This is the Pink Floyd “Wish You Were Here,” not the Incubus “Wish You Were Here.” Incidentally, this is the version performed by Limp Bizkit with the Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik for the post-9/11 “Tribute to Heroes” telethon.

“Wish You Were Here”

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

So, do you think we can change
Everybody that hates
Before it’s too late?
So proud to be free,
But who can we blame?
Don’t be ashamed,
Do you think we can change?

How I wish,
How I wish you were here
We’re a world of lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year.
Running over the same old ground,
What have we found?
The same old fears,
Wish you were here.

We don’t need,
Need any more pain
We just need to remain on the very same page,
So much to gain.
No more losing a friend,
We’re losing ourselves.
We just need your help,
So glad you’re here.
