On the edge of the bay
A day just like the next
They gather their nets
And face their boats around
Over the rooftops
Hear the hum of wings
In seventeen seconds
The world explodes

And it buries the night a brave new sunrise
With a sweep of the sword, a blood red sunrise

You'll never see the faces
Of the fishermen
But you may see their shadows
