Picture me and Dr Galapagos sitting by the edge of the bay, We agree to let "bygones" be "bygones", doesn't mean we won't fight every day, He owns every inch of these islands, and sometimes he's not too proud to say, I tell him I just work here, but neither of us has enough of anything to pay, We're in the same boat That old rusty postbox Only God knows how long it's stood Seems emptier every day *We've been selling our perspectives, but lately I can't even give mine away* Sometimes, when we pause at our reflections, I wonder if he'll ask me to stay *See, for enemies in our condition we've so much in common, why would we throw it all away?* While the object of our affections sinks further and further beneath the waves Ah, that old rusty postbox, Though you'd think it never could, Seems emptier every day Still no answer To my letter Should I let her Fade... ... away? * So you say you're feeling under the weather Well, we're all under the sky You're already feeling Winter in September Don't let life pass you by * Maybe they just don't deliver This far away Maybe they don't deliver Here at the end of the world Here at The End Of The World (I've travelled so far) Here at The End Of The World Here at The End Of The World Here at The End... Still no answer To my letter Should I let her Fade..? Still no answer To my letter Should I let her Fade..? Maybe they just don't deliver Here at The End Of The World So you say you're feeling under the weather Don't let life pass you by

I have visions sometimes Of less crowded skies Where the sun I worship Doesn't need a disguise It just shines on Endlessly I have visions sometimes Of less crowded skies Where the sun I worship Doesn't need a disguise Where the rolling hills Are moving still Where the ripples of the waves Show reflections of our better selves Our better selves I have visions sometimes Oh, but can I trust my eyes? When endlessly They lie? I have reasons sometimes But can I trust my mind? When endlessly It hides? I have feelings sometimes But can I trust my heart? When endlessly It beats... It beats me down? I have tears, I have fears I have tears, oh and an ocean to fill Endlessly I... Endlessly I... D'you have visions sometimes? D'you have visions sometimes? D'you have visions sometimes? D'you have visions sometimes? Oh, endlessly. Endlessly

Sometimes you just sit and think Sometimes you just sit Sometimes you just sit and drink and you ask yourself "What Am I doing? "Where Am I going? "What does it all even mean? "Where The Hell am I NOW? IS IT TRUE WHAT GOES ROUND, ALWAYS COMES AROUND? I don't know, I don't know, I don't know WHY DO I ALWAYS HEAR BETTER WHEN THERE'S NO SOUND? Maybe we should... Maybe if we could... Maybe it's all been just a little Misunderstood Maybe she just did her best with the cards she was dealt She just did her best with the cards she was dealt Just did her best with the cards she was dealt Did her best with the cards she was dealt I'VE HEARD IT SAID WE'VE BEEN CURSED SINCE BIRTH BUT MAYBE IT'S THE REVERSE AND WE'RE A GIFT FROM THE EARTH This human tragedy Maybe that's the beauty of it So don't waste your time

And So... 04:27
It was easy to sow We sowed it easily It was easy to show We showed it easily We should have known We should have known Better... Better next time It was easy to believe We believed it easily It was easy to dream We dreamed it easily We should have grown We should have grown Better... Better next time It was easy to break It was easy to break So we broke it easily It was easy to fake It was easy to fake So we faked it easily We should have made it home We should have made it home Better... Better next time But it was so hard It was so hard It was so hard It was so hard We broke it easily Better next time But it was so hard It was so hard It was so hard It was so hard We broke it easily

Lost in TV 'Cos they used to believe in it Fostered their homes Out of Ivory and gold (they) Refused to grow old, But for whiskey and blueberry Held on to anything they found and barely made it out alive But where are they now? And how much did they pay? Where are they now? I'm freezing and hopeless And... Is it really such a surprise? How much did they pay? I'm subtle and humble now I'm falling for all of your wiles Mmmmm... Lost in TV Where are they now? ... and how much did they pay?
