[Song about time]
Track 4 from the 1973 album ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ and the only song on the album credited to all four members of the band (although the lyrics were written by Roger Waters). The song is about how time can slip by, but many people do not realise it until it is too late. Roger Waters got the idea when he realised he was no longer preparing for anything in life, but was right in the middle of it. It’s noted for its long introductory passage of clocks chiming and alarms ringing, recorded as a quadrophonic test by Alan Parsons but actually not specifically for the album.
