The Journey

  • Lyrics
  • Written by Ian Hunter, this song started life as a poem and ended up an epic 8 minute track. It is based on Suicide Bridge, a bridge in Archway, North London which got its name because so many people have jumped off it. The song contains a clear allusion to Christ in the wilderness. >>
