"One of the Few" as written by and Roger Waters....
When you're one of the few,
To land on your feet.
What do you do to make ends meet?
(Teach)

Make 'em mad
Make 'em sad
Make 'em add two and two

Make 'em me
Make 'em you
Make 'em do what you want them to

Make 'em laugh
Make 'em cry
Make 'em lay down and die

    General CommentHaunting Song. A little short though, but nevertheless covered by British band Anathema.

    General CommentThe Final Cut is about the Schoolmaster from The Wall. Turns out, he's a retired vet who's losing his mind a bit, but at any rate, this is the explaination of who he is and more importanly, what he's doing, and why he's doing it.

    General CommentYou can hear the guy say teach, after 'what do you do to make ends meet." And also the music is similar in chord structure to The Wall, and it all just sort of adds up.

    General CommentThis songs amazing. I love the clock in the background. And the line "make them me, make them you" and "make them lie down and die". Hypnotic..

    Song Meaningamazing minimal track, i really love this song.
    i think it's about the identity disorder in personality to makes person displays multiple distinct identities or personalities,

    "
    When you're one of the few to land on your feet
    what do you do to make ends meet?
    "

    it is introduced himself here and whispering say "teach" To tell a secret for the Treatment.

    "
    make 'em me, make 'em you, make 'em do what you want them to
    make 'em laugh, make 'em cry, make 'em lay down and die
    "

    and goes..
