lyrics

The Sea is Full of Loss

You tremble like leaves
Before a raging storm
The vast swirl of unease
Moves its way through your form
It can’t end like this
You haven’t found the key
You swam through the abyss
A dark and brooding sea

The waves, they moan
The sea is full of loss
The skin, the stone
We pay a deadly cost

The sea is full of loss

When dark fell it seemed
That all the world had choked
On black sands of this beach
An under-worldly smoke
The past came to collect
A shared debt of shame
And you failed to select
A proper family name

The waves, they moan
The sea is full of loss
The skin, the stone
We pay a deadly cost

The sea is full of loss

You tremble like leaves
Before a raging storm
Familiar chants of unease
Move through the crowds alone
It can’t end like this
There must be a line
That we can draw in the sand
That we won’t cross this time

You can’t go back again
You can’t begin again
You say that you were never circling the end, or this
You never wanted this, you said
But this is what you ended up with then
You’re back - you’re trying this again
And it is orbiting a black hole
Of despair, of pain
It cannot be the same
Don’t change
Don’t call out her name
