Hey you, out there in the cold
Title Hey You
Artist Pink Floyd
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles, can you feel me?
Hey you, don't help them to bury the light
Don't give in, without a fight
Hey you, out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you, with your ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out, would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I'm comin' home
But it was only fantasy
The wall was too high as you can see
No matter how he tried he could not break free
And the worms ate into his brain
Hey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you're told, can ya help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall, can ya help me?
Hey you, don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall

Like most other songs on the album, "Hey You" is told from the point of view of the protagonist, Pink. Pink realises the mistake he made completely shunning society, and attempts to regain contact with the outside world. However, he cannot see or hear beyond the wall. Pink's call becomes more and more desperate as he begins to realise there is no escape. See Full Wikipedia Article
