The Tide

lyrics

You've got yourself a better plan,
This roar a lie unseen.
You've got yourself a better plan
And you wait for it.

I've got a story
But you're not going to like my words.
You cast your hopes unto the sails
With your eyes closed.
While you're dreaming of these distant ships
You're head's buried in absolvent myth.

Horizons are glimmering
And so we reminisce
About what we could have been.

I am this anchor,
I am this squall.
I'll have you dreaming of the end.
I'll have you foaming at the brink again and again.
You're casting viscious glances overhead,
I'll play this role of saviour for your life of pretend.

You too must suffer this.
You're pacified and dumb
And you're blind to what you've done,
Some kind of heartless catalyst.

Where is your love?
You said he would be here.
I could have told you he would fail us all.
The look in your eyes is almost worth the pain.
To see it rise and know we'll all be washed away.

So dig your heels in
And know you played a part in this.
A parting gift.

Horizons are glimmering
And so we reminisce
About what we could have been.

Unravelling before our eyes,
Like vapour in night skies.
Shedding skin and parasites,
The silenced realign.

Unravelling before our eyes,
Like vapour in night skies.
Shedding skin and parasites,
Your proof for the divine.

Empty words you lived your life by
Answered by the silent night.
Empty promises that held you
Warm at winter's height.
Washed away by the tide.
