Outside The Wall Lyrics

Outside the Wall (Waters) 1:42

All alone, or in two's,
The ones who really love you
Walk up and down outside the wall.
Some hand in hand
And some gathered together in bands.
The bleeding hearts and artists
Make their stand.

And when they've...

    I think this song does not mean that Pink's wall has come down and he is cured from his "insanity". I think it means the opposite. The judge from the previous song "The trial" PUNISHED Pink by tearing down the wall, and exposing him as he is to his fans. Then this song talk about the people outside his wall; they "make their stand" and talking about how they tried to help Pink and "gave him their all", "but it wasn't easy". So in the end I think it means Pink wasn't cured after all, and he is left with the thoughts in his head and, in a sense, rebuilding the wall. The song ends with the same sound as "In the flesh?" begins, which is the first song in the album, and a voice says: "Isn't this where... (we came in)". So pink is left with his thoughts and by doing that he prevents himself from breaking through the wall and going back to his normal life.

    I'd like to say that this is just my opinion on the interpretation of the song. Could be right could be wrong.
