Charted: 28
  • I hear a sound, a sound above my head
    Distant sound of thunder, moving out on the moor

    Blackbirds flew in and to the cooling towers
    I'll pack my bags
    Thinking of one of those hours
    With you, waiting for you

    My god, it takes an ocean of trust
    In the kingdom of rust

    I long to feel some beauty in my heart
    As I go searching, right to the start
    The road back to Preston
    Was jutted out in snow
    As I went looking for that stolen heart
    For you, waiting for you

    My god, it takes an ocean of trust
    Takes an effort it does
    My god, it takes an ocean of trust
    It's in the kingdom of rust

    Oh in the kingdom of rust

    I long to feel that wince in my heart
    As I went looking
    I couldn't stop
    Now I'm waiting for you

    oh yes it does
    I know it takes an ocean of trust
    In the kingdom of rust Writer/s: ANDY WILLIAMS, JEZ WILLIAMS, JIMI GOODWIN

  • Thomas from Bolton, United KingdomAw, I'm a bit disappointed that they had no input on the video. Despite the director being from London, It felt like the videos style was concocted by someone with Lancashire blood running through their veins. She did a stand up job telling that story.
  • Ernie from Guadalajara, MexicoKingdom of rust appears at minute 46 in Zombieland, just when they enter to Los Angeles.
    It shocked me since the first time I heard it. It sounded country, western, alternative rock, melancholic...
    What a wonderful song!
    Period
  • Margy from Alameda, CaIt was near the beginning of Zombieland and just using the song made me love the Movie more.
    The Doves get deeper, the more you listen, the more you hear.
  • Cal from London, United KingdomI'm Surprised that nobody has even mentioned the fact that this song was featured in the action/ horror/comedy/zombie movie Zombieland that came out on October 2, 2009. I don't remember what scene(s) were playing when this was on (in the background so as not to drown out the dialoge).
