lyrics

It's on cedar planks and old oak risers
Looming large on a sea that rises
On a tide to wash away the years

BROKEN BOATS and the wind is screaming
Missing men are bruised and bleeding
Buying time for another year

Time goes slow, there's no where left to go
The wind will carry me back home

The jungle rots and the bugs start teasing
Hanging vines should be hung for treason
The air's so hot the wind won't blow

Green eyes and teeth are staring
They're open wide and the claws start tearing
Buying time for another year

And I've got a strong suspicion that the world is on a mission
To tell me that I'm done for through and through
Good times they went so far, those bad ones just seemed to last
Much longer than I'd want them too

So I'll look out on the horizon
Beacon calls and it's time for leaving
Whistle's blowing I'd better be on my way

It's on cedar planks and old oak risers
Looming large on a sea that rises
On a tide to wash away the years

There I go, I ain't got nothing left to show
The wind is gonna carry me back home
