I remember the sun's clear light
Pushing away the last trace of night
As I awoke on the muddy plain
Fireworks from the night before
Like echoes from a distant war
Rang in my ears and in my brain
And from the hilltop I could see
The ocean sparkling peacefully
The ivory beach's crescent jewel inviting me
Am I the last one left?
Am I the last one left?

And must I ride
To catch the early tide
And walk out, walk out, walk out
Into the sea...

Get down before the shooting begins
Doesn't matter which side wins
In endless rows the bayonets shining
A sole ray of sunlight a moment defining
Shoot! Shoot!
The sergeant called from the rocky crest
While a seagull winged its anxious way
Across the sky to find a nest

Explosion of anger crystallize
Forgotten inner nature rise
And blacken out the sun
Stand, don't run
'Til dark among the hundreds left for dead
I chew the leaden bullethead
And turn my toes to the skies
Try to close my eyes

Mother where have you gone
You didn't come home before dawn
And I need to see your face
'Cause I don't know this place
Lover I'm going away
So many things I forgot to say
I'll see you in the night
In the golden firelight

Coming 'round, coming 'round
Like a circle about to begin again
Going down, going down
Gonna sleep with the fishes and forgotten men
Coming 'round, coming 'round
Like a circle about to begin again
Going down going down
Into the sea...
