Bring the Boys back Home…

One of my Helium articles, mainly written in support of my Fish Delusions article here on my blog; dealing with Pink Floyd’s the Wall and how it could possibly mirror a condition of the human mind.

Bring The Boys back Home, from the Wall, is one of my favorite allegories from the LP, in that it is so deep and so subtle that no one picks up on it’s implication, everyone focuses on it’s outward war theme instead.

The “boy” is the natural child suppressed in the Pink character, but because of his schizophrenia there are actually two boys, one for each “side” of Pink’s personality. The hammer is actually two conflicting ego states, each with a child attached. Pink is calling them back, because the wall to suppress them isn’t working.
It’s pure genius…
