12:35: Now everything’s being destroyed by rogue space debris. As Stone whirls around and around, attached to a giant space boom, Gilmour sings about the sun (it’s “racing around to come up behind you again!”) and points out that, with every minute, she is “shorter of breath, and … closer to death!”
13:15: As Stone tumbles off into empty space, Gilmour sings, “Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way.” To calm herself, Stone recalls her routines on Earth: when she comes home, cold and tired, she likes to warm her bones beside the fire.
