lyrics

I came across a town with no graveyards
They throw their dead out to the sea
We’ll clean out all of our graveyards
And set our fathers free
I came across a town with no old folk
At forty, they give up the ghost
They say better than to die from a stroke
Is to throw oneself out to the coast
That’s why they boast

B6 E7 Am7

I came across a girl with no family
She gives herself out to the crowd
She knows she’s not going to end up happy
She don’t want help; she’s too damn proud
I came across a town with no lovers
It leaves a bitter aftertaste
On the streets they destroy one another
With alarming haste
It’s such a waste

I came across a man with no children
He told me that he’s one to mourn
It was sickness in old age that killed them
Before they were born
I came across myself by the ocean
He was watching his first sunrise
I asked him what on earth he’d been doing
He just smiled and closed his eyes
So I asked him to lie
