The Space

Introduction: Steve Hogarth wrote on Marillion.com "Feeling fragile. I once saw an Amsterdam tram rip the side off a parked car which had been left too near the tramlines. It did so without slowing down. In terms of mass, the competition was so one-sided, like a ball-bearing and a feather, that I often wonder whether the tram driver noticed it happen. The damage was massive, inevitable, and casual. It's an enduring memory. I have occasionally been the tram. And I have often been the car."

This information was originally sent to us by Jacco Kuipers. According to Tim Glasswell's excellent Europeans/How We Live site, the 'Everybody in the whole of the world...' end section of The Space came from the chorus of an unrecorded How We Live song called Wrap Me in the Flag. Subsequently, it has come to light that the end section originated in a Europeans' song entitled So Far Away and thus the song is bears additional songwriting credits for Colin Woore, Ferg Harper and Geoff Dugmore.
