lyrics

Lyrics:

We were lost at the ledge of a well
Just to dwell on the distance we dared not to drink
We were found weighing worthy the risk
Against ill-fated ships as they'd sail off and sink
Eyes were open underwater
We were smitten for the sting
Carved in the arc of a question mark
All the words disembarked as we braced the window frame
And all the anchor's links, they'd sing, relinquish everything

In this sea of sirens and blinding lights
I am not floating
I have not been holding my breath
And underneath
I still believe that common words are not enough
To fix your image across a canvas caught in unforgotten time
It gets lost between the reason and the rhyme

(Safe, washed away)

The stasis stole them from my tongue
The notes unfolding to be sung
Listless, transfixed on your chrysalis
This is the prison I painted
Here I reside
Searing my throat on the notes that it cannot find
The sight of the moment
The hope and intent
My eyes can't avoid it but I can't pretend
All of the threads come to meet at the ends
But the one undone I couldn't mend
Overstated, I have cost myself the cadence once again

In this sea of sirens and blinding lights
I am not floating
I have not been holding my breath
And underneath
I still believe that common words are not enough
To fix your image across a canvas caught in unforgotten time
When it's tossed through fleeting seasons of my mind

Held out for one last kiss
A severance
Now I'm breathing in the water
And I'll heave until the hollow flees my lungs

Unsung
It's the omen of every loss to come
And it's opened with a blade across the tongue
In your still frames a silent truth is shown
In the ones that you reach out to touch
And the ones you leave alone
