StoryCredits


"Rainbows like that are very common in airship travel."
-The Hindenburg (1975)

There's a wild wind blowing
Down the corner of my street
Every night there, the headlights are glowing
There's a cold war coming
On the radio I heard
Baby, it's a violent world

Oh, love, don't let me go
Won't you take me where the street lights glow
I can hear it coming
I can hear the silent sound
Now my feet won't touch the ground

Time came a creeping
Oh and time's a loaded gun
(Every road is a ray of light)
It goes on
Time only can lead you on
Still it's such a beautiful night

Oh, love, don't let me go
Won't you take me where the street lights glow
I can hear it coming
Like a serenade of sound
Now my feet won't touch the ground

It burst into flames!

It's fire–and it's crashing! It's crashing terrible! Oh my, get out of the way, please!

It's smoke, and it's flames now. . . and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring-mast. Oh, the humanity and all the passengers screaming around here.

I–I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest, it's just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage. Ah! And everybody can hardly breathe and talk, and the screaming. Lady, I–I'm sorry. Honest: I–I can hardly breathe.

I, listen, folks, I–I'm gonna have to stop for a minute because I've lost my voice. This is the worst thing I've ever witnessed.

-from Herbert Morrison's radio broadcast as he witnessed the disaster

Gravity, release me
And don't ever hold me down
Now my feet won't touch the ground
