"Perfect Sense, Part II" as written by and Roger Waters....
Can't you see
It all makes perfect sense
Expressed in dollars and cents
Pounds shillings and pence
Can't you see
It all makes perfect sense
Little black soul departs in perfect focus
Prime time fodder for the News at Nine
Darling is the child warm in the bed tonight
Hi everybody I'm Marv Albert
And welcome to our telecast
Coming to you live from Memorial Stadium
It's a beautiful day
And today we except a sensational matchup
Bur first our global anthem
Can't you see
It all makes perfect sense
Expressed in dollars and cents
Pounds shillings and pence
Can't you see
It all makes perfect sense
And here come the players
As I speak to you now the captain
Has he cross hairs zeroed on the oil rig
It looks to me like he's going to attack
By the way did you know that a submarine
Captain earns two hundred thousand dollars a year
Oh that's less tax Marv less tax
Uh thank you Emery you're welcome
Now back to the game he fires one yes
There goes two both fish are running
The rig is going into a prevent defense
Will they make it I don't think so
Can't you see
It all makes perfect sense
Expressed in dollars and cents
Pounds shillings and pence
Can't you see
It all makes perfect sense

    General CommentThe second part is focusing on propaganda used by the media to persuade people to do what goes against human logic. It's saying how these days to value something within terms of money makes sense and to value something in terms of love and loyalty makes no sense. The football-like scenario that can be heard within the song is a metaphor of how war is glamorised by the media and is leading people to support it like they would a football game.

    General CommentThis song is slightly better than its counterpart, in large part because the female singer is even worse than the lows that Waters' voice hits. The entire album would have been better off without them.

    General Commenti think the song is comparing war to a sporting event and how we glorify it and look at it with not nearly as much concern. we look at it as more of an event then a war.

    General CommentI love anythig Roger does. I love how all of his albums are conceptual and you have to think about the lyrics to find the meaning
