Across The Water

Album: Blank Project (2014)
  • To the fickle let it drop
    We have the power to sustain
    Like the motor needs the food
    To bring more power to our brain
    Now we bought it back
    So let me make it clean
    Since our mother's gone, it always
    Seems to rain
    And the boose, and the friends and the party
    Never ends!
    No excuse for behavior than no one can defend
    We reflect in the quiet
    Times inside our heads
    And get thanks from our children
    Tuck tight sweet leap in their beds
    Inside their heads
    Trickling water dripping down
    Slow like some rivers without a sound
    Passed many times since you've been on my side
    I'm still here, but I keep you deep inside

    With my two hands across the water
    With my two feet in the sea
    My fear is for my daughters,
    But good god will show them me
    Take our lambs off to the slaughter,
    Take their lives so perfectly
    Like your bricks are filled with mortar
    Cast your wisdom to the brede

    Cracks? in fall lines
    NYC talks to me
    Slow like some rivers on our mother's TV
    NYX she speaks to me in tongues
    Keeps me to her breast, pumps air into my lungs

    With my two hands across the water
    With my two feet in the sea
    My fear is for my daughters,
    But good god will show them me
    Take our lambs off to the slaughter,
    Take their lives so perfectly
    Like your bricks are filled with mortar
    Cast your wisdom to the brede

    With my two hands across the water
    With my two feet in the sea
    My fear is for my daughters,
    But good god will show them me
    Take our lambs off to the slaughter,
    Take their lives so perfectly
    Like your bricks are filled with mortar
    Cast your wisdom to the brede Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
