lyrics

Sometimes this world is a brutal place
Dark, cruel and cold
And evil thrives on the innocent
God rest their souls
No map or direction to show the way
When death and shadows enfold
All you martyrs who aim for paradise
May go to hell

All the stories as told and the images graven
Of blessed lives of sacrifice are craven lies by charlatans
And everybody knows

We'll go on down to the riverbank
And look once more
Through the mist, see what's left of the factory
On the other shore
The wind tastes of salt, of the harbor and
the sea which stretches beyond
Do you wonder if this is paradise?
Sometimes I do

All the stories I've told and the lies you've forgiven
Are in the salt and mist and sea, the harbor and the factory
And everybody knows

Sometimes this world is a brutal place
Dark, cruel and cold
And evil thrives on the innocent
God rest their souls
The wind tastes of salt, of the harbor and
The sea which stretches beyond
If you leave me in search of paradise
I bid you well
