lyrics

is there a plot to untwist?
another ending than this?
unfolding like a rose in bloom
you're in a maze but can't see
or in a line but can't lead
it's hard to pick what you can't choose

with the current strong and pulling at your feet
the waves regress, the tides, they receive me
some essence of yourself inside the sea
the drift, the thrust, the fall

sometimes my tongue's in my cheek
or it's too loose, I can't speak
I'll stutter, spit, and lose meaning
could this be more than a flick?
more like a slap on the wrist?
that welcomes the unknown

because there's times I regret the things I never did
I never had a sober cigarette
and now it's 4am and the monsters, they never rest
they never go away

put me to sleep, sound mind, sound dreams
and I heard the clap of thunder
a great sound, it was like no other
then I woke up, eyes wide, mouth shut
and I saw a flash of lightning
a white sky, it was there to blind me
the storm clouds were getting closer

put me to sleep, sound mind, sound dreams
and I heard the clap of thunder
a great sound, it was like no other
then I woke up, eyes wide, mouth shut
and I saw a flash of lightning
and let go of ties that bound me
a ripcord of sorts in motion
a lost soul out in the ocean
you can't stop the world from spinning
it's like time, there's no beginning
its loose hands are seeking closure
I'm right here, I'm just thinking it over
because if I die, I'm taking you with me
to the grave, eternally
if I die
