"Until we Sleep" as written by and D Gilmour....
Dance, to the movement of the stars
Sing till the walls around us ring
Pray that it never fades away
Until we sleep

Feast, go ahead now, take your fill
Drink, till the room begins to sway
Play, and your cares will blow away
Until we sleep
Into a deep and dreamless sleep our spirits fall
And what we sow we cannot reap nor keep at all

Work, though the work will break your back
Rest, hope to feel your spirits rise
But the years, have cut you down to size
Now go to sleep
Into a deep and dreamless sleep our spirits fall
And what we sow we cannot reap nor keep at all

    General CommentI think the song is about trying either to live a happy and careless life or to work hard to achieve something. But in the end the death comes and what happened before no longer matters since everyone ends up in a deep and dreamless sleep.
