"A Great Day For Freedom 2022" lyrics - PINK FLOYD

"A Great Day For Freedom 2022"

On the day the wall came down
They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high we raised a cry
For freedom had arrived
And on the day the wall came down
The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night
Paper doves in flight

[Chorus 1:]
I dreamed you had left my side
No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me
It was clear that I couldn't do a thing for you

Now life devalues day by day
As friends and neighbours turn away
And there's a change that even with regret
Cannot be undone
Now frontiers shift like desert sands
While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey

[Chorus 2:]
I woke to the sound of drums
The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you
And all but the bitter residue slipped away
Slipped away
