Silver's chart is like which Van Der Graaf Generator song?

Here's silver's chart, with a nice red line on it showing you the cliff that you don't want it to jump off of:

And all I can say is Peter Hammill said it better:

I stood alone upon the highest cliff-top,
looked down, around, and all that I could see
were those that I would dearly love to share with
crashing on quite blindly to the sea....

I tried to ask what game this was,
but knew I would not play it:
the voice, as one, as no-one, came to me....

'We have looked upon the heroes
and they are found wanting;
we have looked hard across the land,
but we can see no dawn;
we have now dared to sear the sky,
but we are still bleeding;
we are drawing near to the cliffs,
now we can hear the call.

The clouds are piled in mountain-shapes,
there is no escape except to go forward.
Don't ask us for an answer now,
it's far too late to bow to that convention.

What course is there left but to die?
