In the morning I’ll be gone,
I’ve seen too much, for far too long.
The waves will fight me all the way,
but nothing changes if I stay.

Under moonlight life exhales,
cut the ropes and raise the sails.
It’s here we catch the wind and ride,
escape in darkness on the tide.

Oh, Oh, Oh,

The sea surrounding starts to rise,
and something clicks behind the eyes.

As sure as clouds begin to form,
the sun evaporates the storm.

Foreign corners of my heart,
if only human hands could chart.
The broken parts that I neglect,
unentered rooms where fears collect.
The growing swells, the blinding rain,
The vessel groans beneath the strain...

Oh, Oh, Oh

The sea surrounding starts to rise,
and something clicks behind the eyes,

What lies behind I can’t regret,
but broken bones must still be set;
To right the rights and own debt,
To steer the ship into the threat...
