    Pink Floyd, The Final Cut

    =======================================
    floating down through the clouds
    memories come rushing up to meet me now
    but in the space between the heavens
    and the corner of some foreign field
    i had a dream
    i had a dream

    goodbye max
    goodbye ma
    after the service when you're walking slowly to the car
    and the silver in her hair shines in the cold november air
    you hear the tolling bell and touch the silk in your lapel
    as the teardrops rise to meet the comfort of the band
    you take her frail hand
    and hold on to the dream

    a place to stay
    enough to eat
    somewhere old heroes shuffle safely through the street
    where you can speak out loud about your doubts and fears
    and what's more, no one ever disappears,
    you never hear the standard issue kicking in your door
    you can relax on both sides of the tracks
    and maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
    and everyone has recourse to the law
    and no one kills the children any more
    no one kills the children any more

    night after night
    going round and round my brain
    his dream is driving me insane
    in the corner of some foreign field
    the gunner sleeps tonight
    what's done is done
    we cannot just write off his final scene
    take heed of the dream
    take heed
    =======================================
