lyrics

Well I've been staring at my grave
I've been staring at all the things i could have done
And hearing all the things I could never say
I'm afraid I'll wash away
And that whatever tide that carries me will bring me
To colder depths or permanent grey

Despite the cellular breakdowns everything still feels in tact
And I will learn to divide, rebuild, and reconnect

It's only a matter of time before everything falls far beneath the sea
It's only a matter of time before we haunt the same coasts we were craving

So don't let me sink just yet
I need to feel the atmospheric changes
I need to feel the tease of places I could never grasp
The fear of forever floods the same
Too greatly it collides and fades
And I'm always left in the wake of these constant tidal waves

We abandoned the sins of a father, the secrets of a mother
We'll become new again when we're sleeping underwater

It's only a matter of time before everything falls far beneath the sea
It's only a matter of time before we haunt the same coasts we were craving
But one day hope will grow in this place
(one day hope will grow in this place)
And when the sky calls I'll be the first to meet its embrace

So show me how to live, show me how to breathe
Show me that the best part of being alive is never knowing anything
And even when my hands shake
Even when I can't stop screaming
Please say you can hear me, please just say you fucking hear me
Please just say

I'm afraid ill wash away,
I'm afraid ill wash away.

It's only a matter of time before everything falls far beneath the sea
It's only a matter of time before we haunt the same coasts we were craving
But one day hope will grow in this place
(one day hope will grow in this place)
And when the sky calls I'll be the first to meet its embrace

It's gonna be a long day
