I had the pleasure of seeing Roger Waters at the San Diego Sports Arena last weekend. I hadn't seen any of the Pink Floyd crew since seeing David Gilmour and the boys at Earl's Court in London in the mid-90's.
Suffice it to say, Roger Waters is still against American fascism and imperialism, even under the Obama Hope & Change brand. A great show, all in all.
There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
