Album: The WallReleased: 1979
Roger Waters explained to Mojo magazine December 2009 why this is a core song on The Wall: "The loss of a father is the central prop upon which the whole thing stands. As the tears go by, children lose their fathers again and again, for nothing. You see it now with all of these fathers, good men and true, who lost their lives and limbs in Iraq for no reason at all."
