Four Days in Roanoke

from Uh Oh Dear by Ilima Considine

lyrics

It's awfully quiet pulling in the harbor
We should have been here three years ago
There was a camp, there was a child
there's nothing here except the quiet

Don't bother looking here, everyone's gone
I don't know why, but something went wrong
What news? What news? Bad news, bad news
And it's all about the ways you choose to live your life

You can knock me down but you can't keep me there
You can knock me down but you can't keep me there

If you have to leave, leave a sign
Try to leave something behind
We don't have bodies, we don't know why
There are voices in the sky
What news? What news? Bad news, bad news
And it's all about the ways you choose to live your life

You can knock me down but you can't keep me there
You can knock me down but you can't keep me there

You don't have to spend four days in Roanoke to see everyone's gone
And it's plain to see that something went wrong
It's been so long and whatever's the reason, everything's over, over, over, over
(Why don't you go ahead and kill the messenger)
Every soul we left here was lost
(Go ahead! Do it!)
You can knock me down but you can't keep me there
You can knock me down but you can't keep me there
