If you Google the lyrics for "One of These Days" the internet will laugh at you. Because "One of These Days" has exactly one lyric: "One of these days I'm going to cut you into little pieces." The rest of the song is built like an A-frame around it: everything before rises out of an brooding, windswept instrumental, featuring dueling bass guitars that climb toward something menacing; everything after is a beautiful beat-down of falling and fading.
One lyric. And the reason I've listened to it (along with "Careful with That Axe, Eugene", "Echoes", "Atom Heart Mother", "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "The Great Gig in the Sky" and all the rest) nine million times has everything to do with the unique alchemy of musicianship and unabashed monumentalism that Richard Wright brought to Pink Floyd.
