  • james hamilton paterson'ın bir kitabı. okumadım ama kesin çok güzel bir eserdir. bruce (bkz: iron maiden) abinin parçaları yazarken muhteşem edebi eserlerden esinlendiği bilinen bir gerçek. ve bu kitapla ilgili muhteşem bir parça yapmayı başarmış.

    ayrıca;
    ilk iki dakikasında insanı ağlatacak kadar enstrümantal bir girişe sahip bir parça. hayatımda dinlediğim en güzel girişlerden birisi diyebilirim. hele son dakikalarda(12:30) bir heyecan, bir gidiş var ki; kapılıp gidiyorsunuz.
    bas bas "feeling the wind as it blows you" diye bağırasınız geliyor.(az önce iş yerinde ritim tutup dinlerken iş arkadaşlarımdan tepki aldım o derece*)
    sözlerini yazayım ki tam olsun. sözler yanlış olabilir. kontrol edilecektir.

    "to ride the storm, to an empire of the clouds
    to ride the storm, they climbed aboard their silver ghost
    to ride the storm, to a kingdom that will come
    to ride the storm, and damn the rest, oblivion

    royalty and dignitaries, brandy and cigars
    grey lady giant of the skies, you hold them in your arms
    the millionth chance they laughed, to take down his majesty's craft
    "to india" they say, "magic carpet float away", an october fateful day

    mist is in the trees, stone sweats with the dew
    the morning sunrise, red before the blue
    hanging at the mast, waiting for command
    his majesty's airship, the r101

    she's the biggest vessel built by man, a giant of the skies
    for all you unbelievers, the titanic fits inside
    drum rolled tight, a canvas skin, silvered in the sun
    never tested with the fury, with a beating yet to come

    the fury yet to come….

    ın the gathering gloom, a storm rising in the west
    the coxswain stared into the
    we must go now, we must take our chance with fate
    we must go now, for politicians we can't be late
    the airship crew awake for thirty hours at full stretch,
    but the ship is in their backbone, every sinew, every inch

    she never flew at full speed, a trial never done
    a fragile outer cover, her achilles would become

    an achilles yet to come...

    sailors of the sky, a hardened breed
    loyal to the king, and an airship creed

    the engines drum, the telegraph sounds
    release the cords that bind us to the ground
    said the coxswain,"sir, she's heavy, she'll never make the flight."
    said the captain, "damn the cargo! we'll be on our way tonight."
    groundsmen cheered in wonder, as she backed up from the mast
    baptising with her water, from the ballast fore and aft

    now she slips into our past…

    feeling the wind as it blows you
    feeling the – as you're passing along
    watching the channel below you
    lower and lower, into the night

    lights are passing below you
    northern france, asleep in their beds
    storm is raging around you
    a million to one, that's what they say

    reaper standing beside you
    wind inside cuts to the bone
    having to make a decision
    experienced men, asleep in their graves

    the cover is ripped and she's drowning
    rain is flooding into the hold
    bleeding to death and she's falling
    parachute gas is draining away

    "we're down lads!" came the cry, bow plunging from the sky
    three thousand horses silent as the ship began to die
    the flares to guide her path ignited at the last
    the empire of the clouds, just ashes in our past
    just ashes at the last…

    here lie the dreams of
    on the ground where they built, and the engines they run
    to the moon and the stars, now what have we done?
    oh the dreamers may die, but the dreams live on

    dreams live on
    dreams live on

    now a shadow on a hill, the angel of the east
    the empire of the clouds may rest in peace
    and in a country churchyard, laid head to the mast
    eight and fourty souls, who came to die in france…"
