The Trial


Lyrics: Roger Waters
Muziek: Roger Waters, Bob Ezrin
Zang: Waters

Pink stelt zich zelf op de proef – uitgevoerd door de overdreven en gepersonifieerde bakstenen – en uiteindelijk beveelt hij dat zijn muur moet worden gesloopt, als hij oordeelt dat hij zowel verantwoordelijk is voor het maken van de muur alsmede voor het opnieuw verbinden met de buitenwereld.

Terug te vinden op:

The Wall
The Wall – Live In Berlin
Shine On
Is There Anybody Out There?


Good morning worm your honour
The crown will plainly show
The Prisoner who now stand before you
was caught red handed showing feelings
Showing feelings of an almost human nature
This will not do
Call the schoolmaster

I have always said he’d come to no good
in the end, your honour
If they’d let me have my way
I could have flayed him into shape
But my hands were tied
The bleeding hearts and artists
let him get away with murder
Let me hammer him today

Crazy, toys in the attic, I am crazy
(Surely gone fishing)
They must have taken my marbles away

Call the defendant’s wife
You little shit, you’re in it now
I hope they throw away the key
You should have talked to me more often than you did
but no! You had to go your own way
Have you broken any homes up lately?
Just five minutes Worm your honour
Him and me alone

Come to mother baby let me hold you in my arms
M’lud I never wanted him to get in any trouble
Why’d he ever have to leave me
Worm your honour let me take him home

Crazy, over the rainbow, I am crazy
Bars in the window
There must have been a door there in the wall
when I came in
Crazy, over the rainbow, he is crazy

The evidence before the court is incontrovertible
There’s no need for the jury to retire
In all my years of judging
I have never heard before
of someone more deserving
the full penalty of law
The way you made them suffer
Your exquisite wife and mother
fills me with the urge to defecate
Since, my friend you have revealed
your deepest fear
I sentence you to be exposed
before you peers
Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall
