"The Tide Is Turning"
By Roger Waters

I used to think the world was flat
Rarely threw my hat into the crowd
I felt I had used up my quota of yearning
Used to look in on the children at night
In the glow of their Donald Duck light
And frighten myself with the thought of my little ones burning
But oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning
The tide is turning

Satellite buzzing through the endless night
Exclusive to moonshots and world title fights
Jesus Christ imagine what it must be earning
Who is the strongest, who is the best
Who holds the aces, the East or the West
This is the crap our children are learning
But oh, oh, oh, the tide is turning


"That's it!"
[Morse Code:]
"Now the past is over but you are not alone Together we'll fight Sylvester Stallone We will not be dragged down in his South China Sea of macho bull# and mediocrity"


- PS

Happy Autum Everybody!!

"That's the Spirit!"
- Rutger Hauer, "Blade Runner"

What the hell did I just read and what is it supposed to do with politics.


It is a OK tune but you shouldn’t have posted it in U.S. elections.

No. Just, no. We're not in your head with you. Explain yourself.

Resistance is futile. No explanation is necessary. Just a good song with a hopeful outlook for the future. No cloak and dagger troll sludge to second guess. Just a good song with a positive message from the former "Pink Floyd" frontman Roger Waters. A genius. A true star.

WTF has he got against Stalone?

Did he like, watch 5 minutes of Rambo blowing sh** up and then go write a song about it?

Even freakin' Rambo isn't really the character Waters seems to think he is. Stalone's good guys on the whole do a pretty good job of avoiding the glorification of war and killing, while still being in an action movie sort of world. They're usually moral in a pretty good way and have a downright responsible approach to blowing # and people up compared to most of what makes up the rest of the genre.

Maybe if Waters did some situps every day, he could have put out an album more often than once a decade. Being a man includes taking care of yourself and that is not macho bull#. Taking care of yourself doesn't make you a monstrous tool of the man or whatever, dude.

Maybe if Waters and Gilmour were both in good shape, they'd be able to respect themselves enough to not behave like such ridiculous, spoiled children whenever they negotiate and we could have had a few more good Pink Floyd albums.

I really like your positive attitude. ATS would be in a sorry state indeed with out the love and insight of posters such as yourself.

As for Waters' physique, I think he's in pretty good shape for a man of his age:



As for the number of releases: It's all about quality, not quantity. And really, there's no argument against his genius that would hold up in any "Trial".

- Peace

Just wanted to post this video on ATS to remind people that not every muslim is an extremist. This store owner is getting robbed, he pulls out a gun, the robber drops to his knee's and tells the muslim that he's broke and his family need feeding. The muslim then gives him $40 and a loaf of bread, making him promise not to steal again.

Whereas the context of this story is rare, the kindness of this individual shouldn't be brushed aside. Its also worth noting that its not his religion that makes him a decent person, its his humanity. Some people on ATS should learn to seek to see the difference instead of just bashing muslims as a whole.

(NaturalNews) The GMO debate is over. There is no longer any legitimate, scientific defense of growing GM crops for human consumption. The only people still clinging to the outmoded myth that "GMOs are safe" are scientific mercenaries with financial ties to Monsanto and the biotech industry.

GMOs are an anti-human technology. They threaten the continuation of life on our planet. They are a far worse threat than terrorism, or even the threat of nuclear war.
