R.I.P. Syd Barrett

"Syd Barrett, founder of Pink Floyd, dies"

Remember when you were young,
you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

Now there's a look in your eyes,
like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.

"Shine On You Crazy Diamond" (Gilmour, Waters, Wright)

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.
