lyrics

Well I’ve known since the day you told me that you’d stow yourself inside my vaults,
That you would beg me silence sail inside me you’re the one to coincide my faults,
But I grew fins to fade into the sea,
Watching through the waves to see the birds come sailing downwind on the breeze.

Now quit your praying for the way I’ll be.

Cause I’ll be lazy sinking from the ways that you’ll be thinking I should be.
And you’ll keep running circles round the jericho that is garrisoning me.

But the children slowly creep up from beneath.
Take hostage all the dials that keep us spinning around our sunset galaxy
and ransom off the walls around us

Don’t you see that this is where we’ve been?
We strangle out the green

Well you’ve known since the day I told you that I’d stow myself inside your vaults…that I’d be begging endless don’t pretend this secret sentence
can be all my fault

But you grew wings to sail where I can’t be,
Now diving at my waves you’re shouting
“Things aren’t always what they first may seem”
Well the water bends the light into a dream
