Outside the Wall (Wall film)

Outside the Wall 4:04
     (written by Roger Waters)

(See Outside the Wall from the Wall album. The lyrics are identical, with the addition of:)
When they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall
After all it's not easy

Another song entirely re-recorded for the film. Roger sings the melody line (as opposed to the album, in which he speaks, with background vocals), with an extended instrumental so the song covers the entire credits, with a short lyrical reprise at the end.

The denouement of the film depicts the rubble left after the explosion of the wall as a metaphor for the aftermath of the devastation caused by one human being's personal hell. And, of course, it is left to the children to clean up. One small boy dismantles a Molotov cocktail, in naive disgust at the smell, and the film ends.
