Lyrics

The patient fisher sits alone
Contemplating skin and bone
The stench of weed, the slippery rocks
The flapping sails on a passing yacht
The skinny schoolboy on the beach
His girlfriend swimming out of reach
The fisher sits there mesmerized
His bobbing line won’t pacify
An ache within that never leaves
A few more hours before he grieves
What made the fisher sink so low
He’d take his own life and let it go
What really died with him that day
He took his secrets to the grave
What secrets lurk behind those eyes
No one cared if he lived or died
A solemn man with a missing smile
He’d lived this way for quite a while
He lived a life of cruel deceit
The gambling led to harsh defeat
The papers called it homicide
But the old man died of suicide
The family name will stay intact
The inquest missed some vital facts
What made that fisher sink so low
He’d take his own life and let it go
What really died with him that day
He took his secrets to the grave
