Brain Damage - Pink Floyd

This is actually the brain of a Meth addict. That is not me, but I know this brain and it has dramatically affected my life.

(This is more me)
Brain Damage

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path

The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me ’till I’m sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There’s someone in my head but it’s not me.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon
Am I who I think I am or who they think I am or neither? I do not think I am who they see at all.

This song by Pink Floyd is so affecting ... One of my favourites - a classic. That brain is affecting too ... Makes you think don't it? (And thank your lucky stars you still have a brain that is able to ... )

I am not sure I can state that I do have a brain with any certainty,,,lol
I agree the song is affecting. Pink Floyd hold a unique place in my heart and soul. No music can instantly put me in a calm, serene place like Pink Floyd music.
