Half a croissant, on a plate, with a sign in front of it saying '50c'

Clearly this is a metaphor for something.

03 - Time (Wasted)

Clicking away. The Bak'ry, it takes up your whole day.
You sit here and waste your hours; mind wand'ring astray.
Sticking around, you've suddenly found, something profound:
A brilliant idea; something to blow them away.

Tired whilst typing in the moonlight, staying up to rack your brain
You’ve got thoughts that need expressing. There’s no time at all to waste.
Looking at the clock you find, ten hours have got behind you
Press submit, your post is done: You wait for Bone or Bun…

*solo*

Handed bun after bun, "I AM number one," so you're thinking,
Holding your ground; a thousand croissants to your name.
While buns bring you fame, you will never attain, what you're after:
A marketable smash, that one day, brings you some cash.

Businessmen won’t fund your project; firms don’t want to lend a dime.
Engineers would rather not, claiming they don’t have the time.
“Son, hang up your wild aspirations,” is all that they'll say.
Your time is up, your dream is over. (It was stupid anyway.)

04 - The Great Gig on the Net

"And I'm not frightened of fishbones, on any of my ideas, any one at all. Why should I be frightened? There's no reason for it, you've gotta get boned sometime."

"If you can read this anno, you'll know who gave you that fishbone."

"I never said I was frightened of fishbones."

(Instrumental)

Don't care bout fishbones, boh-oh-oh-oh-ones
Boo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oones
Boh-oh-oh-oh-oh...

(and so forth).

05 - Pastry

Pastry, get away.
Make a good pun, get bunned, and you’re okay.
Pastry, so it’s true.
Rolls get doled by those without a clue.
Haiku, custard too, pirates, paintball.
Same old crap, no novelty at all.

Pastry, get back.
Good posts get jack; garbage gets heaping stacks.
Pastry, it’s a load.
Don’t tell me it’s rightfully bestowed.
I’m here to try and dispel any dumb-ass praiseful thoughts
Regarding croissants.

Pastry, it’s a lie.
Wheel it, deal it, without even asking why.
Pastry, so I’m told
Is only given to ‘Bakery Gold.
But if you’d open your eyes, you’d be surprised that they’re
Giving tons away.

       Excellent!
Gilmour's solo in that song is one of my favourites of all time. I regularly used to quote from it during my own guitar solos.

       You've just summed up the entire bakery network-- and made it rhyme. Wonderful.

       There. Finally got around to collating them.

       Now we just need The Wagster Trio to come through. Disc burners at the ready!

       Nice work [Cuit]! Sadly the wagster trio is currently bemoaning the fact that they are too busy to do another track for their own album, let alone re-record the whole of Dark Side with a kazoo.
wagster, Jul 07 2006
  

       A kazoo *and* a MIDI piano track. But a talented bunch they are.
