lyrics

Catching old tales, before the light goes dim. I saved a life today, with all the things I did
Watching old wars play out on the screens, sink at least a couple of beers before the good guys win.
I know that old tune, but I couldn't tell you what, what I know is a shorter list than what I forgot.
See the spray paint signs behind the parking lot, there stands a man I could have been but I am not.

Winter is coming in
And I see your shirt is wearing thin
These old songs, they don't sound like they did.
And there's a message there that was never clearer hid.

We are northshoremen
This is our brotherhood
We are northshoremen
The sea is in our blood
We are northshoremen
And we are not yet done.
We're tired of holding on
For a best that's yet to come

Winter is coming in, And I see your shirt is wearing thin.
Catching old tales, before the light goes dim. I saved a life today, with all the things I did

We are northshoremen
This is our brotherhood
We are northshoremen
The sea is in our blood
We are northshoremen
And we are not yet done.
We're tired of holding on
For a best that's yet to come

We are northshoremen, this is our brotherhood.
We are northshoremen, the sea is in our blood.

You may have heard that The Southern Wild were found hanging from a tree outside Warakurna, raw and untamed. Roped and branded, they were boxed and shipped to northern England to be displayed to cheering crowds at freak shows and other music festivals.
You may know this not to be true. You may know that The Southern Wild sprang, full-grown, from the belly of a bison. You may wish to know more...
