They called here to tell me
That you're finally dying
Through a veil of childish cries
Southern Manitoba
Prairie's pulling at the
Pant leg of your bad disguise
So why were you so

Anchorless
A boat abandoned in some backyard
Anchorless
Small town that you lived and died in

Shoe box full of photos
Found a grainy mirror
Sunken cheeks and slender hands
Grocery lists and carbon
Copied letters offer
Silence for my small demands
Hey how'd you get so

Anchorless
A boat abandoned in some backyard
Anchorless
Small town that you lived and died in

Got an armchair from your family home
Got your P.G. Wodehouse novels and your telephone
Got your plates and stainless steel
Got that way of never saying what you really feel so

Anchorless
A boat abandoned in some backyard
Anchorless
Small town that you lived and died in

Don't want to live and die here
Don't want to live and die here where we're

Anchorless, anchorless
Anchorless, anchorless
Small town that we live and die in
