Well I'm so far away
if I keep going I'l be back
I'm as drunk as I've ever been
The sky is cracking
from the weight of this storm.
So long my dream.

So long Electric Brae
From the land of my father
You used to make me laugh
Now you're so far away
So long Electric Brae.
So long Glasgow town
It's been a while since I've been around.
I miss you red skies and your gracious frowns.
So long Glasgow town

Well I woke up this morning
Mistook the rising sun
For my electric light
I burned my fingers trying to pull it out
And then I begged for the night.
I've crossed three oceans
Walked for eight days straight.
Just to lose the faith that you gave me.
But as the sky cracked open and the sky fell in the sea
I realise I'm only passing though.

So long Electric Brae..


from It's Nothing Personal, It's National Security, released June 10, 2008
