Pink Floyd - On The Turning Away download album

Pink Floyd frontman David Gilmour told Only Music (December 1987): "'Turning Away' is about the political situations in the world. We have these rather right-wing conservative governments that don't seem to care about many things other than looking after themselves. Gilmour wrote this with Anthony Moore, a lyricist who was in a band called Slapp Happy. The band split up in 1983 after releasing the album The Final Cut. In 1985, Waters told their record company he was done with the band, which he thought would retire Pink Floyd. The following year, Gilmour and drummer Nick Mason reinstated keyboard player Rick Wright as a full member (Waters demoted him to session man) and announced they would be continuing as Pink Floyd. Waters tried to stop them, but his legal efforts failed.

The last Pink Floyd studio album, The Endless River (2014), was recorded without Waters and based almost entirely on unreleased material. David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, Roger Waters, Syd Barrett

On the Turning Away" is a power ballad from Pink Floyd's 1987 album, A Momentary Lapse of Reason. Released as the second single from the album, it reached on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart in early 1988. A live performance of the song was featured on both the video and double CD releases of Delicate Sound of Thunder. The song references issues of poverty and oppression, lamenting on the tendency of people to turn away from those afflicted with such conditions

Album: A Momentary Lapse of Reason, 1987. - info --. Album: A Momentary Lapse of Reason Year: 1987 Music: Gilmour. 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 it's 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 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 stirring Where the speechless unite In a silent accord.
