    General Commentthis song is so beautiful

    i think it is about a man from england who becomes a missionary. he travels
    to peru to aid the struggling people there, but they capture him and torture him
    instead. as time passes by, neighboring tribes and villages learn of the captive in
    the peruvian town. this song chronicles his epic struggle for survival as he endures
    lashings, floggings, lynchings, and the firing squad every day. towards the end of the
    song, which the lyrics clearly illustrate, he escapes to neighboring brazil. but he is
    still so used to the harsh and primitive lifestyle of the mud-covered world that he
    assimilates to the less-than-favorable conditions

    MemoryI believe this song was in the movie "When the Wind Blows" (based on the graphic novel by Raymond Briggs). It was playing on the radio a minute or two before the bomb hit.
