The Ship

  • The Ship was from the willing land
    The waves about it roll

    And as aglow by powdered sand
    We lift, we loot, we haul

    The time is still
    The sky is young
    Drawn on towards the goal
    And we are as the undescribed
    To take and lose control

    Oh hallelujah, pray for me,
    the man who turned away.

    My desert in a grain of sand.
    My life within a day.

    So smooth the stones that count the tides,
    the piper plays a reed.

    But we are as the undefined,
    breaking of the wing.

    When pray with time at memory day
    And pray the tie told
    The sail is down the wind is gone
    The sky is blessed with growth
    The slave to host a pistody
    Illusion of control
    And we are as the unrefined
    The wake about to roll

    [Background female voice talking]
    "Can I take the freedom and forget you?
    How can it, form contractions
    Don't talk that I'm frightened
    Do I know exactly my husband?
    That I Love You. We miss you, after that
    Go get brethren (grab her then)
    I still act"

    [Intermixed by different men voices interjecting words]
    "Go about it, A song
    Another ghost, by himself, I like that
    you are too polite
    The thing
    -No wait!-
    Come back
    A man
    In twos
    A timer
    The sand
    Light up
    The vibration
    That pearly
    What a waste
    Of help
    As Wave

    After Wave
    After Wave [x3]
