Wish they included When the Tigers broke free on The Wall. The only songer deeper and more emotional than Mother That's how the high command took my Daddy from me!!

Hated this song as a 13 year old in 79. As I have gotten older and matured, it has become one of my favorite tracks. F'in deep.

If you have heard this song, then you have heard 'the final cut'. Basically the same.

Mother Pandora ....do you think you have my musical interests pegged?

I can't relate to the abusive nature of this song, and I'm especially glad for that. The people commenting on this song who say they can relate to it shouldn't take it so lightly, because it's a very scary thing and you really shouldn't have to connect to the lyrics on any level. That being said, this song is hauntingly beautiful, and I love it for that.
