Artist/Band: Pink Floyd
Lyrics for Song: The Post War Dream
Lyrics for Album: The Final Cut [1983]



[Car sound, switching on of car radio]

"...announced plans to build a nuclear fallout shelter at Peterborough

in Cambridgeshire..."

[phzzt! of returning]

"...three high court judges have cleared the way..."

[phzzt!]

"...It was announced today, that the replacement for the Atlantic

Conveyor the container ship lost in the Falklands conflict would be

built in Japan, a spokesman for..."

[phzzt!]

"...moving in. They say the third world countries, like Bolivia, which

produce the drug are suffering from rising violence...[fades]"



Tell me true, tell me why, was Jesus crucified

Is it for this that Daddy died?

Was it for you? Was it me?

Did I watch too much T.V.?

Is that a hint of accusation in your eyes?

If it wasn't for the nips

Being so good at building ships

The yards would still be open on the clyde.

And it can't be much fun for them

Beneath the rising sun

With all their kids committing suicide.

What have we done, Maggie what have we done?

What have we done to England?

Should we shout, should we scream

"What happened to the post war dream?"

Oh Maggie, Maggie what have we done?
