I've no fond farewell for you
I've got the shitty beach town blues
You caught me getting in the cab
I waved and then I turned my back

Down by the wreckage of the pier
I saw your darkness and I found my greatest fear
The mighty whale and Abraham
The wretched fish that one day crawled out of the sea
To be a man

I paddle back to my homeland
And it's a dump, it's a tin can
And I'm a cautionary tale
You sucked my blood
You left me iron-poor and pale

The skeleton of years gone by
Lit by the moon and by memory of a fire
We are the band
The band plays on
We're making music while the ship goes swiftly down

Down by the wreckage of the pier
I saw your darkness and I found my greatest fear
The mighty whale and Abraham
The wretched fish that one day crawled out of the sea

Goodbye, ocean
Goodbye, England
I hope tomorrow treats you well
It's not your fault
It's probably me
But I'm getting out if I still can
