Funeral pyre (from the song “One Slip,” on Pink Floyd’s Momentary Lapse of Reason album)

I heard the words “funeral pyre” in the Pink Floyd song One Slip (from their Momentary Lapse of Reason album), and wondered what that was. From Wikipedia I learned that a funeral pyre is “a structure, usually made of wood, for burning a body as part of a funeral rite or execution. As a form of cremation, a body is placed upon or under the pyre, which is then set on fire.”
