What Other Floydians Are Saying - "The Show Must Go On"

Daniel Brod -- "I think the part that says 'Ooooh, Ma, Ooooh, Pa / Must the show go on? / Ooooh, Pa. Take me Home' relates heavily to suicide. 'Must the show go on?' is fairly obvious, since 'the show' has been a metaphor for life throughout the movie. However, when Pink says 'Take me home', he is asking his father to take him home *with him*, that is, to take Pink wherever it is he (the father) has gone, in other words, death (or any possible redemption or alternate reality, like heaven, that would be found afterwards)."
