"The Beach" as written by and Scott Mcmicken Toby Leaman....
There's a hole in the roof
And the rain's coming down
The roads are flooded
There's no way back to town
And the ship we came in on
Has just run aground

You know fate has a funny way
Of coming around

The memories we've buried
Have just taken seed
When springtime comes
They'll turn into weeds
And they'll creep through your window
To smother your dreams

You know fate has a funny way
Of coming around

Oh, they'll carve our names like scripture
To the soles of our feet
Each footprint that they take
It will tell of our beat
Till the night of the following rain
Till the low tide comes to swallow pain

This bottle of bourbon,
Now dry as a bone,
It drank us all up
Then it left us alone
Well we've since switched to skull pot
But we can't choke it down

You know fate has a funny way
Of coming around

    General CommentThese lyrics are a bit off, most notably it should be:

    "A trail of madness, oh they'll follow and read
    til the flow tide comes to swallow the beach."

    and

    "Well we have since switched to Skull Pot,
    But we can't choke it down."

    General CommentThis makes me think of the approach of death as our lives are dwindling down in our twilight years. it's a scary concept that the young generally avoid thinking about. the beach being swallowed is like death.

    this whole album seems like a pessimist's perspective on life, and its significance, or lack-there-of.
