lyrics

I am stranded on this island singing whale songs in my sleep
Praying to any god who's listening that I've got a soul to keep
I am fraying at my edges, picking hard at every seam
You can look for hidden meanings but it's really not that deep
I'm not that deep

What do you do when all you can do is dissolve
Drag out every consequence til the last one is the cause
"We're treading water" they say, but I'm not one to absolve
The sins of all my yesterdays
I write down my scattered thoughts

I'm a breaker on the shoreline
I'm the last train leaving town
I'm the concrete dam that's holding back your tides
I'm the anchor to your everything
Leave me til I drown

Canonize your afternoons, I'll be sleeping in the streets
Just wasting all my hours, kicking out all my relief
And I'm still waiting on this island, a lonely shipwrecked thief
I don't own my only answers
They went down with my beliefs

I'm a breaker on the shoreline
I'm the last train leaving town
I'm the concrete dam that's holding back your tides
I'm the anchor to your everything
Leave me til I drown

Leave me til I drown
Leave me til I drown
