lyrics

[Verse 1]
Perth, my friend
Is it at an end
All the fear and deceit?
Now or do you
Harbour evil too
Side streets, waiting for me?

[Bridge]
Cause I might be free
But I'm just a body

[Verse 2]
Believe that I
As the years passed by
Could have raised a new me
But at what price?
Should I catch my eye
Perth dear, what would I see?

[Bridge 2]
Cause in the grand scheme
I'm just one body
What would my life mean?
One trilobite breathing

[Middle 8]
Now consider you, Perth
Just a tiny map fragment
Not a speck on the earth
No matter what happens between all the people
The blind little people
And though I am one of them
I have to mean something

I have to leave you
[Repeat]
