Lyrics

I wake up underwater again, hands above my head.

I’m reaching, but I keep descending.

It’s floating through my fingertips, your name, 

Ascending with the pressure from my final breath.

 

There’s not a word you haven’t heard before,

And there’s not a truth you haven’t said.

These lines we hook and throw, I follow through the air, into the water

But from there, I do not see where they will go

 

We’re running with the hive, one lagging foot behind,

and too late, what’s left to take?

We conquer and divide, and when the honey jar is dry, 

What’s left to taste?

There’s not a word you haven’t heard before,

And there’s not a truth you haven’t said

On the ocean bed I lie, and I can see and look around.

These lines were tangled, but down here they’re all spread out.

 

I’ll let you sleep, and I won’t wake you.

Don’t have a thing planned for tomorrow, there’s nothing we have to do

Let’s not speak, we never have to.

 

Focus, but not with your eyes, or all you’ll see is lines.

We need some distance for the light to illuminate.

Collect ‘em all, until you win, build it up around and in.

Soon you’ll find yourself at the bottom of the well.

There’s not a word you haven’t heard before,

And there’s not a truth you haven’t said.

That dot traced with your hand, but in time that star will grow.

I swear to God I haven’t seen that mark before.

 

Let’s not speak; we never have to.

There are so many ways to say it, does it matter how you choose?

I’ll let you sleep, and I won’t wake you.
