Per Gilmour (to The Guardian) –

Well, Rick [Wright] is gone. This is the last thing that’ll be out from us, I’m pretty certain there will not be any follow up to this. And Polly, my wife, thought that would be a very good lyrical idea to go out on. A way of describing the symbiosis that we have. Or had.
