Isn't this where we came in?
Pink Floyd - Outside The Wall/In The Flesh?

Rush - Natural Science

1. Tide Pools

When the ebbing tide retreats
Along the rocky shoreline,
It leaves a trail of tidal pools
In a short-lived galaxy
Each microcosmic planet
A complete society

A simple kind mirror
To reflect upon our own
All the busy little creatures
Chasing out their destinies
Living in their pools,
They soon forget about the sea


Wheels within wheels in a spiral array,
A pattern so grand and complex
Time after time we lose sight of the way,
Our causes can't see their effects

Wheels within wheels in a spiral array,
A pattern so grand and complex
Time after time we lose sight of the way,
Our causes can't see their effects


2. Hyerspace

A quantum leap forward
In time and in space,
The universe learned to expand

Myths and the magic
Triumphant and tragic
A mechanized world out of hand

Computerized clinic
For superior cynics
Who dance to a synthetic band

In their own image
Their world is fashion
No wonder they don't understand

Wheels within wheels in a spiral array,
A pattern so grand and complex
Time after time we lose sight of the way,
Our causes can't see their effects


3. Permanent Waves

Science, like nature
Must also be tamed
With a view toward its preservation
Given the same
State of integrity,
It will surely serve us well

Art as expression
Not as market campaigns
Will still capture our imaginations
Given the same
State of integrity,
It will surely help us along

The most endangered species
The honest man
Will still survive annihilation
Forming a world
State of integrity,
Sensitive, open and strong


Wave after wave will flow with the tide, and bury the world as it does
Tide after tide will flow and recede, leaving life to go on as it was.
