“Underneath the sky, where the cold winds cross / there is an ocean, where the data flows” are the first two lines of Peter Gabriel’s “The Veil,” the song he wrote for the movie Snowden. The rest, which you can listen to in the video above, is too good to spoil, as it continues to tell the story of Edward Snowden’s life in immense detail, in case you weren’t already familiar with the famous fugitive. Also, there are foreboding cuts to people using Snapchat and chasing after Pokmon: all the better to underline the horrors of this digital age.
