迷牆三十年

Mother do you think they’ll drop the bomb?
Mother do you think they’ll like this song?
Mother do you think they’ll try to break my balls?
Ooooo Mother should I build the wall?
Mother should I run for president?
Mother should I trust the government?
Mother will they put me in the firing line?
Ooooo Is it just a waste of time?

Hush now baby, baby, don’t you cry.
Mother’s gonna make all your nightmares come true.
Mother’s gonna put all her fears into you.
Mother’s gonna keep you right here under her wing.
She won’t let you fly, but she might let you sing.
Mama’s gonna keep baby cozy and warm.
Ooooh babe ooooh babe oooooh babe,
Of course mama’s gonna help build the wall.

Mother do you think she’s good enough — for me?
Mother do you think she’s dangerous — to me?
Mother will she tear your little boy apart?
Ooooo Mother will she break my heart?

Hush now baby, baby don’t you cry.
Mama’s gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.
Mama won’t let anyone dirty get through.
Mama’s gonna wait up until you get in.
Mama will always find out where you’ve been.
Mama’s gonna keep baby healthy and clean.
Ooooh babe oooh babe oooh babe,
You’ll always be baby to me.

Mother, did it need to be so high?

今年二零零九年,是 Pink Floyd 唱片專輯的「The Wall」的三十年週年。
唱片中,樂隊由自身經歷訴說家庭、教育與社會對兒童成長的扭曲。當中,家長對兒子的過份溺愛,就如築起一道牆,將兒子與世隔絕。對真實世界的無知,最終其實只是害了他。
三十年後的香港,我們仍在報章新聞中,不時看到極端保守家長的行徑,與 The Wall 裏的溺愛無異。
或許趁這年,香港該搞個 The Wall 公開播放活動,喚起人們反思溺愛的禍害。
