Rocker on the hill
Left alone until
He is cooled by the
Lightest of rains

Runner in the din
Let’s the high rocks slip
‘Til the clash and the sea spray are gone
The clash and the sea spray are gone

Oh the little rocks
Lay low on the tide
(Oh the little rocks lay)
The little rocks lay
(Oh the little rocks lay)

Bobby sails the cat
Down the midway flat
Like a freeform not far from the land

Sailing bells are hung
Brushes on the drum
And the free bird of Cantabile
And the cameras come down the midway

Oh the little rocks
Lay low on the tide
(Oh the little rocks lay)
The little rocks lay
(Oh the little rocks lay)

Rocker on the hill
Left alone until
He is cooled by the
Lightest of rain

Runner in the din
Let’s the high rocks slip
‘Til the clash and the sea spray are gone
The clash and the sea spray are gone

    General Commentmusic-wise, this song reminds me so much of the libertines.
    although.. i'm not saying the music is unoriginal.

    anyway, what the hell could this song be about?
    hmm, maybe 'clash' and 'sea spray' are metaphors for problems 'bobby' had.

    General CommentI think the song is about a rock musician who's sitting on a hill (allusion to the Beatles' "Fool On A Hill") and complaining about how he can't catch a break. "Clash" and "Sea Spray" are referring to band names (The Clash as in the Clash, not sure who the Sea Spray are).
