Roger Waters - "Two Suns in the Sunset" (From His New Album Idea)




I had an idea to make an album of all the songs we did as encores on the US and Them tour.


We did "Mother" first.


Had to do it remotely because of Covid 19.


"Two Suns in The Sunset" is #2.


Hope you like it. I love it.


What a beautiful band they are.

Love

R.


PS. That we allow Nuclear Weapons to exist in a world controlled by deranged sociopaths is, in itself, a deranged arrangement.


We are many they are few.


We could just say no, to the whole MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) insanity.


It makes zero sense and is potentially omnicidal.

Lyrics


In my rear-view mirror the sun is going down

Sinking behind bridges in the road

I think of all the good things

That we have left undone

And I suffer premonitions

Confirm suspicions

Of the holocaust to come


The rusty wire

That holds the cork

That keeps the anger in

Gives way

And suddenly it's day again


The sun is in the east

Even though the day is done

Two suns in the sunset

Could be the human race is run


Like the moment when the brakes lock

And you slide towards the big truck

Oh, no

You stretch the frozen moments with your fear


And you'll never hear their voices

Daddy, daddy,

And you'll never see their faces

You have no recourse to the law anymore


And as the windshield melts

And my tears evaporate

Leaving only charcoal to defend

Finally I understand

The feelings of the few

Ashes and diamonds

Foe and friend

We were all equal in the end


"...The head of the US..."

...and now the weather. Tomorrow will be cloudy with scattered showers spreading from the east ... with an expected high of 4000 degrees Celsius."
