    It was late in July in the midst of his teens
    He staggered onto the sand alone as nobody else could be seen
    Sat to ponder when a nightmare intervened
    Unsettling shrill of a midnight scream

    It's too hard to walk away when terror is not too far
    When he went to investigate, the blood was boiling

    Under the boards was a figure obstructed from view
    20/20 is nothing at quarter to two
    He stumbled over to confirm that this was true
    And couldn't stop his screaming

    It's too hard to walk away when terror is not too far
    When he went to investigate, the blood was boiling
    And who could ever leave her like this?
    He took her hand inside of his
    A flatline, no sign insisting wrist
    How much worse could the world that we live in be?

    Lying quiet and still, complexion at peace with dismay
    By the moonlight bay the boardwalk body lay
    Lying quiet and still, complexion at peace with dismay
    By the moonlight bay the boardwalk body lay

    The next morning they all whispered about Jane Doe
    Of all importance was just being the first to know
    Any evidence was taken out by the tide
    It's just a nihilist that wreaks his craft with pride

    It's too hard to walk away when terror is not too far
    When he went to investigate, the blood was boiling

    Lying quiet and still, complexion at peace with dismay
    By the moonlight bay the boardwalk body lay
    Lying quiet and still, complexion at peace with dismay
    By the moonlight bay the boardwalk body lay
