Flood The Tamar

lyrics

The night takes the weight of the past day
As I wander streets that I don’t know the names of
Above me is empty black, in front buildings of grey
The street lights attack the milky way

And the blackened sky reminds me of the countless nights spent lying on the balcony
With the best of company
A beer or 12, a deck of cards, my blurry vision brings out the stars
hidden by the city lights
We look over a river of mud
I silently will it to flood
And when the levee breaks and the town drowns
The balcony will keep us safe and sound
And we’ll never have to go back down there ever again

All anyone in this town wants to do is leave
I say we stay and claim it as our own
We could tear this whole place down
And build it up into a brand new home

And where is the love? Certainly not here
One by one all my old friends disappear
Running away for jobs we need but don’t want
So let’s fucking drown the whole fucking lot

Play drinking games until the town is gone
We'll discuss what we knew all along
Our greatest friendships are built upon
Happenstance and alcohol

We look over a river of mud
I silently will it to flood
When the levee breaks and the town drowns
The balcony will keep us safe and sound
We’ll never have to go back down there ever again

No we’ll just get drunk up here instead
