Goodbye to All That

I walked across the stream, and headed out into the country,
Under my own steam, on a disused railway track
Closed down in nineteen sixty-five

I lay me down to rest, where countless sleepers lay before me
Brushed away my tracks, like the Doctor, incomplete
Still traces, traces survive

So goodbye to all that, goodbye to all that
Goodbye to all that stuff you left me
Walk it into the ground, stop it grinding me down, for a while

I walked across the street, in a once familiar city
Down the alleyway, to a derelict picture house
Closed down in nineteen twenty-five

I lay me down to rest, as the streetlights shone above me
I felt I had regressed, and your spirit came to life
In front of, front of my own eyes

So goodbye to all that, goodbye to all that
Goodbye to all that stuff you left me
Walk it into the ground, stop it grinding me down, for a while

And if water finds its own level
How far have I got to fall?
Can’t keep walking forever,
How long before I’ve seen it all?
How long before I’ve seen it all?

So goodbye to all that, goodbye to all that
Goodbye to all that stuff you left me
Walk it into the ground, stop it grinding me down, for a while
