about

A live acoustic performance of our song "Hiding from the Sea"

lyrics

I guess I'm missing the point of it
I guess I've taken it all for me
Now in my failure I've lost myself
And now I'm giving it all to the sea

I hope the waves will rip into me
I hope they wreck and destroy all I've been
To take all my mystery
To separate my soul from my skin

Cause I've been hiding from the sea too long
And I've been left alone and beached too long
Cause I've been begging for the ocean,
I've been crying for the shore
To take this mess that I've created
And make me whole once more

I've feigned my strength and ability
Misrepresentative soul I have built
I strayed away from stability
And now the blood of the world I have spilt
The world should ache in my deceit
The sky should crumble and fold for my skin
Oceans should rise up and swallow me
This punishment should unfold for my sin

Oh don't you try to save me right now
Cause I'm lost

Cause I've been hiding from the sea too long
And I've been left alone and beached too long
Cause I've been begging for the ocean,
I've been crying for the shore
To take this mess that I've created
And make me whole once more
