Ruins by the Shore

This song is by Nic Jones and appears on the live compilation album In Search Of Nic Jones (1998).

Sometime between ice ages was that they first appeared,
Fell hungry on the beasts and fish they speared.
But all their bones are blackened
And their faces are no more
As we walk among the ruins by the shore

They worshipped gods and thought they'd never die,
But now the spiders nest the tombs wherein they lie.
But all their bones are blackened
And their faces are no more
As we walk among the ruins by the shore

They dreamed of golden cities raised into the air,
But greed drew their simple hearts into its snare.
But all their bones are blackened
And their faces are no more
As we walk among the ruins by the shore

Kings, tyrants and their empires on the Earth held sway,
Their belief in science took their souls away.
But all their bones are blackened
And their faces are no more
As we walk among the ruins by the shore

We search the heavens and the silent skies,
Hoping that light will fall on blinded eyes.
But all our bones will blacken
And our faces be no more
As we lay among the ruins by the shore,
As we lay among the ruins by the shore.
