‘Let’s take the boat out’

let’s take the boat out
wait until darkness comes
 
I have been listening to Peter Gabriel’s album ‘So’ for twenty years and still it does not bore me. It is filled with beautiful songs, like ‘Mercy Street‘. The lyrics and the music bring you to another place. The place Anne Sexton was thinking of?
 

 
Peter Gabriel talks about ‘Mercy Street’ here.  He refers to the poet Anne Sexton and her poem ‘45 Mercy Street‘.
 

 
Anne, with her father is out in the boat
riding the water
riding the waves on the sea
