about

Definitely a true Glacier song in every sense, but written by Pete Cornforth before he joined the band. The song remains almost intact barring an extremely “wacky” middle section which has been omitted due to being almost unplayable. Pete himself denies he ever wrote this section, however, a scribbled piece of manuscript in his own writing disproves this.

lyrics

There’s a new shape on the skyline
As though a careless stone, mislaid
Has scoured another course, unthought of
Ships that once brought cargo
Are returning, barren to the sea
With only barnacles and lemmings
For their earthly company

Another turn, a brief diversion
One more Chopin for the pianola
There is still a rainbow for the pennies that we save
Another fight for every soldier
Winter’s journeys for strange wanderers
There’s a man of steel for those too rigid to be brave

Beyond the wave …

All that the cat’s-eye failed to recognise
The torn-out pages of a diary
Bearing names and deeds not told of
Would bring a kind of understanding
A certain genius of nature -
Fredrick turning, jingle-jangling
In his hurdy-gurdy

Another turn, a brief diversion
One more Chopin for the pianola
There is still a rainbow for the pennies that we save
Another fight for every soldier
Winter’s journeys for strange wanderers
There’s a man of steel for those too rigid to be brave

Beyond the wave …
