the phone?
Would you send me packing?
Or would you take me home?

Thought I oughta bare my naked feelings,
Thought I oughta tear the curtain down.
I held the blade in trembling hands
Prepared to make it but just then the phone rang
I never had the nerve to make the final cut.

"Hello? Listen, I think I've got it. Okay, listen its a HaHa!"

this album (this song and the gunner's final dream in particular) is absolutely fantastic. the lyrics are profound and worth pondering, while the melodies and harmonies show the full depth of human melancholy. naturally, pink floyd doing what they do best.

why do you ask me why I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH? because I love everything about the band that made THIS SONG also known as pink floyd. I can name EVERY ALBUM BY PINK FLOYD. fun fact: did you know that in 1973, when they made their MOST POPULAR ALBUM called the dark side of the moon, they where the most popular band on earth at that point. with elvis pressley at the 2nd most popular band on earth with the beatles as 3rd, rolling stones as 4th and michael jackson at 5th. pink floyd is the most psychedelic band on earth since the 1960's and still has that place in 2020. with all the band members (roger waters, nick mason, richard wright, bob klose, david gilmour, polly samson, bob ezrin and, syd barrett) in this band, this band is what I call one of the most successful bands on earth
