Raving and drooling I fell on his neck with a scream
He had a whole lotta terminal shock in his eyes
That's what you get for pretending the rest are not real

Babbling and snapping at far away flies
He will zig zag his way back through memories of boredom and pain

How does it feel to be empty and angry and spaced
Split up the middle between the illusion of safety in numbers
and the fist in your face

    General CommentThis song has been performed live several times but never released. But in 1977 the song was rewritten and retitled to Sheep when it appeared on the Animals album.
    The music, lyrics and vocals are all by Waters in this song.

    General CommentThis song was played on the DSOTM tour or just after and was about a DJ in that had pissed Roger off enough to warrant this song. Yes of course new lyrics were created and it became sheep on The ANIMALS Record
