Hands upon the ghost
To the city of solid iron
Through the kingdom of the boats

from David Bowie – Dancing Out In Space Lyrics on Rap Genius


It could be that the city of solid iron is a ship’s graveyard, with the ghost being one of those who have drowned, and the kingdom is referring to the boats still sailing on the sea.
