Welcoming the cool rain in of the astounding dawn
Watch the birds hovering over Narrow Moor
In deeper lines of deeper sleep, into the Tumuli
All the pretty machinery under the sky
For you have drunk all your beer go drown your empty selves
For then you will have lost it all the last of this Island

As you Blackout
Blackout again
My love

So bring it down, let it fall, into a drizzling bliss
Then we'll hyperventilate in the old forest
Then I will see all those things, things that can not be seen
For you have drunk all your beer, go drown your empty selves
For then you will have lost it all, the last of this island

As you Blackout
Blackout again
My love
Blackout again
My love

    General CommentI love this song, brilliantly moody. Most songs on the album seem to run on the same theme of loss: "the last of this island". This one is not an exception.

    General Commentnot the normal vocalist on this song, but take nothing away from this song every bit as good as most of the offerings on the 1st album, maybe the younger brother should sing more of the songs.

    General CommentReActor, the line you mention is a reference to a Hillaire Belloc quotation: "When you have lost your inns drown your empty selves, for you will have lost the last of England."

    General Comment'Narrow Moor' presumably refers to the moorland ridge connecting the hills of Maiden Moor and High Spy (to the west of Borrowdale) in Cumbria. (Three of the band come from Cumbria.)
