Lyrics

    The fishing boats go out across the evening water
    Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
    The wind whips up the waves so loud
    The ghost moon sails among the clouds
    Turns the rifles into silver on the border

    On my wall the colours of the maps are running
    From Africa the winds they talk of changes coming
    The torches flare up in the night
    The hand that sets the farms alight
    Has spread the word to those who're waiting on the border

    In the village where I grew up
    Nothing seems the same
    Still you never see the change from day to day
    And no-one notices the customs slip away

    Late last night the rain was knocking at my window
    I moved across the darkened room and in the lampglow
    I thought I saw down in the street
    The spirit of the century
    Telling us that we're all standing on the border

    In the islands where I grew up
    Nothing seems the same
    It's just the patterns that remain
    An empty shell
    But there's a strangeness in the air you feel too well

    The fishing boats go out across the evening water
    Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
    The wind whips up the waves so loud
    The ghost moon sails among the clouds
    Turns the rifles into silver on the border
    On the border
    On the border
    On the border
