​Fatal Shore

This song is by The Fixx and appears on the album Elemental (1998).

So we reached the fatal shore
Some had gained while some had suffered
Though our quest was for always more
We only took from those we conquered

Back to ground
These genes of mine, the wheels of time will always go
'Round and 'round
Back to ground
The soul we sell, the living tells
The story well 'round and 'round

So we made a battlefield
We mixed our blood as perfect strangers
This was life and death so very real
The winners' needs were the losers' dangers

Back to ground
The soul we sell, the living tells
The story well 'round and 'round

'Round and 'round
'Round and 'round
Hey, we skittle across the gene pool
And our chromosomes come raining down
Raining down
As the water starts to rise
Then we'll realize

So we reached the city walls
Where the last poor fool spluttered
He said, "Though my children never knew
They served a purpose like the others"

'Round and 'round
'Round and 'round
Hey, we skittle across the gene pool
And our chromosomes come raining down
Raining down
Carrying the fatal flaw

Hit that ground
'Round and 'round
Swimming to the fatal shore

('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
(Carrying the fatal flaw)
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
So we reached the city walls
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
So we reached the fatal shore
(Carrying the fatal flaw)
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
We made blood on the battlefield
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
The quest is forevermore
(Carrying the fatal flaw)
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
Oh, carrying the fatal flaw
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
Swimming to the fatal shore
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
Carrying the fatal flaw
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
(Carrying the fatal flaw)
Our quest was for always more
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
More, more, more
('Round and 'round and 'round and 'round)
(Swimming to the fatal shore)
