On The
Turning
Away


A song by Pink Floyd.


"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 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 wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the
speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are
strange
And mesmerised 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?
