Ruin

  • I've seen gypsies who made it all the way
    And kept going, kept rolling with nowhere to go
    Nowhere to go.

    As far as I've seen, from the bush
    In the wilderness, to every known city
    I've been to Saudi Arabia, dug up Calcutta
    So I went to Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
    Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
    Belfast, to the desert, Spain
    Some little bitty island in the middle of the Ṗacific
    All the way back home, to my town
    To my town
    Bitching, complaining, yet some people who ain't got shit to eat
    Bitching, moaning, so many people you know what they got

    What are we doing?
    We're sitting on a ruin
    What are we doing?
    We're sitting on a ruin

    As far as I've seen, from the bush
    In the wilderness, to every known city
    I've been to Saudi Arabia, dug up Calcutta
    So I went to Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
    Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
    Belfast, to the desert, Spain
    Some little bitty island in the middle of the Ṗacific
    All the way back home, to my town
    To my town
    Bitching, complaining, yet some people who ain't got shit to eat
    Bitching, moaning, so many people you know what they got

    What are we doing?
    We're sitting on a ruin
    What are we doing?
    We're sitting on a ruin

    What are we doing?
    We're sitting on a ruin
    What are we doing?
    We're sitting on a ruin Writer/s: CHAN MARSHALL
