Remittance Man

Sinner on the mainland

He's a sinner on the sea

He looks for absolution

Not accountability



How many destinations

Oh God he's seen them all

He collects his precious pittance

In every port of call



Chorus

Remittance man

Black sheep of the family clan

Broke too many rules along the way

Remittance man

So far away from home

No they'll never understand the remittance man



Verse

A man of empty pockets

From jingling his change

The idleness and grieving

Are all that he retains

By the harbor lights of Sydney

Or the Bora Bora moon

He recites his sad confession

To the seagulls and the loons



Chorus

Remittance man

Black sheep of the family clan

Broke too many rules along the way

Remittance man

So far away from home

No they'll never understand the remittance man



Bridge

You could claim that you were born a prince

But you're the only one you cna convince

Survivor with no livelihood, that you could ever make it good

But still you dream of what you can't pretend



Verse

An unexpected passenger

Boarded in Marseilles

An angel full of tenderness

She gave her heart away



She was but a gypsy

He was just a stray

They almost made a miracle

But it slowly slipped away



So he follows the equator

With a wish to run aground

It's a very vicious circle

Going round and round and round



Now he watches from the fantail

As the mainland disappears

Just like the Flying Dutchman

He's a prisoner of his fears



Chorus

Remittance man

Black sheep of the family clan

Broke too many rules along the way

Remittance man

So far away from home

No they'll never understand (x3)
