Random fact about song
The dubbed over voice of pilots talking is actually a recording of drummer Nick Mason during a flying lesson. According to his book Inside Out, both Mason and Gilmour were terrified of flying but eventually got their pilot Licenses. (thanks, Josh - Sarnia, Canada)

Learning to Fly lyrics:


Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone, my senses reeled

A fatal attraction
is holding me fast
How can I escape
this irresistible grasp?

Can't keep my eyes
From the circling sky
Tongue-tied and twisted
Just an Earth-bound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unladen, empty and turned to stone

A soul in tension
That's learning to fly
Condition grounded
But determined to try

Can't keep my eyes
From the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted
Just an Earth-bound misfit, I

(To tower): Confirm 3-8-Echo ready for departure
(Tower): Hello again, this is now 129.4
(To tower): 129.4. Its good to go
(Tower): You may commence your takeoff.
Wind's over 10 knots
(To tower): 3-8-Echo
Easy on the brakes, take it easy
It's gonna roll this time
Just hand the power gradually and it

Above the planet
On a wing and a prayer
My grubby halo
A vapour trail in the empty air

Across the clouds
I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner
Of my watering eye

A dream unthreatened
By the morning light
Could blow this soul right
Through the roof of the night

There's no sensation
To compare with this
Suspended animation
A state of bliss

Can't keep my mind
From the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted
just an Earth-bound misfit, I
