Arjen Anthony Lucassen – Welcome to the Machine [Pink Floyd]


It’s really difficult to cover Pink Floyd well, Lucassen, I think, has nailed it.

Artist: Arjen Anthony Lucassen
Album: Lost in the New Real
Year: 2012

Lyrics:
Welcome my son
Welcome to the machine

Where have you been?
It’s alright we know where you live

You’ve been in the pipeline, filling in time
Provided with toys and ‘Scouting for Boys’

You bought a guitar to punish your ma
And you didn’t like school
And you know you’re nobody’s fool

So welcome… to the machine
So welcome… to the machine

Welcome my son
Welcome to the machine

What did you dream?
It’s alright we told you what to dream

You dreamed of a big star
He played a mean guitar

He always ate in the Steak Bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar

So welcome… to the machine
So welcome… to the machine
