Nomenclature

Album: Noble Beast (2009)
Play Video
  • Just think of the lives you could swap with your own
    While you're selling your coats, you're sewing your own
    You know it's not the easy way

    Sometimes we've got to pay to play
    With finger paints and macrame
    It's time we asked the sea and say
    Could you bring a different nomenclature?

    Now the colors have bled to gray
    To ones that don't exist in nature

    A nomenclature is washing away, washing away
    A nomenclature is washing away, washing away
    But did it carry you away, carry you all the way?

    Did it carry you away, carry you all the way?
    Nomenclature's washing away, oh it's washing us all away
    Nomenclature's washing away, oh it's washing us all away
