This song was written about Donald Campbell, a British man who broke his own water speed record repeatedly. In 1967 Donald lost control of his boat, the Bluebird K7, and both the boat and the man were lost to the lake.
After hearing this song, a man named Bill Smith was inspired to raise the wreckage of the Bluebird. Steve Hogarth
and Steve Rothery of Marillion were on hand for the raising on May 8, 2001.
