lyrics

saw him with his head on his knees
wouldn't wave, wouldn't wave goodbye
everyone gone, everyone distant
oh, but he wouldn't move
like a stone in the river

golden boy, where is your mother,
where is your brother?
are you here alone?
oh, but you wouldn't move
still and unseen
just the wind in the trees
and the red in the sky
and the black of the church
and the cracks of the earth,
boy, where will you go now

everyone leaves
tears flowing freely
a stone in the river
silence, silence is king

everyone leaves, everyone dies
oh, but you are not moved, my golden boy
