Us and Them
Geschrieben wurde Us and Them von Richard Wright und Roger Waters
HuHuh! I was in the right!
Yes, absolutely in the right!
I certainly was in the right!
gesprochen von Floyds früherem Road Manager Peter 'Puddy' Watts

You was definitely in the right.
That geezer was cruising for a bruising! Yeah!
gesprochen von Peter 'Puddy' Watts Frau

Why does anyone do anything?

I don't know, I was really drunk at the time!
I was just telling him, he couldn't get into number 2.
He was asking why he wasn't coming up on freely,
after I was yelling and screaming and telling him why he wasn't coming up on freely.
It came as a heavy blow, but we sorted the matter out
gesprochen von Henry McCullough, Gitarrist der "Wings"

Us and Them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, and the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it's only round and round and round
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside

"I mean, they're not gunna kill ya,
so if you give'em a quick short, sharp, shock, they won't do it again.
Dig it? I mean he get off lightly, 'cos I would 've given him a thrashing -
I only hit him once! It was only a difference of opinion, but really...
I mean good manners don't cost nothing do they, eh?"
gesprochen vom Pink Floyd Roadie Roger "The Hat" Manifold

Down and Out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny that's what the fightings all about
Get out of the way, it's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

Unter dem Arbeitstitel "The Violence Sequence" wurde dieses Stück bereits für Antonioni's 1970 veröffentlichten Film "Zabriskie Point" ausgearbeitet, wurde jedoch letztendlich nicht im Film verwendet.

Die erste Strophe bezieht sich auf den Krieg - speziell an vorderster Front - , die zweite Strophe handelt von Rasissmus und Vorurteilen und die letzte Strophe handelt von der meist nicht vorhandener Hilfsbereitschaft.

Track sheet: Bass, drums, fuzz bass, piano, organ, extra piano middle 8, original guitar, sax, vocal, girls.

Recording began: June 1, 1972.
