lyrics

they won't kill you on a holiday
the river runs east to Sankarai
to sick to feel
the batons hit your hands and knees
bamboo Hotel Cholera
the shadow of death trying to crawl to ya
the devil's hands
the shame of man

and so you fade away

heading for the California sun
he put away his bullets and his guns
my father was a simple man
he held my mother's hand

oh you fall, you stop
you call out your name
they came
the flame, the flame picked you up
it held you up
the hands that touched your hands
your legs, your face
they took you away
away from this soulless place
they saved your grace

and so you sailed away

heading for the California sun
you put away his bullets and his guns
my father was a simple man
he held my mother's hand

heading for the California sun
he put away his bullets and his guns
my father was a simple man
he held my mother's hand

oh her eyes they danced like fire flies
oh her halo was bathed in light
oh her eyes they danced like fire flies
oh her halo was bathed in light

they won't kill you on a holiday
they won't kill you on a holiday

and so they sailed away

heading for the California sun
they put away his bullets and his guns
my father was a simple man
he held my mother's hand

heading for the California sun
he put away his bullets and his guns
my father was a simple man
he held my mother's hand
