Pink Floyd - Zabriske Point

Zabriskie Point     30th May 1970   

“Crumbling Land”     (Waters, Gilmour, Mason, Wright)

In a while, I'll find the time to make the sunshine mine
In a smile, I saw a single eagle in the sky
Wheeling, soaring, gliding by.

On a hill, there lived a man with many shining things
Shiny pool, a shiny car, and shiny diamond rings
Wining, dining, shining king.

And the eagle flies in clear blue skies
Breathing in the clear blue air.

Back here on the ground another dealer coughs and dies
And fifty more come rolling off the Ford production line.

Then a man, appearing like a mirage on the sand
In his hand, a moving picture of the crumbling land
Screaming, dealing, movie man.

Here we go, hold your nose and see if something blows
Close your eyes, count to ten and see the sunrise rise
Climbing high into the sky.

By the golden mansion let the guardian rise
Upon the finger of the King.
Hung high, the eagle spies the glitter of a gun
And wheeling in a climbing turn he flies into the sun.
