Well, is the pipe for what it seems to be?
Having home the babies and all the babies' grins at me
And I just wanna shine on and on and on the sky
Hey, and on the bay, on the bay, on the bay

Hey you out there, what are you?
I need you and I want you here
On the wall you'll be, on me
On me

Hey now, hey now, hey now, hey now
Hey now, hey now, hey now
The love, the love
I need you, the white hope and the low roads all are here
Whine, whine with me then
I know I can't wait another day
To find the one who went away
The one who went there at the start
The one who went away and apart
Who am I to play the part?
Who plays the part? The one who plays the part
The part, ou, part, ah, oh, yeah

    General CommentJohn to me sounds near dead on this song, but no less passionate, or no less of a genius. If anything, listening to the whole album (smile from the streets you hold) is like looking into the soul of a man who has lost it all and is ready to die, but still oozes genius.

    Song FactI see some references to Pink Floyd (or coincidence?):

    "And I just wanna shine on and on and on the sky"

    "Hey you out there want you"

    "On the wall on me, on me"
