The Final Cut (4:53)

Cover of Oh By the Way (Studio Album Boxset)

From Oh By the Way (Studio Album Boxset) and 7 other releases

“The Final Cut” is the title track from Pink Floyd’s 1983’s album The Final Cut. It has never been performed live. The video depicts Roger Waters (with eyes blacked out, possibly referencing that this man is Pink) singing to a psychologist and utilizes old film footage of 1930s and 40s life intertwined. It contains a short guitar solo played by David Gilmour.

The orchestral motif is similar to that found on “Comfortably Numb”, which was also scored by Michael Kamen.

The lyrics contain further reference to the album “The Wall” with lines such as “And if I’m in I’ll show you what’s behind the wall.” Indeed, The Final Cut album was originally to be called “Spare Bricks”.

Through the fish eyed lens of tear stained eyes
I can barely define the shape of this moment in time
And far from flying high in clear blue skies
I'm spiralling down to the hole in the ground where I hide
