Wave Goodbye
when your brothers won't love you at all
and your sisters are strange as your skin
and your father is dying but pretends not to know
and your lips are thirsty and thin
when you stare at the old southern cross
when you speak not the tongue of your kin
you can take off your black face and stand on your own
it's alright if you won't let me in
wave goodbye to your sorrow my friend
sleep will come once your body is fed
so keep following me to your end
Iíve a place for you laid out ahead
keep running and watching your feet
keep painting your hands and mouth red
if you want me please tell me be more discreet
help me pull my tongue unto the bed
-lyrics and music by Robert Gowan & Adam Murphy (
