Stingrays move from the dark to light blue
Drawn to the shore by the fish that we threw
Our skin, it was burnt by a stolen sun
As ships said goodbye and set sail for London

We'd walk through the trees
Until leaves gave way to sand
And wondered what we'd do
After falling every tree in the land

Branches break and the purple bark sheds
To the soil then the street where the strangers all tread
We've tired out our muscles and the jokes are all spent
As we carry the timber like wounded old men

We'd walk through the trees
Until leaves gave way to sand
And wondered what we'd do
After falling every tree in the land

Rivers and roads run to the sea
Where boats wait like coffins down by the jetty
The last of the wood is taken below
Now the Karries are gone and the roses won't grow

We'd walk through the trees
Until leaves gave way to sand
And wondered what we'd do
After falling every tree
We'd walk through the trees
Until leaves gave way to sand
And wondered what we'd do
After falling every tree in the land
