lyrics

This could be train station art
Or some kind of boxcar lullaby
A reminder of the ugly truth
Burnt beautifully across the sky

The sea the sea is swelling
The birds are restless marionettes
It’s been a long time since we’ve remembered
What we never were supposed to forget

Worn out boots & wooly plaid coats
Trudging along miles of road
The road ends but we keep going
Further than our tracks will show.

And the whales! Will live where we lived
When were we lived gets washed away
Our fields will be the beds of giants
Our streets will be where they lay

And as the snow falls heavy over a blackened ocean
As it swallows the land with a soft emotion
The birds will rest at sea tonight
The birds will rest at sea.
