    PINK FLOYD – “Learning to fly”

    Into the distance a ribbon of black
    Stretched to the point of no turning back
    A flight of fancy on a windswept field
    Standing alone my senses reeled
    A fatal attraction holding me fast how
    Can I escape this irresistible grasp?

    Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
    Tongue tied and twisted Just an earth bound misfit I

    Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
    Unheeded warnings I thought I thought of everything
    No navigator to find my way home
    Unladened, empty and turned to stone

    A soul in tension that’s learning to fly
    Condition grounded but determined to try
    Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
    Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I

    Friction lock, set.
    Mixture, rich
    Propellers, fully forward
    Flaps, set, ten degrees
    Engine gauges and suction, check

    Mixture set to maximum percent, recheck
    Flight instruments
    Altimeters, check both
    (Garbled word) – on
    Navigation lights, on
    Strobes, on
    (To tower): Confirm 3-8-Echo ready for departure
    (Tower): Hello again, this is now 129.4
    (To tower): 129.4. It’s to go.
    (Tower): You may commence your takeoff, winds over 10 knots.
    (To tower): 3-8-Echo
    Easy on the brakes. Take it easy. it’s gonna roll this time.
    Just hand the power gradually, and it

    Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
    My grubby halo, a vapor trail in the empty air,
    Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
    Out of the corner of my watering eye
    A dream unthreatened by the morning light
    Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

    There’s no sensation to compare with this
    Suspended animation, A state of bliss
    Can’t keep my mind from the circling skies
    Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I
