LYRICS: Pidgeon Park
By Sarah Aubrey

On street corners and public places
The needles take the ashen faces
Pigeon park is empty except for litter and the stains
The crows pick at carcasses in the last pieces of day

Oh company
Oh it’s all we seek

Chinamen fill the gutters and they kick at the decay
While men in silver towers watch the city crumble away
Metal winches buildings holding everything in place
While the sticks and shells of people take their part in the human race

Oh company
Oh it’s all we need
Oh company
Oh it’s all seek

People walk and people talk and they come and go again
Everyone locked in silence with the music in their ears
Through the silt and the glue
The weeds and the stone
There’s pebbles in everyone’s pockets and they can feel it in their bones

Oh company
Oh it’s all we need
Oh company
Oh it’s all we seek
