LYRICS

I Held My Breath

 

I don’t believe in anything

But I will try everything

Every spell that I know has been cast

For you I held my breath.

 

Oceans folded I made my bed.

Glaciers wept and I climbed back in.

I will wait until they pass.

For you I held my breath.

 

Ghosts upon me I kept them fed.

Whispers on me so I played dead.

I will wait until they pass.

For you I held my breath.

 

Ice storm on me so I laid flat.

Winter covered and buried it.

I will wait until they pass

For you I held my breath.

 

For you I held my breath.

For you I held my breath.

For you I held my breath.

For you I held my breath.

 

I don’t believe in anything

But I will try everything

Every spell that I know has been cast

For you I held my breath.

 

 

It’s Getting Close

 

It’s getting close and I can feel it

The sky is orange and my throat is burning

Where is the line between saving what we have and our lives.

And our lives.

 

Disaster, I wish I was faster than

Disaster there’s no choice in what it’s after.

 

It’s getting close and I can feel it

I put water and dried food in the basement

I’ll meet you there if my phone stops working.

If I can. If I can.

 

Disaster, I wish I was faster than

Disaster there’s no choice in what it’s after.

 

If I was faster than a tsunami flight.

You know I’d do everything right.

 

It’s getting close and I can feel it.

Don’t go outside if the ground starts shaking.

Wait until you are sure it’s over if you can.

If you can. If you can.

 

Disaster, I wish I was faster than

Disaster there’s no choice in what it’s after.

Disaster. It gets you once then it’s your master.

See it everywhere

In every story. Every chapter.

Disaster, I wish I was faster than

Building it up just to tear down after.

 

 

Do Whatever The Heck You Want

 

Should I be a man or a woman

What does that really mean?

Should I be outside of it?

Or something in between?

 

Do whatever the heck you want.

Do whatever the heck you want.

Don’t tell anyone what the heck to do.

Do whatever the heck you want.

 

Should I be an artist

Even after I turn forty?

Should I become an accountant

Cause I’m scared of money?

 

Do whatever the heck you want.

Do whatever the heck you want.

Don’t tell anyone what the heck to do.

Do whatever the heck you want.

 

 

Should I grow old in this body

If I am that lucky?

Should I change some part if it

Or redo the whole thing?

 

Do whatever the heck you want.

Do whatever the heck you want.

Don’t tell anyone what the heck to do.

Do whatever the heck you want.

 

Should I date men or women

Should I date non-binary

Should I date no one

And make my friends the thing.

 

Do whatever the heck you want.

Do whatever the heck you want.

Don’t tell anyone what the heck to do.

Do whatever the heck you want.

 

If you are telling someone what the heck to do.

If someone else is telling someone what the heck to do.

Hurting other people is not part of the deal \

Just sing

 

Do whatever the heck you want.

Do whatever the heck you want.

Don’t tell anyone what the heck to do.

Do whatever the heck you want.

 

 

In My Town

 

Friday night in my town

The drummer in the band.

Everyone is clapping.

Though heard what he did.

 

If you think there’s still a question

Look into the crowd.

Which person has lost nothing

And which one is not around?

 

It’s A broken city

It’s A broken scene

When not everyone

is believed

 

There’s a quiet in the room

Through the screaming sound.

Everyone is scared

if they talk about it they’ll drown.

 

They say watch your drink at a party.

Don’t walk downtown at night.

But when you tell the truth

his friends all say you are lying

In my town.

In my town

 

It’s A Broken City

It’s A Broken Scene

It’s A Broken City

It’s A Broken Scene

 

My town is on an island.

Sits on the water’s edge.

Someday a wave will come

and everyone will get drenched.

 

 

Seascape

 

We go to the seascape

to bleed all of the hate.

We go to the seascape

to wash off the wrong names.

 

Whatever keeps you breathing.

Whatever keeps you breathing.

Whatever keeps you breathing.

 

Nineteen on the shoreline.

I tried to make life.

drank whatever I could find.

Slept where they would have me.

 

Whatever keeps you breathing.

Whatever keeps you breathing.

Whatever keeps you breathing.

 

 

Meet me by the water.

When I’m feeling low that’s I go.

I will try to lift you

So that you can float.

 

When you’re feel low, low, low

You can float, float, float

When you feel low, low, low

Remember you can float, float, float.

 

Whatever keeps you breathing.

Whatever keeps you breathing.

Whatever keeps you breathing.

 

When you feel low, low, low

Remember you can float, float, float.

 

 

You Don’t Do Anything

 

Make your peace with the river

And don’t build a dam.

After hundreds of letter saying

please don’t flood our land.

This is where we live

And this is where we grow

You don’t need the power

And we’ve got nowhere else to go.

 

How am I supposed to believe

That you really care when you don’t do anything?

 

A country built on oil,

But it’s running out.

You still want pipelines from

North west east and south

We could stop and turn it all around

Before half of it spills

Back in the ground.

 

How am I supposed to believe

That you really care when you don’t do anything?

When you don’t do anything.

When you don’t do anything.

When you don’t do anything.

When you don’t do anything.

 

You should care about the water

From every single tap.

People getting sick

And you turn you your back.

And say you can’t act fast enough.

Would you let your children drink

from a polluted cup?

 

How am I supposed to believe

That you really care when you don’t do anything?

When you don’t do anything.

When you don’t do anything.

When you don’t do anything.

When you don’t do anything.

 

 

Bioluminescent

 

We joked that to would feel like flying

If the worst happened on the drive.

Snow was piling on the cliff.

The sea was on the other side.

 

The avalanche that almost came

To push us off the road.

I mean we were really close into

Turning into floating ghosts.

 

Floating ghosts

Floating ghosts

 

You said you wouldn’t really mind

Being part of that scene.

The animals of the deep.

Picking all of our bones clean.

 

The tsunami wave that never came

Was all we talked about that day

I mean we were really close into

Turning into floating ghosts.

 

Floating ghosts

Floating ghosts

 

We’d be the bioluminescent sheen seafarers would swear they see.

The bioluminescent sheen seafarers would swear they see.

We’d be the bioluminescent sheen seafarers would swear they see.

The bioluminescent sheen seafarers would swear they see.

 

Floating ghosts

Floating ghosts

 

The tsunami wave that never came

Was all we talked about that day

I mean we were really close into

Turning into floating ghosts.

 

 

It’s Not In My Body

 

It’s not in my body.

The answers you want from me.

Yes. I am my body.

But you try to turn, turn it on me.

 

I just want to travel in this ship

Without answering for all of it.

Don’t you know there’s many many ways

to live a life in the length of a day.

 

Send home the search party,

What you seek just isn’t in me.

And while you’re taking it apart.

It feels like an autopsy.

 

I just want to travel in this ship

Without answering for all of it.

Don’t you know there’s many many ways

to live a life in the length of a day.

 

You try to understand me

But you don’t ask what is in me.

Yes I am my body,

But you will never know me.

 

I just want to travel in this ship

Without answering for all of it.

Don’t you know there’s many many ways

to live a life in the length of a day.

 

I just want to travel in this ship.

I just want to travel in this ship.

I just want to travel in this ship.

 

 

Undertow

 

I’m waiting in suspense

I should have told you what I mean’t

Now everything looks still

if anyone moves it will.

 

It’s the undertow

It’s gonna pull pull pull you down you know.

It’s the undertow.

It’s gonna drag drag drag you far from home.

It’s the undertow

It’s gonna take away your words you know.

It’s the undertow.

It’s gonna wash you up and make you whole.

 

I said that I was not

Looking to get caught

So everything is calm

Now I know I was wrong.

 

It’s the undertow

It’s gonna pull pull pull you down you know.

It’s the undertow.

It’s gonna drag drag drag you far from home.

It’s the undertow

It’s gonna take away your words you know.

It’s the undertow.

It’s gonna wash you up and make you whole.

 

It’s the undertow

It’s gonna pull pull pull you down you know.

It’s the undertow.

It’s gonna drag drag drag you far from home.

It’s the undertow

It’s gonna take away your words you know.

It’s the undertow.

It’s gonna wash you up and make you whole.

 

 

Beach Of Bones

 

Beach of Bones

We are all out on loan.

There’s no depth to sink to where I wouldn’t know.

Oh Beach of Bones.

 

The water is whispering to us

In a language that only waves can discuss.

But I think it’s saying don’t let them wear you down.

Oh beach of bones.

 

I know the storms do come

When the lights go out and the magic is gone

They throw you in a place and won’t let you rearrange.

on the beach of bones.

 

They told us that we were alone.

They made us believe that we didn’t belong.

If water’s alive then we have a home

Oh Beach Of Bones

 

I know the herons will come.

Year after year they scream from above.

if the air is alive it’s not to be owned.

They’ll make us  a beach of bones.

 

Put It Back Together

Put It Back Together now

Put It Back Together

Put it Back Together now
