lyrics

Your eyes to trace the skyline but it doesn't really track
The landmark trees have died the plan was never coming back
You got the slow death tone, watch the world go on without you
The stars enlarge and drift apart
This dwelling by the cliffs is not a home

Chorus
What if I've never been here
What if I can never leave
The water beats the wind here
Can you distinguish it from me

Taken home where nothing looks familiar
These ancient lives were sanitized
Could I have really been here
Bored into the stone
These pits and spikes have only grown
The distance can't be overcome
Must be headed home

Chorus

Enjoy the signal show, the phantoms interact here
Hearts are beaten by receding skies
The darkened waves below
You got the slow death tone
And offered to distract her
Dive beneath that shining beach
each person leaves alone

Chorus x2
