Just a Thought.....

Courtesy of Pink Floyd......

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?


From 1975, no less.
Wonder if they had a "vision".....

  2. Ummmmmm.....OK!

    Seriously, even though I have all their albums, The series starting with "Dark Side of the Moon", and ending with "The Wall" are my favorites.

    Maybe I'm just reading too much into what's happened to Great Britain, and what the 0bamanation is trying his damnedest to do here.

    Reading all the blogs I do about people being brainwashed, how "American Idol" (BLECH!) gives us new "heroes", and all the other manufactured CRAP the mainstream media tries to force down our throats, is making me wonder if "The Average Slob" would really care if my beloved country were to disappear.

    Or maybe I've finally turned into Ye Olde Farte........

  3. I have reflected on that lyric with irony for pretty much the whole of my adulthood, and with sadly increasing frequency in recent years.

  4. Until I went in search of the lyrics, I always thought he said "For a LEAN BONE and a cage".
    Makes sense either way, I guess.....
