One of my turns Lyrics - Pink Floyd
Review The Song (1)
Day after day, love turns gray
Like the skin of a dying man.
Night after night, we pretend its all right
But I have grown older and
You have grown colder and
Nothing is very much fun any more.
And I can feel one of my turns coming on.
I feel cold as a razor blade,
Tight as a tourniquet,
Dry as a funeral drum.
Run to the bedroom,
In the suitcase on the left
You'll find my favorite axe.
Don't look so frightened
This is just a passing phase,
One of my bad days.
Would you like to watch T.V.?
Or get between the sheets?
Or contemplate the silent freeway?
Would you like something to eat?
Would you like to learn to fly?
Would you like to see me try?
Would you like to call the cops?
Do you think it's time I stopped?
Why are you running away?

The Wall Plotline - One of My Turns | Reviewer: Mike | 7/20/09
Pink invites a groupie into his room after learning of his wife's affair. At first when the groupie tries to get his attention, he is too busy thinking of his wife to hear her, and the song is largely a description of his failed relationship with his wife. As the groupie continues to try to get his attention, Pink explodes into a fit of violence and destroys his room which drives the groupie away. Lyrically, the explosion of violence toward the groupie is a metaphor for fear-based explosions of anger at his wife. At the end of the song Pink puts on a darkly sarcastic tone and starts nonchalantly telling the groupie about his "favourite axe" and asks her "would you like something to eat", a reference to the groupie helping herself to a glass of water. As the groupie flees the room he screams "Why are you running away?", feeling pity for himself.
