dal nuovo album 'Is This the Life We Really Want?'

Roger Waters

Nella canzone che chiude l'album, Waters confessa, quasi come in una seduta di psicoanalisi, le sue paure e le sue inquietudini che lo hanno portato alla depressione e a una visione pessimista della vita. E molte delle ragioni elencate sono le molteplici cause della sofferenza umana in questa guerra dei centomila anni, come direbbe il nostro Marco Valdo M.I., che non accenna a finire.

The part that is envious
Cold hearted and devious
Greedy, mischievous
Global, colonial
Bloodthirsty, blind
Mindless and cheap
Focused on borders
And slaughter and sheep
Burning of books
Bulldozing of homes
Given to targeted killing
With drones
Lethal injections
Arrest without trial

Monocular vision
Gangrene and slime
Unction, sarcasm
Common assault
Self-satisfied heroic killers
Lifted on high

Piracy adverts, acid attacks
On women by bullies and perverts and hacks
The rigging of ballots and the buying of power

Lies from the pulpit
Rape in the shower
Mute, indifferent
Feeling no shame

Portly, important
Leering, deranged

Sat in the corner watching TV
Deaf to the cries of children in pain

Dead to the world
Just watching the game

Watching endless repeats -
Out of sight, out of mind
Silence, indifference:
The ultimate crime

But when I met you, that part of me died

Bring me a bowl
To bathe her feet in
Bring me my final cigarette

It would be better by far to die in her arms
Than to linger
In a lifetime of regret
