Roger Waters - Two Suns In The Sunset

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
And 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, hmph
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 (*Scream*)
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

Roger is a genius and such a compassionate human being, who can't bear the pain of humanity and the injustice in the world. God bless him and let him see a world free of wars and pain, so his soul may be at peace too. 💟

One mark of a Great song is that it evokes a fond memory..this song reminds me of traveling with my family across the Snowy South Dakota plains in December of 1987, I was 15 and recently discovered Pink Floyd a year earlier by listening to The Wall…so it was me in the backseat..looking out with The Final Cut playing on my Walkman Headphones…not knowing my own personal Apocalypse would happen a several months later with the sudden passing of my Mother…fond memories of another time..Thanks for the Great tune!

What does it for me here is the modern production, of course the backing vocalists are stunning and envelop real emotion to the song. The other genius here is of course Rodger himself, the lyrics paint such a vivid picture in one's mind. Especially "and as the windshield melts and my tears evaporate, leaving only charcoal to defend" wow!!!
An absolute Masterpiece of the song lyrically and musical.ly 👍👍👍👍🙏
Never stop Rodger for we will be poorer if you do.

Sounds rich and wonderful, love the organ, its all good.
Been a pink floyd for 50 years and the music has inspired me write and play my own work, especially during the covid plague. I even have songs named after the floyd, even verbs, like floydalism. Music and writing is one way I stay somewhat sane, when seemingly uncontrollable events are looming. I deviate into jazz at times and the one song that I love playing on the keyboard is 'San Tropez' among many others with friends. San tropez is one of the most worthy small peices that should be in every repetoire of things. In the library of congress, a jazz classic, just my opinion and heck its so much fun to play.
Where it came from , I cant bother looking, it makes me feel good or centered? I could say similar things about the Kinks amd Ray Davies, some melodies and lyrics are so spot on. Even a small ring of truth is worth a fortune to someone,
I could a novel about my listening experiences with Pink Floyd throughout the decades.
tnx for what you do

Dear Roger. This version of Two Suns... is SUBLIME. The girls voices ... WOW! You and the band should be registered with the World Heritage Organisation as a Global Musical Treasure. The Final Cut is my absolute favourite ever album out of any genre. I must thank you, and Dave, and everyone involved with yours and Pink Floyd’s timeless music that has made my life better than it might have been; I was certainly born at the appropriate time, thank heavens!

One of the best songs from the album. Remember as a school kid visiting the WWI battle sites and graveyards in Northern France and Belgium in winter, a haunting place at best, but this album compliments the era so well with its melancholy and nostalgia, never shall we forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice

I graduated from high school in 1983, the same year this album was released and every time I hear it, it takes me back to a time when life was allot simpler. A time when I was still young and strong. A time when the world wasn't so screwed up as it is right now. God help us.
