    Perfection. This song perfectly describes our society right now and what have we done and what's happening to us. A perfect summary of Neil Postman's "Amusing Ourselves to Death" (Specifically the last chapter). The lyrics are godlike. "They repeated every test/They checked out all the data on their lists/And then the alien anthropologists/Admitted they were still perplexed/But on eliminating every other reason/For our sad demise/They logged the only explanation left/This species has amused itself to death" just wow. Roger Waters is the best lyricist alive in my opinion

    The entire album is a gem, has the power to touch the fibers of the soul, is perhaps the only artist to sing in English that has this effect on me ..

    For the comment down a little bit: You have to listen to the Ballad of Bill Hubbard (the first song on the album) to know what he is talking about.
