A Little Pink Floyd for a Tuesday

From their brilliant album "Animals:"

You've got to be crazy
Got to have a real need
Got to sleep on your toes when you're on the street
Got to be able to pick up easy meat
With your eyes closed -
Then moving in silently, downwind and out of sight
You've got to strike when the moment is right
Without thinking.

Then after a while
You can work on points for style
Like the club tie
And the firm handshake
The sudden look in the eye
And the easy smile
You have to be trusted
By the people that you lie to
So that when they turn their backs on you
You get the chance to put the knife in.
