Cover of Postcards from a Young Man

From Postcards from a Young Man

According to the A Billion Balconies Facing The Sun Songfacts, the song title is taken from a passage in writer J.G. Ballard’s 1996 novel, Cocaine Nights. Ballard wrote: “A billion balconies facing the sun; still, it means a final goodbye to wars and ideologies. But how do you energize people, give them some sense of community? A world lying on it’s back is vulnerable to any cunning predator.”
