lyrics

1 - Somebody told us to be happy,
(To) wait for salvation on the beach.
As I joined the line for my happy pills,
(Sal)vation seemed far out of reach.
Somebody told us to be glad,
(But) watching the faces only makes me sad.
Told us that hope was all we’d ever had
(But) somehow I still keep feeling bad.

Chorus - (My heart feels) heavy, on the beach
Where desperate souls are standing next to me.
My soul feels empty, on the beach
Where frightened eyes are all that I can see

2 – No more delusion from the radio
Whose message has flown on the breeze
No more hopeful voices on the crowded shore
As death rolls in across the sea.
Couldn’t find an answer in our fantasies
Played out in the final fleeting days.
Couldn’t find an answer in salvation’s band
Now silent and forsaken on the way.

Chorus - (My heart feels) heavy, on the beach
Where desperate souls are standing next to me.
My soul feels empty, on the beach
Where frightened eyes are all that I can see

Vocal Bridge 1 – I will cling, onto hope
While my friends are all around me by the sea
I will dare, to believe
That there’s something else beyond, awaiting me.
And though we may be dead and gone
I pray our souls find peace beyond.
As we wait, and we watch
For salvation from the shimm’ring sky.

3 - So I’ll welcome everybody, I can reach
To an end of the world party, on this beach.
And when there’s no one else to call
And the silence starts to fall
I’ll find myself a quiet space
My final resting place,
On the beach.

5 – Suddenly I look around, aware that all is silent
On the beach.
Suddenly I realise the party’s almost over,
On the beach.
I gaze into the staring eyes,
Still looking upwards to the skies.
I know my time is coming near
And I’m the last one standing here…
On the beach.

Vocal Bridge 3 – Now, the darkness is complete
And the fiery wind
Took my breath away.
Now, my end is really here
And the dreams are gone
As I close my eyes.

Vocal Coda – Now there’s no on left alive, on the beach
(repeat ad lib)
