  • Walking along the high tide line
    Watching the pacific from the sidelines
    Wonder what it means to live together?
    Looking for more than just guidelines

    Looking for signs in the night sky,
    Wishing that I wasn’t such a nice guy
    Wonder what it means to live forever?
    Wonder what it means to die?

    I know that there's a meaning to it all
    A little resurrection every time I fall
    You got your babies, I got my hearses
    Every blessing comes with a set of curses
    I got my vices, I got my vice verses
    I got my vice verses

    The wind could be my new obsession
    The wind could be my new depression
    The wind goes anywhere it wants to
    Wishing that I learned my lesson

    The ocean sounds like a garage band
    Coming at me like a drunk man
    The ocean tells me a thousand stories
    None of them are lies

    I know that there's a meaning to it all
    A little resurrection every time I fall
    You got your babies, I got my hearses
    Every blessing comes with a set of curses
    I got my vices, I got my vice verses
    I got my vice verses

    Let the pacific laugh
    Be on my epitaph
    With it's rising and falling
    And after all, it's just water
    And I am just soul
    With a body of water and bones
    Water and bones

    Where is God in the night sky?
    Where is God in the city light?
    Where is God in the earthquake?
    Where is God in the genocide?

    Where are you in my broken heart?
    Everything seems to fall apart
    Everything feels rusted over
    Tell me that you're there

    I know that there's a meaning to it all
    A little resurrection every time I fall
    You got your babies, I got my hearses
    Every blessing comes with a set of curses
    I got my vices, I got my vice verses
    These are my vice verses
    These are my vice verses

    Yeah
    These are my vice verses Writer/s: JON FOREMAN
