Upon the sand, upon the bay
 +
"There is a quick and easy way" you say
 +
Before you illustrate
 +
I'd rather state:
 +
 +
I'm not the man you think I am
 +
I'm not the man you think I am
 +
 +
And sorrow's native son
 +
He will not smile for anyone
 +
And pretty girls make graves
 +
 +
End of the pier, end of the bay
 +
You tug my arm, and say: "give in to lust
 +
Give up to lust, oh heaven knows we'll
 +
Soon be dust"
 +
 +
Oh, I'm not the man you think I am
 +
I'm not the man you think I am
 +
 +
And sorrow's native son
 +
He will not rise for anyone
 +
And pretty girls make graves

(Oh, really?)
 +
I could have been wild and I could have been free
 +
But Nature played this trick on me
 +
 
 +
She wants it now
 +
And she will not wait
 +
But she's too rough
 +
And I'm too delicate
 +
 
 +
Then, on the sand
 +
Another man, he takes her hand
 +
A smile lights up her stupid face
 +
(And well, it would)

==Personnel==

I lost my faith in womanhood
 +
I lost my faith in womanhood
 +
I lost my faith
    +
Hand in glove
 +
The sun shines out of our behinds
