"Lost for Words" is a song recorded by English rock band Pink Floyd, written by guitarist and lead singer David Gilmour and his spouse Polly Samson for the band's fourteenth studio album, The Division Bell. It appears as the penultimate track on the album. The lyrics, mostly penned by Samson, are a bitterly sarcastic reflection on Gilmour's then-strained relationship with former bandmate Roger Waters; the second-to-last line, "But they tell me to please go fuck myself", is just the fourth instance of the word "fuck" being used in a Pink Floyd lyric within the band's official discography and, indeed, just the fifth instance of a Pink Floyd lyric using any profanity at all (the other ones being "I've got thirteen channels of shit on the t.v. to choose from" from [The Wall 'Nobody Home']"Oh don't talk with me/Please just fuck with me" in "Candy and a Currant Bun", the B-side to Pink Floyd's first single, Arnold Layne, "You fucked up old hag" in "Pigs (Three Different Ones)", a song from the 1977 album Animals, and the repeated line "Fuck all that" in "Not Now John", from 1983's The Final Cut). The song was released to US rock radio the week of the album's release, succeeding "Keep Talking", the previous promotional release, released the week before. The song reached #53 in the Canadian singles chart.
