Was Pink Floyd in Seattle?

Pink Floyd raised the question,
“Is there anybody out there”?
Two days on Seattle roads,
I found no green pastures anywhere.

Stalled traffic, the suits and homeless,
Red lights and sirens everywhere!
Pedestrians flowing in gray currents,
Eying buses with a zombie stare.

My biggest fantasy last night,
Was escaping from it all…
Reminiscing alone, in the extinct dark
Safe behind a concrete wall. 

How sad it was to witness,
Another grand western city fall…
Birth control, rain forests and reason phoned,
But no one took the call.
