Two Suns in the Sunset

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
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

Tremendo tema ese,…el ultimo de “the Final Cut” 1983, tu no sabes la “infatuation” que tengo yo con esa banda, hace como dos meses me voy leyendo “Inside Out” a personal history of Pink Floyd, de Nick Mason, el drummer, y me he demorado tanto porque cada vez que hacen una referencia a la realización un tema o a un álbum, voy a escucharlo y a hacer research. Jejeje, dice Niurkita que estoy medio loco.
Two suns in the sunset es casi desgarrador asere, “atómicamente” hablando.
Dale. Cuídense ambos
