Pink Floyd Songs With the Best Lyrics

The Top Ten

1 Echoes

It's a great song, but not mainly because of the lyrics. The introspective lyrics are nice and relaxing, but there are better lyrics by Pink Floyd in my opinion. - DarkSideOfDragons

Best rock song ever, in my mind

" I am you and what I see is me ".

This song does have the best lyrics Pink Floyd ever had, DarkSideofDragons. At least in my opinion. - Heffman55
