This is a "fun" debate. My opponent will have the burden of proving the resolution, but he can decide what is meant by it. Excluding this post, all posts on both sides must consist solely of Pink Floyd lyrics. Each lyric should be attributed by song title. Example: "Look around, choose your own ground." (Breathe)
WriterDave

Pro

Witness the man who raves at the wall.[1] I've got second sight, got amazing powers of observation.[2]

Where were you when I was burned and broken?[6] Just a brick in the wall,[7] driven on by a heart of stone.[8]

Whoa-oo-oo-oa![1]

So I open the door to my enemies . . . but they tell me to please go f**k myself? You know you just can't win.[2] In all my years of judging I have never seen before someone more deserving of the full penalty of law.[3]

Good premise... Although I'm not sure I'd do very well.

Reasons for voting decision: The statement, "Just a brick in the wall, driven on by a heart of stone." won it for me. Pro put forth a greater effort and used more songs (sources), so I am awarding him sources and arguments points based upon that. Interesting debate, young Padawan.
