lyrics

An Accident

Everyone agreed it was an accident
But nobody really knew what happened
Weren’t too many people around
Witnesses were thin on the ground
Even looking back on events
There was a general sense
That none of it was every meant
To have ever gone down the way it did
Inquests and enquiries
The endless questions were tiring
Answers weren’t exactly thick and fast
The wider interest couldn’t last
Just ride it out was what they thought
A temporary trap not quite caught
There’s a way out if they bide their time
If there is no weapon then there is no crime
Just an unfortunate accident
Maybe we’ll never know what really happened

But we’ve come too far
Down this blind track
Yeah it’s too late
Now we can’t turn back

Everyone agreed it was an accident
But nobody really knew what happened
Every answer slightly varied
Obscured the truth if not buried
The lookout briefly looked away
Erased recordings had nothing to say
Various people proving unreliable
Other avenues were just not viable
None of the facts reconciled
Enough at least to stand up on trial
So a little more time went by
And sleeping dogs were left to lie
This largely forgotten moment
Something to be left unspoken
Just an unfortunate accident
Maybe we’ll never know what happened
No official punishments or restitution
We don’t need a sanction for retribution
