..So, so you think you can tell

Heaven from Hell?

Blue skies from pain?

.

Can you tell a green field

From a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?

Your heroes for ghosts?

Hot ashes for trees?

Hot air for a cool breeze?

.

Cold comfortable change?

Did you exchange

A walk on part in the war

For a lead role in a cage? …

(Lyrics extract from Pink Floyd’s legendary song ‘Wish You Were Here‘  off their 1975 album of the same name)
