lyrics

The black tide is pulling
And I can’t see
I was happy today
But the thought ran free

I could climb through the window
Maybe find you there
But you float like oil
And the sea’s run scared

Engineer the wires
We’re lines apart
Painting in the air
It’s the new art
And are we distant
Or have we found
This is the ceiling
And this is the ground?

Sometimes the silence
Is all I need
Words lie scattered
Stone ground the seed
And though we are touching
The connection is worn
So, we take comfort
In a skin now torn

Engineer the wires
We’re lines apart
Painting in the air
It’s the new art
And are we distant
Or have we found
This is the ceiling
And this is the ground?

And so we watch
We are perfectly still
The secret’s in the shade
But we lost the will
