The Division Bell track listing

"Take It Back" is the seventh song from Pink Floyd's 1994 album, The Division Bell.[1][2]


Guitarist David Gilmour used an E-bow on a Gibson J-200 acoustic guitar that is processed through a Zoom effects box, then directly injected into the board.[3]

The lyrics include a common British reading of the nursery rhyme, Ring a Ring o' Roses, during its instrumental section.
