Nightmare 6:38
     (written by Roger Waters)

(See Cymbaline. In addition, the third verse repeats, with a lyric change in the fourth line:)
You feel the thunder of the train

Lead vocals: Dave Gilmour

Nightmare had been recently recorded for the More soundtrack under the title Cymbaline. This is a significantly longer version of the original song, with an extended instrumental jam in the middle including a guitar solo from Dave and an organ solo from Rick, followed by a repetition of the third verse. The song ends with another great guitar solo.

Since the song was originally about a nightmare, it fits in perfectly with the context of The Man Suite, helped along by the recurrent phrase 'Please wake me.'
