He listened to this song in the dark after that incident for a full day, it seems kind of fitting, doesn't it? Okay, you're full of it and really sick Flagged liveislife on December 17, This actually is a true story, thank you very much, it happen to my older brother's dad when he was an EMT in my hometown. Some times things happen like this, and I know it's really sad, imagine how he felt trying to help her.
Thanks, floydfanatic Flag Floydfanatic19 on November 07, General Comment this is one of THE most amazingly beautiful songs that i have ever heard, even above wish you were here. My Interpretation Those who have suffered tragic loss, a seeming eternity of 'pain and the trouble' and despair are on an island.
Life goes on for those who have yet to endure such daily worry and hardship. It's a lonely existence on that island, while the majority go on with their lives, only thinking of the 'pale and downtrodden' in-between parties, concerts, movies, vacations, restaurant visits, and other leisurely activities that come only to those who haven't had to burden something that almost impossible to overcome.
When it's convenient, they may give an occasional thought to turning towards the "weak and the weary", facing their own "coldness inside" and overcoming that weakness, just briefly, conveniently. I absolutely love the floyd boys and i have to say that this is one of the greatest songs that has ever been wrote! My Interpretation I have always loved this song because in a humble understated way it lets us know in no uncertain terms that if we are not trying to see how we can be part of the solution, then we are part of the problem.
Sometimes the problems of the world can be so great; like children starving in Africa in great numbers, millions of people around the world, homeless and living on the line of starvation, the abuse of children and other helpless individuals and people driven to suicide because they are not accepted by society, that we want to try to pretend that they don't exist and ignore the pain, but this is what we must never do.
In many cases, perhaps most cases, we are powerless there is little we can phisically do, but we can always offer our emotional support, our compassion, even if not in person. Personally I have suffered much pain in my life as I suspect many of us have, and there are times when I am grateful for the pain because through this pain I derive the depth of my compassion.
As people have stated this is a call to arms and reminds us that the fate of humanity is in all our hands. Bob Ezrin David Gilmour. The Great Rock Discography 7th ed. Edinburgh: Canongate Books. London: Omnibus Press. My bass and other animals Pbk. Song Lyrics. Review: RIFF-it. RIFF-it good.
Listen while you read! Add Comment. A New Machine Part I 2. A New Machine, Part 1 4. A New Machine, Part 2 5. A New Machine, Pt. Unless you lived or live by the2 or 3 thousand year old mentality when evil was considered The Bad, which was the poor, the meek and the slaves and The Good was considered to be The Rich and famous political educated Elites mindset that for ''some'' reason haven't change much ''even'' after the Albert Einstein quote about living with 'those that do evil doesn't destroy the world?
But by not doing nothing about it certainly will! No wonder god came down as Jesus in the Bible to educate us clowns who died for our sins in order for us to know the good from the evil, then and now.
When in the present we're still ''on the turning away'' from what our evil sins have been doing to influence the rest of us that got ''even'' worse in the world since the atomic bomb drop and integrating ourselves with Israel's law and order that influenced more wars throughout the world and of course the middle east.
Where a good majority of us the people slowly settled ''on the turning away'' from the ones that became ''weak and weary'' in desperate need for acceptance, shelter and love. From us the people that were conditioned to become selfish and conceited that turns away from the meek and fragile minded individuals that now have a difficult time just to live with the suffering. In a society that became a dog eat dog world with a survival of the fittest mentality that we as a people should breakaway from it's evil grip and no more turning away from them in need that also wants to reach their hopes and dreams with a healthy passion to become their own heroes and not cowards that should fight the war against the new forms of evil created, so that we didn't have to exit ourselves out ''On the turning away''.
The song is about the band Pink Floyd's 'turning away' from founding member Sid Barrett, who mental illness made him a liability. Specifically, David Gilmour was chiding Roger Waters for doing so. It was turned into a larger meaning, encompassing all such things, a 'man's inhumanity to man' thing. The words that most specifically point to Barrett are "it's not enough to stand and stare", both because that's what Barrett did, and what some band members did when he lost it.
This song is about the moment you overcome a bad thing that happened; it's for the new day that comes after the darkness; there is no place for division - one must be open-minded and face his "new life" with mind empty of hate.Pink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London in Gaining a following as a psychedelic band, they were distinguished for their extended compositions, sonic experimentation, philosophical lyrics and elaborate live shows, and became a leading band of the progressive rock genre. They are one of the most commercially successful and influential groups in popular music history.
