Big Big Train - The First Rebreather Lyrics

  • In a place where the river banks draw near
  • Men work a heading to the west.
  • Where streams like giants' fingers close
  • From the hills to the emptiness beneath,
  • To the depths of the mere.
  • Morning light, midwinter sun
  • Underneath; the river song.
  • In a place where the river banks draw close
  • Men break stone to make new ground.
  • Light and air are hard down deep to find
  • Engines work to hold the water back
  • To the edge of the mere.
  • 'Run boys run toward the light;
  • The river's in, the tunnel's in';
  • Here she comes
  • The sleeper wakes,
  • Ten thousand years
  • She lay in wait for this.
  • Every night their dreams were filled
  • With the fear of the river breaking in.
  • But this was not a river god,
  • This was something rising from the deep,
  • From the depths of the mere.
  • 'Run boys run make for the light,
  • Save yourselves, the tunnel's in.'
  • Here he comes
  • The first rebreather,
  • Like a mummer,
  • Like a souler
  • (Come to save them.)
  • Rising up to the height of the river
  • At flood tide.
  • Engines fail, lost to the water
  • As silence falls.
  • This man will walk into darkness,
  • One foot in front of the other,
  • Into the unsounded depths
  • Of the heading;
  • Into the fifth circle of hell,
  • With no light to lead him home,
  • Man is all alone at the end.
  • This man will walk into darkness
  • Without fear of what lurks in the shadows.
  • Watching the surface grow quite still,
  • Waiting for hope at the ninth hour,
  • Man all alone in the darkness.
  • Here he comes: the first rebreather.
