Pink Floyd - Two Suns In The Sunset 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."

    Do you know Rodger Waters went into a deep depression after this last album?

  3. PATRIOT 7

    This sun is in the East even though the day is done two suns in the sunset could be the human race is run.

  4. C. B.

    A masterpiece. Such a heavy song man......... The rusty wire that holds the cork that keeps the anger in
    Gives way and suddenly it’s day again.

  8. Alvaroskito

    Nibiru believers have ruined this song forever

  9. Danny H

    This album is what makes great bands great! If you cant apprciate this album you are not a true Floyd fan.

  10. MeloLand

    Great song....

  11. Pete Ashe

    Even amongst other great Floyd tracks two suns is excellent this album was from the boys at their best

  12. WISE FROG

    capturing❤

  13. mark suckerturd

    Planet x is here

  14. Higzy Teflon

    I remember buying this album on cassette, waaay back, and not expecting it to be anything special since it was lower-priced than other Pink Floyd albums and I had not heard any of the songs played on radio -- only to discover that it was mind-blowingly great! I will never understand how this album did not achieve the same success and radio play as previous Pink Floyd albums. It might just be their best work and is for sure my favourite.

  15. Native V F W

    We made it home from overseas. To our own sun but still picturing it in our minds. The two suns that live on through cognitive memories, painful stories and a life lived greater than oneself. But my sun today will always have a shadow of the other.

  16. Collin Wild

    Need this playing at my funeral but not for many years I hope

  17. sidney pasquarelli

    I like this song a whole lot!

  18. Jay MacDonald

    I am pure unexistance knowing! Okay How can I fuck myself up? what you see in a glass pane

  19. James Gray

    The sax player ( take a bow!) only one thing wish the sax solo was longer

  20. Erek Anderson

    This song is just beautiful to listen to. Gives me peace of mind the entire five minutes

  21. Christoph Barone

    I don't think David Gilmour appeared on Final Cut

    Welcome to The Void

    Christoph Barone he’s on “Not Now John”

  22. Knower

    I'll have to give this album another listen - I have it on CD along with all Pink Floyd's albums but I'm Pipers/Saucerful at heart - showing my age see.
    :¬)

  23. Jay MacDonald

    Right now some insane bitch is screaming outside about me! Okay here is what is weird too... Why does Siobhan at Starbucks think I live with my Mom? When did I live here in Pinehurst with my Mom all these years? Fucking nut! These people are fucking crazy! I am leaving this bullshit country soon!

  24. Jay MacDonald

    Well I suppose if I had to leave Seattle I would. Of course the King County Sheriff has to serve me an eviction notice. After that I will leave the country and blow it off forever and live in Mexico. I'll just be a Mexican citizen.

  25. Dante Arellano

    This is true we have a two sun in the sunset?greatings from Philippines.

    Rodrigo Santos

    Only if China nukes Manila.

  26. Joe Carolan

    this is about the divide faceing america today 2019

  27. sidney pasquarelli

    Like this song a lot!

  28. Grazhny Neezhnies

    This is one of the most beautiful songs written by Roger Waters, so tragic, but so beautiful

    AnyColourYouLike

    His vocals when he screams cut right in the heart ❣️ my favorite vocalist.

    Grazhny Neezhnies

    AnyColourYouLike You're right!

  29. Alvaro Cruz

    I Can’t explain my feelings when I listen to this song .

  30. Maria Quelqu'un

    ❤️🎷

  31. Angry Always

    This is getting played at my funeral

  32. DVFDrinkOrDie

    "you have no recourse to the law anymore" it says but I beg to differ. You would have no recourse to the laws of men but those aren't "the law" - not the true law; the laws of nature under which every living thing is equal and for which the rules are all the same- to those laws its the ultimate recourse; the rules are simple and always enforced,. What we do to the earth's biosphere that supports us, we do to ourselves and also, extinction is inevitable its just a matter of time and nature has all the time in the universe ; as a species and as a living organism you do not. If life goes on for hundreds of millions of years after we are extinct (it will) and aliens a half billion years from now discover this planet and start studying life here they will know we were here because every living organism will bear the mark of the radioactive isotopes we left here when we detonated atomic bombs in the atmosphere; we all have those isotopes in our bodies; every living thing on this planet does and will practically forever.

  33. SomeGuyinWY

    This track still brings a tear to my eye. After 36 fucking years. There is just something about that sax at the end of the song that just seems to fit perfectly.Having purchased the album when first released, I loved the photograph from the view of the driver in a car with the sunset in the full view of the windshield and the mushroom cloud of a nuclear bomb in the rear view mirror. Simply. Fucking. Brilliant.

  34. Anonymous

    This song has only become more relevant since release. And could quite possibly be the anthem to a devastating future that we create for ourselves. War, bombs, missiles, death. We were born from fire and we will die in fire. What a beautiful masterpiece of a song.

  35. Onthewall4God

    Very prophetic song

  36. chaz Whitfield

    2019 and there are two sun's at sunset in California.

    Malik Holmes

    Its everywhere bro. Not just cali, ppl just aren't paying attention to the skies

    Two Suns in the Sunset
    Pink Floyd
    Album: The Final Cut

    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
    Hmm
    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.

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

    Predictive Programing for sure, I have the real pictures, happened this morning through my Infrared Filter and multiple cameras. This is the Time to Choose where you will spend Eternity, With your Creator, Yeshua and His Father Yahweh. Or you will spend it in torment with a fallen cherub......Get your Heart Right with the True LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS. I will be uploading to my channel in the next day or so. If we still have time.



    This YT video was uploaded to prepare for some disclosure following the pagan easter Ishtar, holy day of Babylon.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLQGpMWdBRE
    Yesterday was the 22nd and nothing happened because there were Clouds in the Sky, I mean heavy overcast in New Mexico. But this morning not a cloud in the sky, Blue as in Days of Old before Chemtrails. Then I was watching KFOX El Paso and I could not believe my eyes. At the End of the Weather report, the studio displayed a picture of their Webcam not a cloud in the Sky, except a HUGE Red Planet in the middle of the Screen. This image was displayed 3 to 4 seconds. If You have Eyes to see that Christ has given you, plus I have been praying for HIM to show ME These deceptions, He kept his promise. I am a photo buff and have Infrared Filters I pointed my cameras to the Sky and There they were. Solar Simulator Equipment, a Hologram projecting this large fake planet with impact crators being projected by their equipment that YOU AND I and Our Tax Dollars paid for them to use to deceive US. The Bible States What is Concealed Will Be Revealed. I'm not saying the Planet X system is all fake, but some of the Psyop is.

    "...And you'll never hear their voices.

  61. Kweog Og

    actually Gilmore has a much more long lasting and colored career than waters just because nihilism is a one note song

  62. Kweog Og

    have to say: love this album. favorite is meddle. Roger waters best was music from the body. and I don't care what anyone says. the wall sucks

  63. Jason English

    What does star wars have to do with Floyd? Such a great song, good ending to a masterpiece album

  64. Pacero

    The only sax, I found out, years later, that could play this notes, was on a movie, with Tina & Mel.

  65. chad stengel

    The sax. The end.

  66. DARK GLOBE

    roger waters is pink Floyd

  67. Chas

    Soon there will be two suns in the sky!

  68. Michelle Nine

    I have video proof there is 2 sun's :(

  69. C Ratt

    whats the tuning for this? I've tuned to standard and its way off. did the capo on the first fret, nothing. help!

  70. hairycat

  71. Dany Leclerc

    How can i send you some pictures

  72. Miguel Rodea

    Otra de tantas obras de arte de la mejor banda del mundo

  73. Earl Brackett

    Roger's last scream on record I think...well, KAOS has one on the song Radio Waves, right before the guitar solo...only Rog could make a scream part of the musical landscape of a song.

  74. Marko Polo

    I just love the saxophone near the end. Classy and sublime

    hedleylamarr72

    You got it. I'm not the only one!

  75. Frag Out, Fire in the Hole!

    I'm a writer, I love this song.

  76. Henry Miller

    Roger Waters is a fucking genius

  77. Breaker

    (17/10/2018) Roger Waters played this song for the first time ever and I was there (Salvador - Brazil)! Amazing. RESIST!!

  78. Walter Skinner

    This is a piece of art that can be used to tis someones humanity. Put some headphones on them, put them in a dark room forcing them to focus on the music. If they leave the room without having shed a tear, you may want to take a serious look at them. Thank you Rog.

  84. Alexander Smith

  85. Cesar Sanz Ghalary

    Sin duda alguna, la mejor canción desde lejos de Pink Floyd.

  86. WOKE nz

    Scott deLong

    You should know that Roger is an atheist. So's Dave, Nick, and so was Richard. Most smart people are.

    Far away
    Across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spells...

  89. Francis Nardi

    The Final Cut has more Floyd in it, more soaring potential than even The Wall did. It feels like an open-air album, especially this song. It's bleak, but not in the claustrophobic Wall way. This has its ties to Dark Side of the Moon, with the great horn at the end. This is good.

  90. laura 7v7

    La mejor!!!

  91. Víctor CM

    1:45 .That bass gives me chills

  92. HermitintheRain

    Here is a song where there are three ways, maybe even four ways to appreciate this. The lyrics are sobering. But then the music, especially that sax, is mesmerizing. Then you listen to the whole composition of the song to see its brilliance. Finally when taken in with the whole theme of the album-well words cannot do it justice.

  93. remigio lanciano

    The power of ROG

  94. Alessandra Landim

    Difícil definir....pinck Floyd.
    Muito bom.

    Thallis Ferreira

    pink é sem C amor. mais realmente é muito bom!!

  95. Gus Fogle

    2:14 what a gut-wrenching vocal performance from Waters.

  96. Judson McMillan

    This song is... a timeless masterpiece

  97. Ken Hernandez

    I remember listening to the Final Cut album for the first time.I remember vividly how sad I was when the last song on the album finished.

  98. Diane Guccione

    I understand this song was played at the dedication erected by Roger Waters for his father after finding all the facts of his death at war. A thank you to a Good man fighting and giving his life for freedom, may he R.I.P And to Roger, he would be so very proud of your accomplishments, creations,and the great man you grew into, and all you have and are doing to try and make this world a better place. You are so much more than music, Thank You
