Folks

I'm hoping this has been asked before and that the answer is easy...

Has anyone already sorted all the various Lyrics for 'Gotta Be Crazy' and 'Raving And Drooling' in a downloadable format, or placed 'em all on a web-page or something??


And.....

The Line about 'Wore Out Your Welcome With Random Precision' in Shine On You Crazy Diamond'. Does that refer to the 'Have You Got It Yet?' session with Syd? You know the story!!


TTFN, Novak :)

Gotta Be Crazy:

"You gotta be crazy, you gotta be mean
You gotta keep your kids and your car clean
You gotta keep climbing, you gotta keep fit
You gotta keep smiling, you gotta eat shit

You gotta be small to be a big shot
You gotta eat meat to stay at the top
You gotta be trusted, gotta tell lies
You gotta be able to narrow your eyes

You gotta beleive they've gotta beleive you
You gotta appear easy to see through
Gotta be sure you look good on the TV
Gotta resemble a human being

You gotta keep one eye over your shoulder
Gonna get harder as you get older
Gotta fly south and hide in the sand
Gotta forget that you're gonna get cancer

And when you loose control
You'll reap the harvest you have sown
And as the fear grows
The bad blood slows and turns to stone

And it's too late to loose the weight
You used to need to throw around
So have a good drown
As you go down
Alone
Dragged down by the stone

Gotta be sure, you gotta be quick
Gotta divide the tame from the sick
Gotta keep some of us docile and fit
You gotta keep everyone burying this shit

You gotta get you started early
Processed by the time you're thirty
Work like **** 'till you're sixty five
And then your time's your own until you die

I gotta admit to a lot of confusion
Pain in the head is the child of collusion
Gotta resist the creeping malaise
You gotta beleive in the way you get out of the maze

But you, you just keep on pretending
You can tell a sucker from a friend
But you still raise the knife to
Stranger, lover, friend and foe alike

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was sent out to play on his own
Who was raised on a diet of shame
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personnel
Who was fitted with bridle and bit
Who was given a seat in the stand
Who was forcing his way to the rails
Who was offered a place on the board
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was ground down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone"

From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/raving-and-drooling-live-lyrics-pink-floyd.html

Raving and Drooling:

"Raving and drooling
I fell on his neck with a scream
He had a whole lotta
Terminal shock in his eyes
That's what you get
For pretending the rest are not real

Babbling and snapping
At far away flies
He will zig zag his way back
Through memories of boredom and pain

How does it feel
To be empty and angry and spaced?
Split up the middle
Between the illusion of safety in numbers
And the fist in your face"

There you go.

Thanks for posting those. Bleak and vicious stuff indeed...

It's just that these lyrics evolved over performances, so was wondering if the lot had been documented in some way.

Thanks for those OP, though, as they are different from the ones I already had :) Which are again different to some of the recordings I have (I think :))


Cheers, Novak

Pretty much the bleakest (and on point) stuff he's ever written. I wonder how Floyd would be viewed if these lyrics had made it on vinyl.

I'm sure the lyrics were written on the rear of the British Winter Tour vinyl boot, if thats any use. I guess you know that anyway but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

Peace,
Olly.
