My father was a fisherman
My mother was a fisherman's friend,
and I was born amid the boredom
and the Lovecratian horror.

Of course Paul Simon's Duncan (1) doesn't go quite like that, but if it was about the residents of the creepy New England town Daryl Gregory brings to life, though life seems too strong a word for the residents, so let's go with being, the song might very well might have.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Harrison Harrison--H2 to his mom--is a lonely teenager who's been terrified of the water ever since he was a toddler in California when a huge sea creature capsized their boat and his father vanished. One of the "sensitives" who are attuned to the supernatural world, Harrison, together with his marine biologist mother, has just moved to the worst possible place for a boy like him: Dunnsmouth, Massachusetts, a Lovecraftian town perched on rocks above the Atlantic where strange things go on by night, monsters lurk under the waves, and creepy teachers run the local high school.

On Harrison's first day at school, his mother disappears at sea. Harrison must attempt to solve the mystery of her accident, which puts him in conflict with a strange church, a knife-wielding killer, and the Deep Ones: fish-human hybrids that live in the bay. It will take all his resources—and an unusual host of allies—to defeat the danger and find his mother.
