Shadow Gallery – Floydian Memories lyrics
[Special Edition Bonus Track]

[a) Pigs on the Wing - Part I]

[Mike Baker:]
If you Didn't care what happened to me
And I didn't care
For you
We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain
Wondering which of the buggers to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing

[b) Fearless]

[Mike Baker:] You say the hill's too steep to climb
[Mike Baker / Gary Wehrkamp:] Climb it
[Mike Baker:] You say you'd like to see me try
[Mike Baker / Gary Wehrkamp:] climbing
[Mike Baker:] You pick the place and I'll choose the time
[Arjen Lucassen:]
And I'll climb that hill in my own way
Just wait a while for the right day
And as I rise above the tree lines and the clouds
I look down
Hearing the sound of the things you've said today
[Mike Baker:] Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
[Mike Baker / Gary Wehrkamp:] Smiling
[Mike Baker / Arjen Lucassen:] Merciless the magistrate turned 'round
[Mike Baker / Gary Wehrkamp:] Frowning
[Gary Wehrkamp:] And who's the fool who wears the crown
[Jim Roberti:]
And go down
In your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear lines in his brow
[Gary Wehrkamp:] You look down
[Gary Wehrkamp / Mike Baker:] Hearing the sound of the faces
[Gary Wehrkamp:] In the crowd

[Mike Baker / Gary Wehrkamp:]
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls
Ooooooh aaaah
[Mike Baker:]
Mother should I build a wall
Mother do you think she's good enough?

And the sea may look warm to you babe
And the sky may look blue

[Gary Wehrkamp:] Customized license plates
[Jim Roberti / Gary Wehrkamp:] a bell that rings and
[Gary Wehrkamp:] Lots of

[Brendt Allman:] Lots of things to make it look good

[j) One in the Crowd]

[Gary Wehrkamp:]
With all their words and voices shouting
You leave it behind
'Cus you're aware
And Now surround me
Leading the Light
Dark stands before me
With Just one clue presenting
The touch
Of her hand
Off in a Dare
Well Hidden within color
Perchance I should tell her
A path Bold
And Cluttered
I'll Find a way

[n) Summer of '68]


[o) Sheep]

[Arjen Lucassen:]
Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away
Only dimmly aware of a certain unease in the air
Raving and Drooling we fell on his neck with a scream
Wave upon wave of demented avengers march
Cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream

[p) Julia Dream]

[Mike Baker:]
Julia dream, Dreamboat Queen
Queen of all my dreams
[Gary Wehrkamp:]
Sunlight bright upon my pillow
Lighter than an eiderdown
Will she let the weeping willow
Wind his branches 'round

Julia Dream, Dreamboat queen
Queen of all my dreams
Julia Dream, Dreamboat queen
Queen of all my dreams
[Gary Wehrkamp:]
Every night I Turn the light out
Waiting for the velvet bride
Will the following footsteps catch me
Am I really dying?
[Mike Baker:]
Julia Dream, Dreamboat queen
Queen of all my dreams
Julia Dream, Dreamboat queen
Queen of all my dreams
[Mike Baker:] Julia Dream, Dreamboat queen
[Mike Baker / Gary Wehrkamp:] Queen of all my dreams
[Gary Wehrkamp:] Sssssssyd

[q) Comfortably Numb]

[Guitar solo - Gary Wehrkamp]

[r) Cymbaline]

[Gary Wehrkamp:]
The path you tread is narrow
And the drop is sheer and very high
The ravens all are watching from a vantage point nearby
Apprehension creeping like a choo-train up your spine
Will the tight reach the end
[Arjen Lucassen:]
Doctor Strange is always changing size
Will the final couplet rhyme?
[Gary Wehrkamp:]
And it's high Time, Cymbaline
Yeah it's, High time, Cymbaline
Please Wake me

You know that I care
What happens to You
And I know that you care

Now that I've found somewhere safe to bury my bone
And any fool knows a dog needs a home
[Mike Baker:] A shelter
[Gary Wehrkamp:] What's it all about?
[Mike Baker:] From pigs on the wing
[Mike Baker:] Mother did it need to be so high?
