Another Brick in the Wall is a three-part composition on Pink Floyd’s 1979 rock opera The Wall, written by bassist Roger Waters.
During Part 1, the protagonist, Pink, begins building a metaphorical wall around himself following the death of his father.
Part 2, a protest song against corporal punishment, and rigid and abusive schooling, features a children’s choir. Traumas involving his overprotective mother and abusive schoolteachers become bricks in the wall.
Following a violent breakdown in Part 3, Pink dismisses everyone he knows as “just bricks in the wall”.
Part 2 was released as a single, selling more than four million copies worldwide.
