A score of years this line has run
Above the crests that drown the sun
A mile high the turbines turned
The stokers sweat the monkeys burned

  • This really was a hell of an album.
  • am 09.03.2012 in Berlin...
  • I heard somewhere once that the narrator of the song is the ship "carrying you home". For me, that makes this song so much more beautiful. Also, I love the "clang clang clang" noise in the background. It puts the whole ship sailing on the ocean (and the people working on it) picture together quite well.
  • Sadly missed... RIP big man! Never forgotten.
  • RIP Stuart
  • Beautiful lyrics.
  • One of my all time favorite songs of the 80's and surprisingly hard to find as a single download. Fabulous song.
