Louder Than Words

We bitch and we fight,
Diss each other on sight,
But this thing we do
These times together
Rain or shine or stormy weather
This thing we do

With world weary grace
We've taken our places
We can curse it or nurse it and give it a name
Or stay home by the fire,
Felled by desire,
Stoking the flame
But we're here for the ride

It's louder than words
This thing that we do
Louder than words
The way it unfurls

It's louder than words
The sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts
Is louder than words
Louder than words

The strings bend and slide
As the hours glide by
An old pair of shoes
Your favorite blues
Gonna tap out the rhythm
Let's go with the flow wherever it goes
We're more than alive

It's louder than words
This thing that we do
Louder than words
The way it unfurls

It's louder than words
The sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts
Is louder than words
Louder than words

It's louder than words
This thing they call soul
Is there with a pulse
Louder than words
Louder than words

Still can hardly believe that there is a "new" PF album in 2014. Harder to believe that they use the words "bitch" and "diss" in a song. Just gives another reason for poor Syd to start spinning again.

I had a similar thought at first, but the more I thought about it I think it is appropriate. Syd spoke in tongue of the day (albeit a very psychedelic one) and PF has done nothing but take chances throughout their career.

The shocking use of commoner's tongue obscures the frighteningly bare (for typically removed Floyd) emotional layer to the lyrical content of 'Louder Than Words'. I posted it on the Twitter, but it might be worth mentioning that I wrote a sort of analysis of The Endless River on a domain name MissMonkay bought for me as a location to put music thoughts. I love her so.

@donny I entered from the fire escape.

I thought I locked the fire escape.
