Childhood’s End


Childhood’s End – Pink Floyd

You shout in your sleep,
Perhaps the price is just too steep.
Is your conscience at rest,
If once put to the test?
You awake with a start,
To just the beating of your heart.
Just one man beneath the sky,
Just two ears, just two eyes.

You set sail across the sea,
Of long past thoughts and memories
Childhood’s end, your fantasies,
Merge with harsh realities.
An’ then as the sail is hoist,
You find your eyes are growing moist.
An’ all the fears never voiced,
Say you have to make the final choice.

Who are you, and who am I,
To say we know the reason why,
Some are born, some men die,
Beneath one infinite sky.
There’ll be war, there’ll be peace.
But everything one day will cease
All the iron turned to rust,
All the proud men turned to dust.
An’ so all things time will mend,
So this song will end.
