A whistling kite flies over the carpark
When I was a kid it used to be a farm
Now it's an asphalt-ringed big box on the edge of town
It happened in 1997, happened back in the 80s
But everyone's forgotten
Short memories when you're in and out

"You can't stop progress!" Gerry said
Turns out he was right
Now you've got draglines twinkling every night

So the hi-viz tides went out, taking the women, the children, the nurses, the hairdressers and all their money with them
All the pits filled, all the lines stopped, all the doors closed
Nothing sadder than an empty strip club in a country town

"You can't stop progress!" Gerry said
He was right, but this wasn't what he meant
And now, this town is how it used to be

This town is how it used to be
