Lyrics

Down by the sea
I found your hidden treasure
Just you and me,
We overdosed on pleasure
Your knees in the wind,
We're ruggin' up for winter
Putting out the bins
In cold and windy weather
Down by the docks
Live all the silent sea-ships
Crates are stored on blocks
Where now only the rats live
Sail me down the river
Till we reach the shore
Diving into the center
Eating out the core
Down on the beach
Saluting Captain Benbow
Always out of reach
It's quiet when the tide's low
Climbing up the cliffs
You can see for miles far
The boat that ran adrift
Is sitting on the sandbar
Laughing at the waves
That storm the river mouth
The ice is on the move now
Creeping north and south
Down by the sea
I found your hidden treasure
Just you and me
We over-dosed on pleasure
Listen to your heart
Screamin' at the sky
Can't you feel it tremble?
Don't you wonder why?
