lyrics

Whatever was me has been sent out to sea.
Setting sails, like a lover's plea.
We make our ways through crashing waves,
And coral caverns with seaweed graves.
The sun it shimmers, on our crystal tombs.
And Mermaids greet us with open wounds.
The catch is just a catch, at 22.
We feed our families, but we take from you.

If she sinks, she sings, we'll catch her.
If she sinks, she sings.
If she sinks, she sings, we'll catch her.
If she sinks, she sings.

I've lived a thousand years, in a thousand days.
I tried to cut through this, obsidian gaze.
Our lives are measured in each, each passing phase.
And our worth is treasured in each, lashing praise.

I die, you die, but we carry on, with a sailor's song.
I lie, you lie, but we bury our lives in pretending that they're long.

The sea it sighs, with each each sunken cage.
Sunken eyes realize, we've lived a thousand years, in a thousand days.

Oh, I wanted so bad just to set you free.
Jaded hearts that tear us apart from, what will never be.
Like our wife and our kids, that we'll never get to miss.
And time is running into, the blue abyss.
With a quest just to find untouched, unchartered shore.
But the bodies have run dry:
There's no more to explore.
And wax has sealed our notes to home,
And our backs have broken into,
sea foam.

If she sinks she sings: We'll go down with her.
If she sinks, then she sings.
If she sinks she sings: We'll go down with her.
If she sinks she sings.

I've lived a thousand years in a thousand days.
And our lives are measured in each passing phase.

I die, you die, but we carry on, with a sailor's song.
I lie, you lie, but we bury our lives, in pretending that they're long.

The sea it cries with each crashing cage.
Crazy eyes, realize, we've lived a thousand years,'
in a thousand days.
