From the recording The Language of Curiosity
I’ve been run down in the fields, do you know just how that feels
but I think that there’s a God and that’s the truth
Having laid my son to rest, I don’t know which way is best
but I am sure we’ll find some happiness at least
There is fighting in the street, with the children at our feet
Surely now it’s time we found a better way?
We don’t have a place to go but the only thing I know
is it won’t be here but in a distant land
Trying to find a way through
To a certain future
Love is all that matters now… To us
Won’t the world embrace us
With a certain future
Love is all that matters now, to us...
Well I know my quest is right and I’ll never see the light
Like the 30000 souls who’ve gone before me
Got some money in my hand and am goin’ to make a stand
Against a destiny of fear and certain heartbreak
Though we’re trying to count the cost I know the war is lost
All we have is a sea of human fucking heartbreak.
We don’t have a place to go and the only thing I know...
is it won’t be here, but in a distant land
