Pink Floyd

"Us And Them"

Us and them
And after all we're only ordinary men

Me and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do

"Forward!" he cried
From the rear
And the front rank died
And the General sat
As the lines on the map
Moved from side to side

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who?

Up and down
And in the end it's only round and round and round

"Haven't you heard
It's a battle of words?"
The poster bearer cried.
"Listen, son,"
Said the man with the gun,
"There's room for you inside."

"Well, I mean, they're gonna kill ya, so like, if you give 'em a quick sh...short, sharp shock, they don't do it again.
Dig it? I mean he got off light, 'cause I could've given 'I'm a thrashin' but I only hit him once.
It's only the difference between right and wrong innit? I mean good manners don't cost nothing, do they? Eh?"

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about

With, without
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?

Get out of the way,
It's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price
Of tea and a slice
The old man died.

Politics takes the common man , to death .

'The eternal battle of the wits'

 

Quarter wits view things from one perspective alone

while half wits see things in b/w mono chrome.

 

Three quarter wits see things in a third way

while few can see all four colours anyway.

 

Some entirely witless unfortunates

devoid of any original thoughtfulness

champion judgements made through three quarter wits cautiousness.

 

Wit less advice from three quarter wits is unfit

when it recommends promoting quarter wits to wit.

 

Soon all the halfwits appear very blue

only one shade of colour where previously there were two.
