What does the morse code on Radio Kaos say?

Reprinted from the Echoes FAQ

The cover is pretty easy to decipher--it says:

ROGER WATERS RADIO KAOS WHO NEEDS INFORMATION THE POWERS THAT BE HOME THE TIDE IS TURNING RADIO WAVES

The morse code at the beginning and end of the album, however, is harder to decipher, and supposedly contains a deleted verse from "The Tide is Turning." Here's what we've been able to figure out, from Douglas Whisler and David Truckenmiller:

Start: /..|-|..-|.--|-.|..|-.|--.|...|-.?--|(.-..)

End: --|.-|-.-.|....|---|-...|..-|.-..|.-..|...|....|..|-|.-|-.|-..|
--|.|-..|..|---|-.-.|.-.|..|-|-.--|---|....|-|..|-.-|.|..?../

Which, when decoded, comes to:

Start: I TUWNING SYL (turning Sylvester)

End: MACHO BULLSHIT AND MEDIOCRITY OH TIKE (tide) H

This is supposedly the lost verse in 'The Tide is Turning.'
