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 [2]
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!") [3]
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..."

[1] Nuclear annihilation my friends, nuclear annihilation!

[2] The tone of voice Roger Water uses here was first used in The Wall and was also abused (in a good way) in The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking, his first solo album.

[3] "Daddy, daddy..."

[4] See how worthless that puny invention was?
