Song Meaning
Verse 1
So does the ink dry out
So does the singing mouth get sung up
So does the new headline no longer reach the town
So does the rosy fire of the horizon fade into dull grey
While the trees out by the parking lot get greener with the rain
Verse 2
On a dazzling field of blue
She comes sailing into view
All around her engines scream and guns unload
Verse 3
Comes Indiana through the smoke
Indiana through the smoke
Verse 4
But you were bigger than life
You were giant, you were earth-size
And now you're mostly just your mind
And your dim eyes, and your fractured spine
And you're sailing to the great unknown
But you've gotta go alone there
You can't even take your childhood bride
But it's okay that she's crying
Verse 5
With her OS2U fleet
Anti-aircraft battery
She is occupied by 1800 souls
Verse 6
Comes Indiana through the smoke
Indiana through the smoke
Verse 7
And this great big buzzing death-hole swells
At the corner of the carpet
Nurses going in and out
Well they all just step around it
And the room is moving in so close
As some moment's coming nearer
And your story's coming out so slow
But I come closer and can hear her
Verse 8
And she steams out Casco Bay
Part of Task Force 58
And the young men 'board her all are brave and bold
Verse 9
Comes Indiana through the smoke
Indiana through the smoke
Verse 10
She won't sink or run aground
She won't turn back, she won't back down
When you find your time to finally let go
Verse 11
Comes Indiana through the smoke
Indiana through the smoke
