Cymbaline (album version)

The path you tread is narrow
And the drop is sheer and very high
The ravens all are watching
From a vantage point nearby
Apprehension creeping
Like a tube train up your spine
Will the tightrope reach the end
Will the final couplet rhyme

And it’s high time Cymbaline
It’s high time Cymbaline
Please wake me

A butterfly with broken wings
Is falling by your side
The ravens all are closing in
There’s nowhere you can hide
Your manager and agent
Are both busy on the phone
Selling coloured photographs
To magazines back home

And it’s high time Cymbaline
It’s high time Cymbaline
Please wake me

The lines converging where you stand
They must have moved the picture plane
The leaves are heavy round your feet
You hear the thunder of the train
Suddenly it strikes you
That they’re moving into range
And Doctor Strange
Is always changing size

And it’s high time Cymbaline
It’s high time Cymbaline
Please wake me Pink Floyd-Cymbaline

  1. Melhor banda do mundo. Pena que nasci a dez anos senão eu ia em todos os shows se eu nasesce nos 60s:( 🙁 🙁 😟. Obs: odeio música atual: SHINE ON fans de pink floyd :

  2. I still have trouble figuring out what this song is all about…..(other than the obvious drug references):
    "The lines converging where you stand, they must have moved the picture plane"
    "The leaves are heavy round your feet, you hear the thunder of the train"
    Someone decode please?

  3. I SAW THEM PLAY THIS SONG AT THE EASTOWNE IN DETRIOT, WHEN THE ALBUM WAS JUST OUT… OBSCURED BY CLOUDS, AND MORE WERE SO OVERLOOKED… BY THE WAY, " THE LYRICS" YOU DONT UNDERSTAND? TRY SINGING THEM,&YOULL FIND-THEY WERE PICKED FOR THEIR CADANCE & NOT FOR THEIR MEANING. PF LYRICS ARE FOR THEIR MELODY NOT MEANING… (PF WILL MAKE YOU WONDER) THEIR MUSIC IS THE SOUNDTRACK TO MY LIFE!!! AR
