The lyrics to We Work The Black Seam by Sting.
This is what Sting has to say in his lyrics book:
"The 1984 Miner's Strike in Britain disintegrated into a personality clash between the Prime Minister, Mrs. Thatcher, and the miners' union leader, Arthur Scargill. As I was raised in a mining community, I felt not a little sympathy for the miners, whose way of life was being threatened, and also had some serious concerns about the safety of the nuclear power stations the government was putting such faith in. Of course, neither source of power is ideal, but that would be another song" (Sting 107).
