If I had been God
I would have rearranged the veins in the face to make them more
Resistant to alcohol and less prone to ageing
If I had been God
I would have sired many sons and I would not have suffered
The Romans to kill even one of them
If I had been God
With my staff and my rod
If I had been given the nod
I believe I could have done a better job
If I were a drone
Patrolling foreign skies
With my electronic eyes for guidance
And the element of surprise
I would be afraid to find someone home
Maybe a woman at a stove
Baking bread, making rice, or just boiling down some bones
If I were a drone
The temple's in ruins
The bankers get fat
The buffalo's gone
And the mountain top's flat
The trout in the streams are all hermaphrodites
You lean to the left but you walk to the right
And it feels like déjà vu
The sun goes down and I'm still missing you
Counting the cost of love that got lost
And under my Gulf Stream, in circular balls
There's ninety-nine cents worth of drunkards and fools

It's very much Pink Floyd: The Wall. :)

Dark Side of the Moon is the only Pink Floyd album I ever really listened to, and managed to fry many speaker voice coils during the process :( while drunk ;D. The drunker you get the deafer you become ;).

Well, I strongly recommend The Wall, then.  It'll be worth frying another set of speakers! 
You don't even need to be drunk.  But it's best if you listen to it as one, not just 'songs' off it, IMO.

I agree, you have to listen to it from start to finish to get the story

Thumbs up mate!

Btw if you don't want to buy CDs but like to listen into various music - with reasonable quality - I can recommend Tidal. 
They've got proper hifi quality going (uncompressed stream), and a pretty wide variety.   

Costs about as much as a CD per month, which isn't that much, IMO.

For me it was great as my CD collection stayed behind, and I could find most of it on Tidal - and more.

Thanks for the streaming site Bird, but I don't really listen to that much music anymore :'(. I still have my CD collection and have xferred a lot of it to USB sticks to listen to in the car but that is about it. I am very much old school and still have my Connoisseur turntable with Grace G707 tonearm from the 70s, which I still use on the odd occasion.

I applaud that.  I'm just a lazy old fart and I can't be bothered; otherwise I'd certainly rebuild my black disk collection, too :)
