Pink Floyd - Lost for words

  • The song is pictured in the album sleeve next to a picture of antique boxing gloves, and within the song itself a boxing announcer is heard stating 'and the winner by knockout...' as well as a ringside bell. Both of these facts have seen suggested as evidence that former member Roger Waters, who departed in 1985, is one of the "enemies" mentioned in the lyric who told Gilmour to "please go fuck" himself.
  • It has also been suggested that the 'knockout' reference refers to the enormous commercial success the Gilmour-led Pink Floyd was receiving in comparison to Waters' solo career, with the latter playing mostly the same songs, written by him, in tiny, half-full arenas. Waters has since bitterly stated that he feels this is only due to the Pink Floyd name being a brand and that if any of his solo albums "had the name 'Pink Floyd' on it, it'd sell ten million."
