An Unlikely Psalm

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green he leadeth me the silent waters by
With bright knives he releaseth my soul
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
He converteth me to lamb cutlets
For lo, he hath great power, and great hunger
When cometh the day we lowly ones
Through quiet reflection and great dedication
Master the art of karate
Lo, we shall rise up
And then we'll make the bugger's eyes water

--Pink Floyd, "Sheep" (Animals)
It's always nice to discover something new in one of your favorite albums.

Ah, my favorite album!!!
There are less than a handfull of albums I can put on repeat and listen to over and over. I once drove the whole 16 hours from Western Mass to Milwaukee with Animals on 'forever', with only a few breaks for some random radio near the big cities.
