Lyrics:

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…)
