Song Name: Goodbye Cruel World
Artist: Pink Floyd
Run Time: 1:13
Track Number: 13
Sung By: Roger Waters
Written By: Roger Waters
- The song is quiet in dynamic, and is somewhat rhythmic in nature, with a soft repeating bass guitar pulse which is believed by some fans to be a similar bass riff to the one used in "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" and "See Emily Play". Notably, the final instance of the word "goodbye" is spoken as the music's cut, causing the final "goodbye" to appear somewhat despairing, as well as identifying the listener with Pink as he cuts all ties with society.
- As with the other songs on The Wall, Goodbye Cruel World tells a portion of Pink's story, the album's protagonist. This song details Pink's reaction to the completion of his mental wall, and marks his acknowledgement of his isolation from society.
- Goodbye Cruel World has become a cliché that is used often to parody melodramatic situations, especially ones involving suicide.
