In the Flesh Lyrics - Pink Floyd
Review The Song (7)
So ya thought ya might like to go to the show.
To feel the warm thrill of confusion, that space cadet glow.
I got me some bad news for you, Sunshine.
Pink isn't well, he stayed back at the hotel,
And he sent us along as a surrugate band.
We're gonna find out where you fans really stand.
Are there any queers in the theatre tonight?
Get 'em up against the wall.'Gainst the wall!
And that one in the spotlight, he don't look right to me.
Get him up against the wall. 'Gainst the wall!
And that one looks Jewish, and that one's a coon.
Who let all this riffraff into the room?
There's one smoking a joint, and another with spots!
If I had my way I'd have all of ya shot.

When I saw this in concert it sprung me straight back into the world. I used to say I hate music, I hate guitar, wah wah wah. But when I saw this concert it flipped my world upside down. I learned how to play guitar, went back in time and bought a record player. I never realized how great music was. It's clear to me I obviously didn't look back far enough in time to the 60's and 70's.

The Wall Plotline - In the Flesh? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/20/09
This first song signifies the beginning of the show (which is being narrated by Pink himself). The stage directions are used to show that Pink is going to tell us the story of the building of The Wall. The lyrics say that despite his outward appearances, things are much different "behind these cold eyes" and that if the listener (sunshine) wants to find those things out, he'll have to "claw his way through this disguise". The song also informs the listener, although not directly, that Pink's father is killed; this is done using the sound effect of the dive-bomber, indicating his death during World War II.

k, these are the lyrics to In the Flesh? . the difference is the question mark at the end of the name of the song. there is no In the Flesh II. it is simply called In the Flesh. so yea these lyrics are for In the Flesh?, and it is not even close to the lyrics of In the Flesh
uneducated in floyd | Reviewer: j. mackin | 12/13/07
this is in the flesh, your thinking of in the flesh II with the line "i'd have all of you shot". nice to see you know your floyd
Are the lyrics messed or is it just me? | Reviewer: James | 10/17/07
These, as far as I know, aren't the right lyrics for In the Flesh. Towards the end of the lyrics, there should be some racist stuff, not this stuff about a disguise. The very last line of In the Flesh is "If I had my way, you all would get shot," or something along those lines. Someone should fix this.

These are the wrong lyrics for this song. This song is In the Flesh? not In the Flesh. Otherwise, this is one of the highlights of the Wall, an amazing song that exemplifies the time between pinks birth and the time he becomes what he hates. It and its reprise creates cohesion between the two halves of the album
