Previously unreleased tracks:

As you can hear on the demos, The Wall changed a lot during the creation process. The following two tracks are particulary different.

Teacher Teacher

Pink Floyd 1979
Music and lyrics: Waters

Album releases:
The Wall - Experience Edition
The Wall - Immersion Edition

Interesting song which only exists as a demo from the creation of the Wall. The demo was finally released on the Experience/Immersion edition sets. The song was later rewritten and recorded as The Hero's Return for The Final Cut.

Schoolboy, schoolboy, did you hear what I said?
How am I supposed to make you see the light?
It's hard enough to sleepwalk through the day
Without some creepy little boy like you

Bombarding my lonely shell
Glimpses of half-open doors
Gleams in the night that I might well have followed myself

Teacher, teacher, you might as well be dead
All those years you tried to suck my brain away
It was hard enough to drag myself from bed
Without some crazy lunatic like you

Bombarding my still softshell
Sticks and stones that you found lying around
In the pile of unspeakable feelings, you found

When you turn back the stone
Turned over the stone
Of your own disappointment
Back home


It's Never Too Late

Pink Floyd 1979
Music and lyrics: Waters

Album releases:
The Wall - Experience Edition
The Wall - Immersion Edition

The song only exists as an unfinished demo, but you can recognise parts which must have turned into The Show Must Go On and Outside the Wall.

Oh, it's not easy
Oh, it's not easy
