This place keeps me awake It whispers things in my ear that aren't easy to take When you're crashing so hard, just trying to recharge The batteries are dead The smokestacks are silently spinning A pretty pink and orange sunset I haven't been to bed yet The weather is colder than I could dress for Once in a few days to ourselves Of muttering things with no meaning to anybody else We can finally relate the details of this debate The conversation's dead The seagulls are carefully watching A pretty pink and orange sunset I'm not even dressed yet The company is older than I could dress for (Goodness sakes alive, come inside) There's tea on an olive green stove It's whistling shock and amazement at the miles that we drove Just to stop and say hello, and talk about whether Queen Charlotte's dead And King George is silently mourning A pretty pink and orange sunset There's still time to shoot the drag yet So crank the windows down Crank the music up We'll drive circles 'round this town And pretend that we aren't stuck in the tracks that we made Just trying to be brave This industry is dead The mills cast a grim silhouette against A pretty pink and orange sunset But we're not giving up yet The worst case is our best bet To hold these lines we've defended Since these skies were blue Instead of this grey That fades to a pink and orange dusk
