Summer ride on the beach
Howl at the day
I've been hiding out so long
I gotta find another way

Late at night I wanna see you
Well my eyes, they begin to fade
Am I just living in the space between
The beauty and the pain?
And the real thing

Now the sky is painted
In a wash of indigo
I've been holding on too long
That I hardly know the score

I recognize every face
But I ain't got everything I need
If I'm just living in the space between
The beauty and the pain
It's the strangest thing

Yeah, she runs surrounding me
Surrounded by the whole
Surrounded by no other
I wanna ride it home

Yeah, like a rolling stone
Don't roll again
Yeah, like a rolling stone
Don't you roll again
I wanna roll, I wanna roll

I am getting a very strong odor of skating rinks with mirror balls from this one.
A Deeper Understanding is a great album and has some terrific songs on it but I am still not convinced that it is better than Lost in The Dream put out in 2014.

Comments?

Don't try to figure it out.  Just about every song in the playlist has a "sounds like/rip-off of Pink Floyd" remark somewhere in its comments.  I guess one hears what they're listening for.

 
So true!

What you are hearing is purely Bills genius of finding bridges where no bridges existed before.
OK, starting to get a little tired of hearing this band every day. Like 'em but I don't want to get burned out by the overplay.
Being played a lot these days.
Like it but might get fed up with if too much of it

Odd. Your comment reminds me of something that Roger Waters might have said...

What is up with this boring band being played SO much??? Thank you PSD button. I swear they're played 3+ times per day.

An "odor" of Pink Floyd?  Not perfume, and no scent either.  Nope. This is more of a ballad than anything Waters and/or Gilmour created. That channel of yours may need some dredging.

Pink Floyd?!? Maybe because it just followed a PF song? It reminds me of Jackson Browne.  icckk

 
It was "Eyes to the Wind" off the last album, Lost in the Dream, that had a Jackson Browne vibe. Not that that's a bad thing.

Glad to hear this one on RP. think this is my favorite off the album (so far...)

I was so looking forward to the release of this album based on the great early release tracks (Thinking of a Place-10; Hold on-9) and while I was slightly disappointed that the entire album wasn't a 10, I do like how all the tracks seem to fit together and with great production.

This track gets a 7 (for now) and the entire album is at an 8+.

Long Live RP!!
