about

Inspired by the movie “The Railway Man” and the experiences of Andy’s Grandfather Matt Nixon who spent 1942-45 as a Far East POW in Thailand. Returning prisoners of war were actually told not to talk about their experiences once they got home. Hard to imagine that kind of attitude today. Andy - “When my Grandad returned home after nearly 4 years my Grandmother actually walked right past him at the port as she didn’t recognise him. Then she heard his voice call her name. She told me this story so many times it clearly had a profound effect on her and consequently on me”.

lyrics

The nights are longer now the dreams are just the same
So begins another day
And though we feel alive with every waking hour
Something died along the way

Robbed of innocence stripped of liberty
Though our hearts were open wide
While her sails are furled the ship will never sail
She’s only drifting on the tide

We live by the silent code
Nobody wants to hear, no one would understand
We walk a dark lonely road
No destination, we have no map to scan

We hoped the past could be erased without a trace
We sailed into the setting sun
When I found you barely recognized my face
The end had only just begun

We live by the silent code
Nobody wants to hear, no one would understand
We walk a dark lonely road
We have no guiding star, we have no masterplan

You’ve been away so long, we know you’ve suffered and we’ll
Bring you back where you all belong
But when you get back home you mustn’t talk about it
That would be best for everyone

Rediscovered lives, undiscovered futures
Retracing footsteps one step at a time
Undiscovered fears, unfamiliar faces
An unfamiliar road, bare the heavy load

We live by the silent code
Nobody wants to hear, no one would understand
We walk a dark lonely road
We have no guiding star, we have no map to scan
