Wall, The (Pink Floyd) Easter Egg - Where We Came In

This is an easter egg that is split between two
songs on the same double album.
Listen very close to the very beginning of
the first song on "The Wall"
album and to the very end of the last song
on the last album of the same set.
In other words the begining of side 1 and the end
of side 4.
Just before the intro music you'll hear the faint
words "...where we came in?"
Then listen to the end of side 4.
The same music is playing and the last thing
you hear is the faint words "Isn't this..."
Put the two together and the message is:
"Isn't this where we came in?"
This ties the end of the album back to the beginning with an easter egg.
This was pointed out to me by a friend.

speculation from web sites i've been at says that this is another lesson that Roger was trying to get across in The Wall. Kinda like the old saying-if you don't learn from history, you're doomed to repeat it. He's saying that the whole cycle (the abuse, selfdestruction etc.) repeats itself over and over from generation to generation, the way the album (and story) repeats itself in a cycle through that message. -Dan --"Shine on..."

we came in? Surprisingly, I found this one of the first times I listened. I had noticed that the first part of Disc 1 sounded SO familiar, and I heard someone saying "We came in" and it sounded like he was telling a story. Then when I listened to the end, I found that there was talking at the very end that I couldn't make out. Then CD 1 started again and I realized it was the same music. I listened back, and realized it said "Isn't this where we came in?" I laughed and after all why shouldn't I? I'm not sure if this was before or after I got the DVD because I bought the CDs and the DVD within about three weeks. But when I finally got to listening to the commentary, I heard Waters say that. I laughed and after all why shouldn't I? Isn't this where

The recursion is also on 'Dark Side of the Moon'...if you play the CD on repeat, you will notice that there is a heartbeat which both opens and closes the album and the one blends perfectly in rhythm with the other.

The way I always read or understood this one, is that the entire movie/album happens in the blink of an eye, all inside Pink's addled mind. In other words he experiences this great introspective soul searching trip while sitting in that chair of his that keeps appearing throughout the movie. He experiences a "moment of clarity" in which he understands everything in an instant.

Thank you for offering that! I have owned "The Wall" in album, cassette and CD and never was able to discern the connection. It makes absolute sense now.

When I first got The Wall, it was on cassette. The cool thing was that I had this high-end auto-reverse tape player which would immediately flip sides when it saw the clear leader (most just wait until the reels stop turning). The two sides of the tape were laid down with perfect timing, so that the phrases "Isn't this where..." and "...we came in?" were right at the very first magnetic portions of the tape. The result? Using a deck like the one mentioned above, you heard the two phrases joined together with only a slight hesitation as the deck flipped from side 2 back to side 1. I've never tried this but I'd bet putting the CD on REPEAT ALL would have a similar effect (if your CD player can seek fairly fast).

I think it might have to do with the fact that the intro and outro music are the same thing. But, knowing Roger, that whole history-is-a-cycle thing coulda been a deeper meaning of it.

The bit with the ending connecting with the beginning was done due to 8-track tapes. With an 8-track, it automatically starts the beginning up again right after the ending, merging the two pieces. For the album Animals, they actually had an extra guitar track recorded to merge the end/beginning, but it came out that in fact it was a studio musician who did the track, not David Gilmore.

I've noticed that too. Say, does anyone know what is said right at the end of "Outside The Wall" last track on CD 2? I just thought about it right now.
