Take me to the shore
and wrap me in a blind tomorrow
I won't fight no more
and I won't scream
maybe we'll be washed away
maybe I just need a holiday

This time we'll get
a room with a view and a velvet painting
and this time we'll stay inside
until the lights go down
over the palm trees and the sand

Buy me the blue sky
and wrap me in clouds of blasphemy
in the end I won't ask why
you can do what you want with me
maybe we'll be thrown away
maybe we just need a holiday

This time we'll get
a room with a view and a velvet painting
and this time we'll stay inside
until the lights come up
and everything's vermillion

Take me to the shore
and throw me in the water
I won't fight no more
no, I won't say a thing

    General CommentWow, I love this song. I can't believe no one has commented on it! Anyway if you read in Matt's manfestos he says he thought of this song while he was stranded at sea in a lifeboat. And how he washed up on an island with Dave, Ian, Geoff after being lost at sea for nine days,only to find out they had been on the same ship he had been on when it crashed. (this is how MGB got together) Then they were held captive there for a long time. Sounds crazy but it's true.And to think he went on that cruise to have a holiday. "take me to the shore, and wrap me in a blind tomorrow" The chorus is about how next time he decides to go on a vacation he'll get a room with a view of the ocean, not be out on the ocean.
