Concept[change | change source]

The Wall tells the story of Pink, and alienated rock star. This song introduces Pink. It resembles the opening of a rock concert. Pink sings about how despite how he looks (in the film he appears to be a fascist dictator), he is not exactly what he seems. He says, "if ya wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes / you'll just have to claw your way through this disguise!".
