The Division Bell - Pink Floyd

The Division Bell
             

( High Hopes)

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
              , ,
In a world of magnets and miracles
              ,
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
              , ,
The ringing of the division bell had begun
              .

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
              ,
Do they still meet there by the Cut
              ...

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
              - ,
Running before times took our dreams away
             
              ,

Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
              , ' ,
To a life consumed by slow decay
              , .

The grass was greener
              ,
The light was brighter
              ,
When friends surrounded
              ,
The nights of wonder
              , .

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
            
             ,

To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
             , ,
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
             ,
             ,

Dragged by the force of some inner tide
             .
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
             -
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world
             ,
             ...

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
            
             ,

There's a hunger still unsatisfied
             , .
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
             ,
Though down this road we've been so many times
             ...

The grass was greener
            ,
The light was brighter
            ,
The taste was sweeter
            ,
The nights of wonder
            , ,
With friends surrounded
            , ...
The dawn mist glowing
            ,
The water flowing
            ,
The endless river
            ...
