I don't need no walls around me
And I don't need no drugs to calm me
I have seen the writing on the wall
Don't think I need anything at all
No, don't think I'll need anything at all

All in all, it was all just bricks in the wall

All in all, you were all just bricks in the wall

    General Commentthe character is convincing himself that he can live without whatever he has sought throughout his life. love, and help.
    when he says "i have seen the writings on the wall" he is saying that he knows the whole deal. the medication doesnt work, perhaps it makes the situation worse, and it seems that whoever hes loved has left him. he knows how it is. and he is denying his own need for such things. sour grapes

    General Commentno it is an emotional or pscological wall that he built to protect him self from the out side. No one is inside so he cant get burned. Pink had an horrid life. His dad dies in war, his mom is over protective, his school sucks, his wife is cheating on him, he breaks down and the raod manager has to drug him to perform, then he turns into a neo-nazi guy, finally he tries himself and he forces himself to "Tear Down The Wall".

    General CommentAt this point in the film Pink has put so many bricks into his wall of isolation, he has completed it and has effectivly alienated himself from everyone else. The phrase writing on the wall was first used in the bible and means foreseeing the future, meaning that Pink knows how screwed over he is but doesn't try to help himself, or can't helf himself.

    General CommentIts actually when Pink has built his wall up so high he can't get out (if you remember back in mother he adessed that verry concern inj "mother") and he's baisicly telling himself he can live behind the wall without any outside contact

    General CommentThis is just an idea of mine..

    In Another Brick In The Wall (part 1)
    he is in his childhood, singing about his dad , who left him and his mother, moved to another country (or died).

    Daddy's flown across the ocean
    A snap shot in the family album
    All in all it was all just a brick in the wall
    All in all it was all just bricks in the wall

    Then he sings about it just being a bring in the wall.

    In Another Brick In The Wall (part 2)

    in the end of this song, you can hear a man yelling "wrong, do it again!" the same yell is on the beginning of confortambly numb..

    he sings about his school times, perhaps he was teased in school, maybe by the teachers?
    Then again, he sings about it just being another
    brick in the wall.

    "You! Yes, you behind the bikesheds, stand still laddy!"

    Here he has done something bad, maybe it was his first drug testing or then it just might be a about him being suspected of everything

    In the end you can hear a telephone beep, either someone who has done something bad to him, is calling, or the man is calling to him.
    Either way, he is really relieved that its over.

    Another Brick In The Wall (part 3)

    Now he is grown more.
    Seems like he only told about bad things in his life and hide them somewhere..

    Now all those bad things in his life that were just a bricks, has now formed a wall, that is his life, no matter how he tries to brake em, he cant.

    Now this wall has extracted him from others around him, and again he is trying to hide his problems, by convincing himself that he really dont need anything at all.
    "Don't think I need anything at all
    No don't think I'll need anything at all "
