cast away your dreams and all those precious schemes is all that we held dear tossed aside replaced by fear
standing at the edge of the harbour branded with the sins of my mother will we ever learn or simply let it burn if it’s answers you seek let’s jump into the sea
the bellowing we hear it surrounds us, drawing near we often fantasize how to find life’s biggest prize everyone’s above it ’til they’re put in their place everyone’s a killer ’til a gun’s in their face tempted by the sound of violence, let me drown stay humble, shut your mouth you must not make a sound
stumble to a sprint, see them floating kinder, gentler souls have no place here send them off to sleep wave and fare them well for the answers we seek stare at the sea
(running to the sea the clearest, bluest sea take all the things we learned try to start again tempted by the sound the call to burn the ground so restless…)
