The Islands of Despair

Dark clouds cast a spell upon the tides
Green hills ask for another sacrifice
I heard you say that you felt the moment shift
I think we knew it would somehow come to this

We lost our way - we let the landslide shift our center
And try as we may - there are times when nothing works
I’ll find a safe place - I will turn over every stone
I promise to try, promises made are the only saving grace

Looking out over islands of despair
The sea reacts to the carnage everywhere
I saw your face - I could see you losing hope
It makes perfect sense when destruction is all we’ve known

We lost our way - we let the landslide shift our center
And try as we may - there are times when nothing works
I’ll find a safe place - I will turn over every stone
I promise to try, promises made are the only saving grace

Tell me when it’s safe to look
Tell me when morning comes
And give me another chance to sail again
Give me another chance to survive

We lost our way - we let the landslide shift our center
And try as we may - there are times when nothing works
I’ll find a safe place - I will turn over every stone
I promise to try, promises made are the only saving grace
