|Repeat all x2


Of all the churning random hearts
Under the sun
Eventually fading into night,
These two are opening now
As we lie, I touch you
Under fuller light

Girl, if you're a seascape
I'm a listing boat, for the thing carries every hope
I invest in a single lie
The choice is yours to be loved
Come away from an emptier boat

'Cause when the dead moon
Rises again
There's no time to start a protocol
To hem us in
And when the dog slides
Underneath the train,
There's no time, no use searching for
The mutt's remains

Throw all consequence aside
And a cheerless pyre we will set alight

Of all the intersecting lines in the sand
I routed a labyrinth to your lap
I never used a map sliding off the land
On an incidental tide,
And along the way you know, they tried
They tried

And we got sea legs
And we're off tonight
Can I have that to which they've no right
You belong to a simpler time
I'm a victim to the impact of these words,
And this rhyme

'Cause when that dead moon
Rises again
We've no time to start a protocol
To hem us in
Darling, when the dog slides,
Open the door and where'd she go
There's no time, no use to searching for
The mutt's remains

Throw all consequence aside
And a cheerless pyre we will set alight
