Morale...
original version (Treatment) as performed 22 June 1979, The Marquee, London:
Don't talk
Close the door
You've been here before
Your shape dim
I'm an old man now
The air's thin
The walls very damp now
And if I don't go, I'll always be stuck here in this poor little room
With a view of the corner
I don't forget, though I've grown weak now
Experience is useless unless you can learn
And I've never met anyone who used their knowledge
To avoid those mistakes made again and again
And if I don't go, I'll always be stuck here with a view of the corner
album version:
Don't talk
Close the door
You've been here before
Your shape dim
I'm an old man now
The air's thin
The walls very damp now
And if I don't go, I'll always be stuck here in this poor little room
With a view of the corner
I don't forget, though I've grown weak now
Experience is useless unless you can learn
And I've never met anyone who used their knowledge
To avoid those mistakes made again and again
And if I don't go, I'll always be stuck here in this poor little room
With a view of the corner
