about

An atmospheric ode to our hometown of Newcastle.

lyrics

This broken town
Where we'd spend hours walking the streets
Hot asphalt burning our feet
As we bowled another round
This broken town
Where we drink our coffee and chat politely
Fill the cafes with our sound,
While the outstretched hand lays empty

But you're beautiful
Oh, you're so beautiful
Oh, with your ageing face
And your grace for the graceless

This broken town
Where we'd spend hours counting red ships on the horizon
Maybe twenty five, maybe twenty six
This broken town
With a mouthful of need and greed and dust
And in between wheezes we ask ourselves
Who can we trust?

But you're beautiful
Oh, you're so beautiful
Oh, with your ageing face
And your grace for the graceless.

With your ageing face
And your grace.
