He still appeared as a collaborator on their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets, in "Jugband Blues" ("Understanding Syd"). His sad lyrics of this song go "It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here / And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear / That I'm not here." Pink Floyd and Barrett each went on with their lives. The members of the band all feel awful about losing their best friend.

Poems, unlike lyrics, can be misunderstood and read without a sound, however lyrics normally need accompanying music to be understood in the correct way. If you lay out the lyrics of Pink Floyd 's song "Time" without the accompanying music, many questions and observations come to mind. One of which why is there no…

    People First, Rats Second Five indistinguishable figures stand in the arid, earth toned desert, draped under a single distinct tarp created from clearly improvised materials. This makeshift roof provides shade, but not shelter, from the wasteland that these assumed rodents are found in, and in the field of the red and brown earthly hues rich with clay, the landscape is broken only by stark instances of darkness conflicting with the individual, ivory tarp that contributes the bulk of the framed…
