    Default What do you think ?

    YouTube - Pink Floyd On The Turning Away

    I always like to know what people think and why.. And for me this song provokes thought... if you listen, share what you think of when you do please.
    For me, I think of how times change and people forget things in history or forsake it, and how its contagious and accepted until something or someone creates a spark, an event or reason that makes everyone remember what was forgotten... But then I'm told that I think too much sometimes too XD

    There is no such thing as thinking too much, unless you think to the exclusion of all action my friend. I'm glad you acted on your thoughts and posted this. Pink Floyd is often thought of as just another old brain dead hippie group. Many people have no idea how deeply profound and touching thier lyrics so often are.

    This song illustrates the lack of empathy at large in all too many hearts. It is easier to turn away from that which we find uncomfortable, than to take a moment to try and understand it. It is no crime to seek to our own comforts, but it is a shame when we allow the pursuit of those comforts to blind us to the realities of others. We gladly turn torward that which brings us pleasure. That which makes us uncomfortable however, creates a desire to make us turn away.


    On The Turning Away

    On the turning away
    From the pale and downtrodden
    And the words they say
    Which we won't understand
    "Don't accept that what's happening
    Is just a case of others' suffering
    Or you'll find that you're joining in
    The turning away"

    It's a sin that somehow
    Light is changing to shadow
    And casting its shroud
    Over all we have known
    Unaware how the ranks have grown
    Driven on by a heart of stone
    We could find that we're all alone
    In the dream of the proud

    On the wings of the night
    As the daytime is slurring
    Where the speechless unite
    In a silent accord
    Using words you will find are strange
    And mesmerized as they light the flame
    Feel the new wind of change
    On the wings of the night

    No more turning away
    From the weak and the weary
    No more turning away
    From the coldness inside
    Just a world that we all must share
    It's not enough just to stand and stare
    Is it only a dream that there'll be
    No more turning away?
