Come and watch the Sun set with me
From Finistère
A sentimental moment with me
That we can share

Forget the faces of forgotten children
Oh, how they cried
They cannot forgive forgetful Fathers
Oh, how they lied
And now they try to run away

You listen to your Walkmen
On the back seat of the bus
You feel yourself evaporate
In unselfconciousness

The wounded animal sat by the roadside
Oh, "how" he cried
Did the peaceful pastures become minefields"
Oh, "woe" he cried
For now he cannot run away

Oh, run away
From the half digested bitterness you feel
Oh, "how can you stay?
Says the unexpected innocence you keep
And how long does that innocence keep
You from drying up, drying out
And fading away?

The days when I was bullet proof
And nightly full of holes
Is deep and strong as cellophane
In a galaxy of souls

The father to so many needs a mother
Oh, how she cried
Does the Father's Mother need a lover
Oh, "yes, please!" she cried
I know I'll never run away

Finistère
I can't run no more
Finistère
I can't run no more
