|Is There Anybody Out There?|
Song Name: Nobody Home
Artist: Pink Floyd
Run Time: 3:26
Track Number: 16
Sung By: Roger Waters
Written By: Roger Waters
- In this song, Pink describes his lonely life behind his wall. He has no one talk to, and all he has are his possessions. It describes what Roger Waters went through during the 1977 tour, the band's first major stadium tour. Also, the song has some references to Syd Barrett. This was the last song written for The Wall album.
- The song also has some references to Pink's broken relationship with his adulterous wife. It is played in a manner that is reminiscent of a piano player in a bar.
- The line, "Surprise! Surprise, Surprise!" from Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. is used.
- A lot of the song describes Syd Barrett's general state during 1967, and in the documentary "Behind The Wall", David Gilmour states that it describes the state of mind of many rockstars on tour. However, these lyrics; I got nicotine stains on my fingers. I got a silver spoon on a chain. Got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains. are said to be written specifically about Richard Wright, who was going through cocaine addiction at the time.
