Lyrics

Ghost Town (Discovery)

Written By: Ted Parkinson

Wind, blows its way through
Cracked and bleeding walls
Dust, shoves itself through
Shrunken, split floorboards

It’s not the kind of town you’d
Want to spend a long time in
It’s not the kind of town you’d
want to be found dead in

Walking down broken sidewalks,
On silent downtown streets
Tripping over clumps of
Vigilante grass

The country’s claiming back old
Miner’s last retreats
Soon even the dreams will die
It won’t be long ‘till the dreams all die

Chorus:
Making love in Discovery,
in the back of a laundry
I thought I’d discover me,
but all I got was dirty
Making love in Discovery,
in the back of a laundry
I thought I’d uncover me,
but all I found was it’s dusty on the floor….

We packed up all our gear and
Left when winter came
I’d like to say it changed our lives but
Our mistakes are still the same
But whenever I see an old ghost
Town I wonder why
Anybody ever lived there and
Why it had to die

Chorus:
Making love in Discovery,
in the back of a laundry
I thought I’d discover me,
but all I got was dirty
Making love in Discovery,
in the back of a laundry
I thought I’d uncover me,
but all I found was it’s dusty on the floor….
