I think if you're an artist, you're immediately put in a position of opposition to mainstream society, because you are trying to tell the truth. Both have huge back catalogues, spirituality which is difficult to fathom and a reputation for sometimes giving journalists a hard time. But again, I think that process is just getting started. I went to Cambodia and Vietnam a few years ago in connection with the landmine issue. I don't see myself as a leftist.

Huge machines at night with lights on them. It was Cockburn's only hit in the United States, peaking at No. But whereas it was the start of something in the Canada, in the sense that the next few records I put out also got a lot of air-play, in the States that didn't happen, so with Rocket Launcher it was like starting all over again.

So that was kind of where the song jumped out of and then it moved onto reflections of more spiritual things and the need to move on whether you wanted to or not. I only get glimpses of it and those glimpses are strong and tantalising. Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay One of these days we're going to sail away, Going to sail into eternity Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me And I'm wondering where the lions are. D They got me thinking 'bout eternity G6 G6 D D G6 G6 Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me Chorus: Verse 4: D D Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay G6 G6 D One of these days they're gonna sail away D Gonna sail into eternity G6 G6 D D G6 G6 Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me Chorus, repeat, and fade.

As ever is the case, religiousness was being trotted out as a justification for all sorts of atrocious behaviour. So how does he describe where he's at now? It was, however, named the 29th greatest Canadian song of all time in the 2005 series. Jerry was looking at the camera and saying, 'Well you know that this terrible tragedy was caused by all you people who've had abortions and all you gays and lesbians! Capo 2nd fret if you want to play along with Bruce. Petroglyph is a rock painting, for those who haven't run across the word, and in the context of the song in which that word appears, which I'm about to do it makes sense, to me at least.
