  • Cut to the seagull
    The quarryman
    The castle
    The barnacles
    The cliff edge
    The joy
    Up in the tower that looks out to sea
    The pink dressing room bell
    Of the lady is ringing
    She looks from the shadows
    Out through the stained colors of old glass
    The sorrows of slate and sugar cane are hers

    And where does she go now?
    And where does it seem to be free?
    And where does she go now?
    And where will she carry me?

    If this is the end
    The line in the sand
    The blue dressing room bell
    Is ringing the lord
    He wishes the head of the whale
    Who lived under the ice
    Until shipping lanes sliced
    Open the North Pole
    Leaving a great hole

    And where do I go now?
    And where does it seem to be free?
    Where do I go now?
    Where will you carry me?

    If I'm on the back
    I'm on the back
    I'm on the back of you
    I'm on the back
    I'm on the back
    I'm on the back of you
    I'm on the back
    I'm on the back of you
    I'm on the back
    I'm on the back
    I'm on the back of you
    I want to be light now
    I'm on the back of you
