lyrics

i wanna see
something more than me
something i am not
something long forgot

watching the waves wash in
feeling the fall begin
hoping to find a hope
as ocean islands float

i'm in a puzzled place
mentally and in space
the shells on the dazzling shore
are difficult to ignore

patterns of dots and stripes
surrounding the empty inside
running away from truth
running away to you

the ocean is rising
and maybe it'll drown us all
motions of whitecaps
rushing down the hall

foam on the mountaintops
snowy capes combined
i'll light my night-light
and serenade the brine

giving away my heart
waiting to fall apart
surely i have to be
something more than me

surrounded by silent suns
i don't know which way to run
precarious crumbling wall
i don't know which way to fall

i became the sea (but i am just a wave)
something more than me (the shore is far away)
but blown and tossed about (without a loss of shame)
wind will wear me out (it tears into the sail)

and yet i've come this far (i met a steady way)
sunrise, wonder, stars (the sky will never change)
whatever i become (if it's another grey)
i don't want to run (can i escape escape)

the ocean is rising
and maybe it'll drown us all
motions of whitecaps
rushing down the hall

foam on the mountaintops
snowy capes combined
i'll light my night-light and i'll
serenade the brine

and yet i've come this far
sunrise, wonder, stars
whatever i become
i hope my escape is done
