​The Mighty Whale And Abraham

This song is by Catherine Feeny and appears on the album Empty Buildings EP (2008).

I've no fun farewell for you,
I've got the shitty beach town blues,
You caught me getting in the cab,
I waved and then I turned my back.

Down by the wreckage of the pier,
I saw your darkness and I felt my greatest fear.
The Mighty Whale and Abraham,
The wretched fish that one day crawled out of the sea,
To be a man.

I paddled back to my homeland,
And it's a dump, it's a deep 'can',
And I'm a cautionary tale,
You sucked my blood, he left me 'iron poor and pale'.

The skeleton of years gone by,
'That by the moon and by the memory of the fire'
(Not sure)... Band plays on
We're making music while this ship goes swiftly down

(Whistles)

Down by the wreckage of the pier,
I saw your darkness and I found my greatest fear.
The Mighty Whale and Abraham,
The wretched fish that one day walked out of the sea.

Goodbye ocean.
Goodbye England.
I hope tomorrow treats you well.
It's not your fault,
It's probably me but,
I'm getting out if I still can
