260) Pink Floyd — “If”

From ‘70’s Atom Heart Mother (see #38). Paul Matt’s writes regarding Roger Waters’s “If” that:

[I]t is a step in the direction of familiar future Waters issues, such as the madness expressed on Dark Side of the Moon. Some feel the “spaces between friends” line is a reference to the gap in the friendship of the band with Syd Barrett . . . .”

Well, at least it doesn’t feature bacon frying in the pan.

“If I were asleep, I could dream. If I were afraid, I could hide. If I go insane, please don’t put your wires in my brain. If I were the moon, I’d be cool.
If I were a rule, I would bend. If I were a good man, I’d understand the spaces between friends.”
