Tim Booth – Down To The Sea lyrics

Everyone' s a victim
Noone is to blame
Find a bum to dump it on
This unwanted shame

When I point the finger
I' ve got three pointing back
Haven' t a clue
What you' ve been through
So it' s easy to attack

Everybody' s looking for their own way to get high
Find God
Shoot him up
Learn how to die
My head' s full of self-pity and noise
I need a clean me
I need a new voice

Go down
Down to the sea
Down to the ocean
She' s calling to me

Everybody' s famous
For a second or two
We could address the world' s distress
But the popstar's on too.

Feeling so damn lonely
Looking for a soul
Trying hard to cover up
The emptiness
The hole

What you' re calling culture
Is just arcades and malls
I can' t hear myself think
I can' t hear my heart sink

Here' s my diversion
A howl at the moon
The only time I feel alive is when I' m with you

Go down
Down to the sea
Down to the ocean
She' s calling to me
Gonna wash away my tears from your face
