Dogs - Pink Floyd


You gotta be crazy,
You gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes,
And when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat
With your eyes closed
And then moving in silently,
Down wind and out of sight
You got to strike when the moment is right
Without thinking.

And after a while,
You can work on points for style
Like the club tie,
And a firm hand shake
A certain look in the eye,
And an easy smile
You have to be trusted
By the people that you lie to
So that when they turn their backs on you
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

You gotta keep one eye
Looking over your shoulder
You know it's going to get harder,
And harder, and harder as you get older
Yeah, and in the end you'll pack up and
Fly down south
Hide your head in the sand
Just another sad old man all alone
And dying of cancer.

And when you loose control,
You'll reap the harvest you've sown
And as the fear grows,
The bad blood sours and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight
You used to need to throw around
So have a good drown,
As you go down all alone
Dragged down by the stone.

I gotta admit
That I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me
As if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, and try and shake off
This creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground,
How can I find my way out of this maze?

Deaf, dumb, and blind,
You just keep on pretending
That everyone's expendable
And no-one has a real friend
And it seems to you the thing to do
Would be to isolate the winner
And everything's done under the sun
But you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

Who was born in a house full of pain
Who was trained not to spit in the fan
Who was told what to do by the man
Who was broken by trained personel
Who was fitted with colar and chain
Who was given a pat on the back
Who was breaking away from the pack
Who was only a stranger at home
Who was found down in the end
Who was found dead on the phone
Who was dragged down by the stone

Who was dragged down by the stone
