I am not a huge Pink Floyd fan, but I just love Brain Damage. 

"Brain Damage"

The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path
The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
 

"I can't think of anything to say except...
I think it's marvelous! HaHaHa!" 

 

Edit: The page I got the lyrics from ^ wrote that, but it is pretty marvelous. lol Also with me not being a much of a Pink Floyd fan I didn't know there were two different songs that are played together, sort of like SPLHB and WALHFM getting played together. I just use to it all playing together. a-hard-days-night-paul-4 So, I will add Eclipse lyrics: 

 

All that you touch and all that you see
all that you taste, all you feel
and all that you love and all that you hate
all you distrust, all you save
and all that you give and all that you deal
and all that you buy, beg, borrow or steal
and all you create and all you destroy
and all that you do and all that you say
and all that you eat and everyone you meet
and all that you slight and everyone you fight
and all that is now and all that is gone
and all that's to come and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon

Yeah, it is marvellous. I love that song. I love that album, actually. One of my favourites. :D

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Such a lovely day to carry on your shoulders
It turned from blue to grey and you seem so much older
But its worth all the money in the world to find a way back to normal
If there’s such a place

The doctor called your name and things became so sober
I suppose the price we’ll pay will be worth it when it’s over
But it takes every effort to believe in the unseen when you see clearly
That thing’s are not okay

Well I know you are frightened, and I know you are angry
And I know you tired of the unknown
But I am beside you, and I will remind you
That you don’t have to go it alone

Seems a tailor made sickness for your sins dear
If you planned your life away we never would be standing here
But with an impending bitter end
You have learned the lesson how
The sweet is in the now

Well I know you are frightened, and I know you are angry
And I know you tired of the unknown
But I am beside you, and I will remind you
That you don’t have to go it alone
Alone, Alone, We are not alone, Alone, Alone, Never, Not alone

There are no guarantees, no promise they can make us
Our faith’s a fighting seed planted deep in desperate trust
I will take every moment I can get
And won’t regret I share your name
To Love is worth the pain

Back To Normal

Don’t make your love suffer insecurities, trade the baggage of self to set another one free. ('Paper Skin' - Kendall Payne)

Neat thread! Does Sir Paul's "Here Today" count as non-Beatle lyrics? Because that's probably my all-round favourite lyric. 

Here (Today) they are: 

And if I said I really knew you well, what would you answer me?
If you were here today, ooo, here today. 
Knowing you, you'd prob'ly laugh and say that we were worlds apart,
If you were here today, ooo, here today.
But as for me, I still remember how it was before,
And I am holding back the tears, now, oh.
I love you, ooo.
What about the time we met,
When I suppose that you could say that we were playing hard to get?
Didn't understand a thing,
But we could always sing.
What about the night we cried,
Because there wasn't any reason left to keep it all inside?
Never understood a word,
But you were always there with a smile.
And if I said I really loved you and was glad you came along,
If you were here today, ooo, here today,
For you were in my song.
Ooo, here today.

PennyLane said

Speaking of CSN (and sometimes Y)

 

We are stardust, we are golden, 
We are billion year old carbon, 
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden. 
By the time we got to Woodstock, 
We were half a million strong 
And everywhere was a song and a celebration. 
And I dreamed I saw the bomber death planes 
Riding shotgun in the sky, 
Turning into butterflies 
Above our nation.

-Woodstock

There's an irony to this, it was actually written by Joni Mitchell, who could only watch televised snippets of the festival itself. and yet wrote something so powerful that it summed up the whole motive for it. And speaking of Joni, here is a lyric from Song to a Seagull, Marcie. Rips my heart out every time I hear it (which is carefully not often):

Marcie in a coat of flowers
Steps inside a candy store
Reds are sweet and greens are sour
Still no letter at her door
So she'll wash her flower curtains
Hang them in the wind to dry
Dust her tables with his shirt and
Wave another day goodbye

Marcie's faucet needs a plumber
Marcie's sorrow needs a man
Red is autumn green is summer
Greens are turning and the sand
All along the ocean beaches
Stares up empty at the sky
Marcie buys a bag of peaches
Stops a postman passing by
And summer goes
Falls to the sidewalk like string and brown paper
Winter blows
Up from the river there's no one to take her
To the sea

Marcie dresses warm its snowing
Takes a yellow cab uptown
Red is stop and green's for going
Sees a show and rides back down
Down along the Hudson River
Past the shipyards in the cold
Still no letter's been delivered
Still the winter days unfold
Like magazines
Fading in dusty grey attics and cellars
Make a dream
Dream back to summer and hear how
he tells her
Wait for me

Marcie leaves and doesn't tell us
Where or why she moved away
Red is angry green is jealous
That was all she had to say
Someone thought they saw her Sunday
Window shopping in the rain
Someone heard she bought a one-way ticket
And went west again

"So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say."

~Time by Pink Floyd

 

"The lunatic is in the hall.
The lunatics are in my hall.
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more.

And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

The lunatic is in my head.
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane.
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me."

~Brain Damage by Pink Floyd

 

"All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon."

~Eclipse by Pink Floyd
