lyrics

~Tarimbang (Far End Of The World)~
Oceans flat in Tarimbang don’t see no waves
So I just sit and sing yeah whoa oh whoa oh
On this porch of bamboo and grass, up on stilts
Don’t know long its gonna last for no oh no oh
Coconuts, pigs in ruts, motorbikes and grass roofed huts
Feral dogs, carved out logs that we float upon. At least I don’t see no smog
No oh no oh hey hey

I’m at the far end of the world, so far from where I’ve come whoa oh ooo oh
Old ladies and little girls work so hard, so hard to get it done
At the far end of the world
Whoa oh whoa oh at the far end of the world
Whoa oh whoa oh at the far end of the world

Take a break from my everyday, unplug my life so I can hear the trees sway
Mosquito nets and wild pets, we hedge our bets with the mohawks that we shave
A village wife, a rusty knife, oh this simple life, so very hard to beat yeah
Where ‘wet’ is ‘clean’ the sun gets mean and no sunscreen goin’ protect you from the heat yeah
It’s so hot, it’s so hot, it’s so hot, it’s so hot, yeah yeah yeah

I’m at the far end of the world, so far from where I’ve come whoa oh ooo oh
Old ladies and little girls, work so hard, so hard to get it done
Here I look in from way outside, I can’t be sure just what,
What it is in front of my eyes
I take a little of my pride and ship it back to where, back to where I feel alive
At the far end of the world
Whoa oh whoa oh at the far end of the world
