The leading light of the age all wondered amongst
themselves what I would do next
After all that I'd found in my travels around
the world was there anything else left?

  • What a haunting story this song tells.
  • ♥ ♥ ♥
  • This song is a masterpiece and that's really all I have to say.
  • Brilliant song!
  • So rare to find a song that can nearly bring me to tears through its music, lyrics and delivery. This is one of them.
  • So I said all I got are my guts and my god then I paused....
  • An epic song.. the story of my life as I see it
  • 'Til at last all around us was fastness / one vast glassy desert of arsenic white
  • And I won't call it rescue.
  • Such a beautiful song. What an epic tale.
